From Grassfire.org

Senator Jim DeMint has just thrown down the gauntlet to his congressional peers, and he needs our help! In an effort to force a vote on a year-long moratorium on
congressional earmarks, Sen. DeMint will offer an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2009 Budget Resolution. In other words, this vote will separate the wheat from the chaff--those who are serious about earmark reform and those who aren't.
The most substantive vote of the year

The above quote came from the Senator's communication director,just before he asked us to help rattle congressional cages over the next two weeks leading up to this vote.

This is a tremendous opportunity for you and I to play a major roll in bringing about a close end to the corrupt nature of congressional earmarks!
