    I've been searching the internet trying to find out what Senators put those incredible Pork amendments into the Sandy Relief Bill. I found what the pork is and amounts but not the sponsors. Who ever it was, no matter the Party, they ought to be tar'd and feather'd

    Rep. Darrell Issa: ‘NY Senators Packed Sandy Relief Bill with Pork, Then Dared Us Not to Vote on It’

    I'll buy the tar!

    The Bill has/had Obama's name on it and it started in the D-Senate Appropriations Committee. Reid adjourned the Senate immediately after pushing it through and sending it to the House, eliminating the possibility of any after-vote reconciliations.

    In the R controlled congress, there was a standing rule that all attachments has to bear the name of the congressman that sponsored it. In 2007 when the D's took the Senate back, they removed that rule.

    I ordered a rail car of tar....... don't know if we'll have enough?

    The GOP needs to hold very loud press conferences about who put the pork in the bill. Otherwise they will be blamed for not passing it. The GOP really needs to fire their PR department and hire someone better.

    Issa is already shouting from the rooftops. Our US-Pravda will not be there to report it.

    Speaking of Pravda,check out the above web site for Pravda's urgings on US guns. Very enlightening.

    60 minutes reported on the pork attached to the relief bill. They were asking what was the matter with those people (congress) which sure suprised the hell out of me.
