Political: Sandy Relief Bill
Go read the actual bill as presented as H.R. 1 and review some of the fund allocations, in addition to the time frames they have to spend these monies.
The thing that bothers me more than anything is the vacuous time frames, and the sub-allocations of funds destined specifically toward Sandy relief. While I won't comment on the actual figures dedicated specifically to Sandy relief, I do have an issue with the (by my calculations) roughly 45% additional funds that are just kind of "out there" for similar events in the future. Seems to me like a great number of federal agencies are getting their budgets funded through the back door, and yet again -- a good crisis isn't going to go to waste.
Seriously -- please read, skim, scan...tell me if I'm off base here? Might explain why people wouldn't vote for it in it's current state. I'm just sayin'...

The bill should have to come to the floor so all the garbage could have been stripped, amended, or passed
Boehner is an idiot!

I saw a clip where Christie had flem on the corners of his mouth when he was talking yesterday from being so pissed off about NO HELP from Congress.
He left 4 messages for Boner and never got a call back. Maybe Boner should go F himself.
I guess it doesnt really matter if any President shows up in a timely fashion after a disaster. Its just lip service anyways.
