Fight for the Cause!

Okay, I'm in on this too:

Instapundit, Coyote Blog, and KipEsquire are also fighting for pork reduction as a way to pay for Katrina relief.

Of course you can't discuss pork without mentioning the Citizen's Against Government
's invaluable contribution to the cause. Here's some suggestions they have for elimination this year:

Prime Cuts features some long-standing proposals, such as terminating Community Development Block Grants (saving $24.7 billion over five years), eliminating the White House’s National Youth Anti-drug Media Campaign (saving $1 billion over five years), and eliminating the Advanced Technology Program (saving $750 million over five years).
New recommendations include eliminating two narcissistic education scholarship programs that would save $205 million over five years: the B.J. Stupak Olympic Scholarship Program and the Robert C. Byrd Honors Scholarship Program.

The Cato Institute also has some suggestions.
