The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 is being held up in the Senate. Actually, there are two bills at gun-point here: [S.2590.IS] and [S.2590.RS].
And just who might be the villains in this case? Why none other than the front-running Big Spenders from Pig Town—
***Sen. Ted “Bridge to Nowhere” Stevens (R-Alaska)
***Sen. Robert “Man, I Just Love that Pork!” Byrd (D-WV)
Stevens and Byrd are the most notorious of the many cannibals on the body politic of this country. Alaska already gets more back than it puts into the federal kitty, er, piggy bank. And is there a bridge, library, or outhouse in West Virginia that has not got Byrd’s name tacked onto it?
That these two oinkers want to prevent the rest of us from knowing what they’re up to is no surprise.
For the rest of us, time to fire up the emails to your
imperial “servants” senators so we can get this particular pig through this here particular python. Just click on the home page of the Library of Congress link above to find your senators.
And be sure to check in with The Porkbusters on a regular basis.
Apologies all around for being so late getting this up.
