Tell Congress: Lock Out Pornography on Government Computers Buddy Smith AFA Senior Vice-President MORE

The United States is $19 trillion in debt, but still paying for federal employees to waste countless hours at work surfing pornography sites.

Thankfully, Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) has asked House Committee on Appropriations Chairman Harold Rogers (R-KY) to include language in all future appropriations bills that forces federal agencies to block access to pornography on all government computer networks.

So far, Rogers has remained silent and uncommitted.

Jones made the request in a letter to Rogers on March 17 after seeing a porn-blocking provision included in appropriations bills for a few agencies, but not all.

"My solution is simple and I urge all of my colleagues to join me in blocking employees at all federal agencies from viewing porn on the job," wrote Jones. "We respectfully urge you to ensure that this important funding restriction is included in all future appropriations bills."

Some of the missing agencies include the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of the Interior, "which have been the subject of high profile media stories about their employees surfing porn at the office," Jones wrote.

There have been numerous news reports of EPA employees caught watching porn. These employees weren't always fired, and were sometimes even promoted.

Please join the effort to put a stop to government employees viewing pornography during work hours using their work computers.
