The right-wing "porkbusters" are looking for programs to eliminate in order to pay for the Katrina/Rita disaster, i.e. "offsets." Of course, the usual suspects such as funding for PBS, Amtrak, the National Endowment for the Arts, etc. are at the top of the list.

My question is, where were the "porkbusters" and their search for "offsets" when taxpayers were being asked to pony up $200 billion for rebuilding Iraq?
