Since the House and the Senate versions of the stimulus package are weighing in at over 1,500 pages, FOX news is asking the FOX Forum audience to help ferret through this albatross of a bill along with station personnel. The House's translation can be accessed at the first listed website and the Senate's at the second. You will need Adobe Acrobat 8 to access the Senate's! No one said your quest would be easy...or cheap.

Back to the "FOX Hunt"! They are challenging Americans to find what is right (or wrong) with the plan. If you have some noteable tidbits just send them to the following email:
firstname.lastname@example.org They will in turn post the most admirable and egregious expenditures stuffed into this bill. Now, I said in my opener that it was time to play FIND THE PORK so I will give you the rules. You may work in teams, but you have to beat the Congressional deadline or forfeit HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of American dollars creating a tax burden on you and future generations. Even video gamers like to get hints from fellow competitors so0000...here is your hint. When you find something you do not like...simultaneously send it to FOX and your Congressional Reps. You may just find the impact delays the passing, long enough for it to be caught by the seemingly evil "Review Chamber" where ripping and shredding and cutting occurs. That means we win!
Note: We can start believing in government again when Congress stops playing games!
May God bless America...and may America deserve it!
