Democrats are pig pork spenders. ALL that money should now go to Sandy. Screw Alaska. Democrats just want to line their own pockets with disaster relief money. They should be thrown all be out of the senate.

It takes time for politicians from every state to come up with a shopping list they can tack on to relief funding.

Hundreds of billions for "Defense" but as few cents as possible for Americans in need. That's the corporatist/neocon/Republican agenda, sadly.

"Among expenditures criticized were $150 million to rebuild fisheries, including those in the Gulf Coast and Alaska"

...idiot. Did you even try to find out what the "so-called" pork was.

If you did, and if you were intelligent, you'd have to assume its not a dem demanding the Red states of Alaska, La, Mississippi, and Ala get millions for constituencies they don't represent.

Many of these same repubs were patting themselves on the back when they thought another school in Iraq was painted using funds we borrowed, and gave to Iraq nation-building effort.

Now...when asked to help Americans, they balk.

The current GOP is a hot mess.

Are you stupid...The House controls the nations purse strings.

This has nothing to do with red-tape ONCE THE FUNDS ARE MADE AVAILABLE BY THE HOUSE.

You repub apologist will bend yourselves into a pretzel in order to blame Pres Obama for your own failings.

We don't hear Chris Christie blaming red-tape for this.

Au contraire, he said Pres Obama made the red-tape go away. He's blaming Boehner, republican.

Head back in the sand wingnut. Don't let reality get in your way while doing jamming head firmly in the dirt.

Maybe you should google his speech and photo op that got him the election right before November 6th. You are welcome of course to remain playing the fool, but it's going to be harder to post with any creds if you don't wise up.

Chris Christie is right to blame Boehner. Most people in congress with brains do not like or respect him and that is especially true in northeast Ohio (the best educted area of Ohio, it is the morons down south who put him in office). Boehner is a disgrace who only represents greedy lobbyist interests.

Whne you can prove ONE post a lie, do so. It will be the first time, too.

No surprise that your post is nothing but insults, lies, and threats. It's what makes you the right-winger you are, of course.

Here is a real hoot, your taxes are going up too.

John W. Schoen , NBC News

Taxes are rising, but it could have been more painful.

This is the MSM's way to soften the blow that you were lied to again, when Obama said only the top two percents taxes would go up.

Everyone from 20,000 per year up gets a tax increase. SUPRISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSE!
