Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we’ll be going long and making more calls to Senators and Representatives in opposition to Porkulus, the Obama-Pelosi-Reid omnibus spending bill that passed cloture today. We will have another shot at stopping this behemoth when it comes out of conference, and we need to make sure that we let our elected representatives know exactly what we think of it. We’ll focus today on the health-care aspects of this bill, and how Arlen Specter never discovered that it imposes federal control over what treatments doctors can offer their patients.

Do you want your doctors penalized for trying to save your life? If not, be ready with your phone number and the phone number of your representative, and we’ll hear you tell them exactly what you think of this stinker of a pork bill!

In the second hour, we will broadcast live a teleconference with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) on the stimulus package. Ryan sharply opposes the stimulus, and you can find out why first-hand.

Now you can join the conversation in the chat room! Be sure to register at Ustream to participate in our raucous live-chat sessions. (And if the log-in prompt doesn’t come up in the chat box below, use this link instead.) Jazz Shaw of The Moderate Voice moderates the chat, and he has his Troll Gun Trivia Contest running before the show, for those who get there early — and are registered!
