GOP Congressman Proposed Cuts In Federal Spending To Pay For Katrina. Why is he in trouble with other GOP members.

Rep. Mike Pence, a 46-year-old former radio talk show host from eastern Indiana serving his third term in Congress, is currently chairman of the conservative Republican Study Committee (RSC). He has tried hard to cooperate with the regular House Republican leadership rather than confront it. So, he could not have been happy last Tuesday when he found himself in a closed-door fight, with GOP leaders as the inquisitors and Pence as the heretic. Robert Novak has the rest of the story in this column.

Rep. Mike Pence seems to be one of the few Conservative Republicans left. We should show support and reward this kind of behavior.
