    Why?

    He's not in congress.

    You could blame him if he refused to ever sign the legislation they send to the hill but they do nothing. NOTHING. They work three days a week and filibuster from the golf course.

    Blaming Obama is a pile of partisan crap.

    LOL

    My point is that those states sending the biggest "fiscal conservatives" to Washington are also those states that are most reliant upon the federal government.

    I would be more than happy to cut them loose from the fiscal umbilical cord. Those states would never, ever be self-supporting in the modern sense.

    It is more than people losing their homes and their "stuff'

    It is about losing an entire community. Roads, bridges, schools, water systems an entire infrastructure

    Private charities are not set up to replace these things. Neither are local communities. That is why we rely on Federal aid in these national disasters. They are too big to solve at the local level

    Do you mean like jumping in and stating the NWS called Sandy a storm, rather than a hurricane, when it hit New Jersey's shore? There's a difference between a $500 deductible, and a $7,000 deductible. Let's not even get into those people who live in Hudson County, who were overwhelmed with water. But if you want to suck the ass of the insurance companies, here's the place to do it.

    How about one of you guys just answer off the top of your head. There must be some reason that you are so certain the bill contained "pork"? I'm guessing that it is because you know your subject well and you wouldn't dream of just making up some crap and posting it.

    Am I wrong?

    it was a loser move.
