Porkbusters: Curbing Washington's Wasteful Ways

I support the Fiscal Watch Team Offset Package. Here at The Education Wonks, we think that it's high-time that our elected officials in Washington learned to spend the people's money responsibly.

Some of us taxpayers can well remember when the Republican Party was the party of financial responsibility and governmental restraint. Nowadays, the G.O.P. seems to be the purveyor of runaway pork-barrel projects such as we illustrated in our two posts,
Alaskan Pork Chops and the education-related FEMA Is A Synonym For PORK.

Learn more about this effort
over at The Truth Laid Bear's "Porkbusters." See a map that shows those members of the United States Senate who've announced their support (as well as those opposing it) for the plan right here.
