    Hopefully this gives many of the big donors pause to think the next time they think about giving to the GOP

    Pork Holding Up Senate Sandy Relief Bill Funneled Into The Troughs Of GOP Deficit Hawks? You Betcha.

    Pork Holding Up Senate Sandy Relief Bill Funneled Into The Troughs Of GOP Deficit Hawks? You Betcha. - Forbes


    Now before anyone starts throwing stones at the GOP over this they need to look at their own DNC "glass house hypocrisy". You might want to start with a detailed research into Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Chuck Schumers corporate relations.
    Yup politics as usual.

    In fairness to Boehner, they didn't exactly "scorn" the Hurricane Sandy victims. From what I heard, Boehner had a hard enough time getting his party behind him on a "fiscal cliff" vote, he didn't want to force a vote on any other spending - but he did make the Hurricane Sandy bill the first item of the new Congress. I don't think that is really so bad.

    I am wondering just exactly where in the constitution it is the responsibility of the federal government to dispense charity. I can't find it.

    The leftists LOVE the smell of PORK.

    Every piece of legislation that crosses a Democrat's desk is slathered with BBQ sauce.
