    At least that was the promise. I haven't seen one word about it since the beginning of the month.

    Second test of the 113th House. They passed the $9.7B the 4th. Let's see if they can get 2 for 2.

    The relief bills are FULL of pork.

    Why can't congress pass a fucking bill on its own merits instead of bribing each other with OUR tax dollars...

    Less than 1/2 of 1% is "loaded with pork"? It has no more "pork" than the Katrina bill that was passed in 2005.

    Any amount is too much. And it doesn't matter what party does it or for how long they've been doing it. It's part of the reason were in such debt.

    How much pork is there? I've seen several threads on the issue, but I haven't seen any real figures.
