Scott: Pigs in a Trough

“One thing we can’t do right now, in the middle of this three-and-a-half-year recession, is by taking more money out of people’s hardworking pocketbooks and wallets and giving it to the federal government,” Brown said. “They’re like pigs at a trough up there -- they’ll just take and take and take.”
