Mo Brooks found this intolerable, demanded justification, held up passage to demagogue a $36/year fee hike at a time the entire garbage business was transitioning to wheeled bins.
More than one of his adoring volunteers cited this story to me as an example of his commitment to conservative, small-government values.
He had saved them $6/year.
Mo Brooks has pandered to this visceral hatred every time I've seen him talk.
When speaking, he would always mention how everyone he met wanted to talk about immigrants.
He was hardly the only Republican running on an anti-immigration platform.
Because God forbid we pay a farthing to collect the garbage of any undocumented immigrants. Thieves!
Global? Warming? Pah! Down with both.
