Ray LaHood a Complete Government Hood

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has not in his entire life ever received a paycheck from a private sector non-government affiliated enterprise. He joined the government by teaching in public schools and has hop scotched in government and government related jobs ever since then. Bottom line, this guy is a total government hood.

Before becoming Secretary of Transportation, LaHood served for 14 years in the U.S. House of Representatives from the 18th District of Illinois (from 1995-2009). Prior to his election to the House, he served as Chief of Staff to U.S. Congressman Robert Michel, whom he succeeded in representing the 18th District, and as District Administrative Assistant to Congressman Thomas Railsback. He also served in the Illinois State Legislature, according to his Transportation Department bio.

Before his outright political career, Secretary LaHood was a junior high school teacher, having received his degree from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois. He was also director of the Rock Island County Youth Services Bureau and Chief planner for the Bi-States Metropolitan Planning Commission in Illinois.

LaHood received a 0% rating from the conservative and anti-earmark Club for Growth 2007 RePORK Card. He received an 11% rating from the conservative lobbying group Citizens Against Government Waste for 2007 and holds a lifetime 49% rating from the group.

The man has never earned a private sector penny and now is in a position to harass, and tell Toyota how to run their business. Do you think he would be as forceful if the problem was with General Motors? Not a chance.


  1. Toyota has received over 100 complaints regarding the braking system of the 2010 Prius hybrid 2010 Prius hybrid

  2. Who is talking about brakes? This is all about a sticking gas pedal.

    There are complaints on all cars.
