Who Ya Gonna Call....Porkbusters!!!

A new website has been started with the purpose of getting the pork out of Congress. Of course it is entitled, Porkbusters.

Their current project is to find out which Senator is putting a secret hold on S. 2590. All this bill would require is that Congress build a website that would include nearly every recipient of federal funding. You would think Congress would be glad to highlight all the "help" they give to the populace wouldn't you? Well someone in the Senate is putting a hold on the bill from coming to the floor for a vote and Porkbusters as well as several others are trying to find out who.

Go to the site...call your Senators...and if they deny being the super secret holder of the bill, then let Porkbusters know, so they can move them from the Suspects list to the In The Clear list.

Hi Shane!

If you are into cutting out the pork, you should check out the group my husband works for- Americans For Prosperity. (www.americansforprosperity.org) They have been running a bus tour across the country visiting lots of the earmarks and pork spending projects (The Ending Earmarks Express). They've gotten GREAT response to it so far.

Hey Emily...good to hear from ya. Americans For Prosperity is one of the groups listed as other orgs going after pork on the Porkbusters site. More big guns the better!!! That is a great idea with the bus tour.

To me it's just common sense to get rid of the pork. It shouldn't even be a democratic or Republican issue. But you've got a bunch of Washington people who have gotten greedy and know that when they give pork for their state it gets them re-elected. Why do you think Robert Byrd keeps getting re-elected. Its not for his smarts!!
