Government Pork: Your Tax Dollars at Waste

Thomas Schatz at The City Club of Cleveland


Thomas A. Schatz, president of Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) and Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW), will speak about waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in govenrment spending at noon on Friday, April 28, 2006, at The City Club of Cleveland.


CAGW, in conjunction with the Buckeye Institute for Public Policy Solutions, published the 2005 Ohio Piglet Book, which identifies $3.5 billion it feels Ohio could save by eliminating wasteful and/or unnecessary spending. More than two dozen capital projects of Northeast Ohio organizations were named by the booklet as being wasteful to Ohio taxpayers’ pocketbooks.


CAGW, founded by J. Peter Grace and Jack Anderson in 1984 following the release of the Grace Commission report, is a nonprofit, educational organization with more than one million members and supporters nationwide. According to official Office of Management and Budget and CAGW figures, implementation of Grace Commission and other waste-cutting recommendations has helped save taxpayers more than $825 billion since its inception.

Schatz is a nationally recognized spokesperson on government waste and has appeared on hundreds of radio talk shows, network television news programs, and local network affiliates. As president of CCAGW, the nonprofit lobbying organization, Schatz has testified numerous times on government waste issues before committees of the United States Senate and House of Representatives. He also spearheaded the nationwide expansion of the grassroots Taxpayers Action Network.


Tickets for this City Club Friday Forum are $18 for members and $30 for non-members. Lunch is included. Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance of the event. They can be purchased by calling The City Club at 216.621.0082 or visiting the website at www.cityclub.org.
