This is unreal. You didn't see this on ABC,CBS or NBC.
I still can’t believe we have been so
This is a total
So this is why Speaker of the
House John Boehner would not sign off on the $51 BILLION relief bill for
Hurricane Sandy and Chris Christie made a big stink over it........turns out
Boehner knew what he was doing......
If you think the government doesn't have
a spending problem, just check the items added to the Hurricane Sandy Relief
bill sent by the Senate to the House. Do any of them have any relation to the
$4 million for the Kennedy Space Center .
$8 million to buy
cars and equipment for the Homeland Security and Justice departments.
million for a nationwide "Water Resources Priorities Study".
$41 million for
eight military bases including Guantanamo Bay .
$56.8 million for charting
the debris from last year's Japanese tsunami.
$58.8 million for forest
restoration on private land.
$100 million for the federal Head Start day care
$150 million in funding for Alaskan fisheries.
$188 million for
new Amtrak lines (not repair, whole new lines).
$197 million "to. protect
coastal ecosystems and habitat impacted by Hurricane Sandy."
to the Army Corps of Engineers (that's more than their annual
$10.78 billion for public transportation, most of which is
allocated to future construction and improvements, not disaster relief.
billion would go to "mitigation" projects to prepare for future storms.
billion for wasteful Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), a program that
has become notorious for its use as a backdoor earmark program.
How does any
of this have anything to do with immediate emergency relief for the victims of
Harry Reid passed this through the Senate then sent
them all home, so that the House couldn't send it back in time to remove the
pork. All they could do was vote it down. These Senators don't care about the
victims of Sandy , it's all just business as usual.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious
than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince
of the fools should not blind.
