Another Ray of Hope on Spending

Via Government Bytes comes this from the president's news conference:

Congress has got other important work to do, starting with our response to the hurricanes Katrina and Rita. We here in Washington have got a vital role to play in the recovery and reconstruction efforts on the Gulf Coast. I have made that clear. I've also made it clear we must do so in a fiscally responsible way. Congress needs to pay for as much of the hurricane relief as possible by cutting spending. I'll work with members of Congress to identify offsets and to free up money for the reconstruction efforts.

I will ask them to make even deeper reductions in the mandatory spending programs than are already planned.

As Congress completes action on the 2006 appropriations bills, I call on members to make real cuts in nonsecurity spending.

He needs to follow these "calls" up with action.
