I support the Fiscal Watch Team Offset Package

For information on the Fiscal Watch Team Offset Package, check out the PorkBusters blog at The Truth Laid Bear.

This offset package is supported by Senators John McCain(R-AZ), Sam Brownback (R-KS), Mark Dayton (D-MN), John Ensign (R-NV), John E. Sununu (R-NH), Judd Gregg (R-NH), Tom Coburn (R-OK), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Jim DeMint (R-SC). Senators opposing the package are: Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Barack Obama (D-IL), John Kerry (D-MA), Edward Kennedy (D-MA), John Warner (R-VA). This package has been proposed to offset the costs of the devastating hurricanes on the gulf coast. It will save American taxpayers close to $130 billion over a two year period. I see the need for PorkBusters for more than the hurricane relief. I believe we will need to keep trimming the fat for a while to deal with the multiple problems we are faced with - primarily the Global War on Terrorism. Check out the details fo the offset package and see if supporting this grassroots effort is something you would like to put your blog to.
