In response to this effort at Porkbusters, I called Georgia Senator Saxby Chamliss’ D.C. office and asked if he had put a hold on S.2590. I was told by one of his aids that Mr. Chambliss is a co-sponsor of the bill and did not initiate a hold. S.2590 needs to be passed. Please contact your state Senator and help expose those who are attempting to block it.
Saxby Chambliss’ office gave me a, “No senator would answer that question, I mean, come on, it’s a secret.” I replied that “Johnny Isakson’s office gave an on the record ‘No’; is Senator Chambliss willing to state publicly that he is not the mystery senator?” The answer was a “No, he will not state either he is or is not.” I stated my displeasure at his wishy-washiness, thanked the staffer, and hung up.
