Help the federal gov’t trim the pork!

Help The Blogosphere Cut The Budget Fat!We know the costs of the relief and rebuilding efforts on the Gulf Coast as a result of Hurricane Katrina are going to go into the billions ($200B and probably more).   The President has said that taxes will not be raised in order to pay for the rebuilding but instead that Congress will have to take a long hard look at the budget and start trimming some pork.   This was especially interesting, considering that just a couple of days prior to the President saying that, House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-LaLa Land) declared an "ongoing victory" in Congress in terms of cutting fat in the federal budget.

You and I both know that’s hogwash.  Now, more than ever, fiscal responsiblity needs to be restored in Washington.  Let’s do our part! N.Z. Bear at the Truth Laid Bear site has set up a page where you can help identify pork that you think Congress should cut out of the budget.  I urge you to visit it and make your voice heard!  Read more about Porkbusters here, but remember, you don’t have to be a blogger to join in!  I’ll post my pork items later today.  How do you find the pork?
