The Republicans held up relief legislation for Sandy which they believed was filled with pork. Apparently, they have identified the pork much to the chagrin and embarrassment of Representative King, and it is being whittled out of the bill as we speak. This is one of those times when you have to give credit to those Republican lawmakers whose eyes detected waste. Once that's removed, expect the bill to move forward and be passed quickly with funds that will be used directly for survivors needing assistance. Now, I don't have a link. I just read this information on another site.It took TEN days for Federal relief to reach hurricane Katrina victims and that was "Dubyah's fault". Hurricane Sandy victims have gone SIXTY SEVEN days without federal relief (on the news this morning)- is this also Bush's fault?
BTW - this has nothing to do with Obama. Lose his name from the discussion on this matter. He can't sign anything until it's put in front of him to sign.
