Christie Craving Pork

-Filled Sandy Bill

New Jersey governor Chris Christie, a Republican, blasted Speaker of the House John Boehner for ending the congressional session before voting on the Hurricane Sandy relief bill.

“I called the Speaker four times last night after 11:20 and he did not take my calls,” said Christie, who said Congress had not delivered on the aid needed to clean-up after the hurricane and Boehner had avoided giving him answers as to why. “There’s no reason for me to believe anything they tell me, because they’ve been telling me stuff for weeks. And they didn’t deliver.”

But one of the big objections to the bill was that Senate Democrats had filled it with pork.

In fact, “Democrats expanded the legislation during a mark-up to include not just areas affected by Sandy, but also to provide money for ‘storm events that occurred in 2012 along the Gulf Coast and Atlantic Coast within the boundaries of the North Atlantic and Mississippi Valley divisions of the Corps that were affected by Hurricanes Sandy and Isaac,’” we reported previously.

The expansion of the bill was a way to provide a financial incentive for senators from red states–”two Republicans senators from Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas, and the one Republican senator from Louisiana”–to vote for the bill. “The Sandy kickbacks provide an incentive for those Republicans to vote on the bill,” we wrote.

    And therein lies the problem inherent with politicians – and sadly, humans in general – “I don’t care how much money other people are getting that we can’t afford, as long as I get MINE!

    It is really unfortunate that our government shoves pork into everything. It is glaringly obvious that the pork shoved into the ‘fiscal cliff’ bill was a package just waiting for an opportunity: a bill that absolutely needed to be passed, onto which it could be attached and guaranteed success. A sad, sad state of affairs when every urgent and necessary bill becomes a pork opportunity.

    The headline says it…Krispy Kreme doesn’t care about the BAD pork, as long as he gets HIS pork.

    I hope this fat fuck realizes that he was just a useful photo prop for the Won, and got suckered all the way.

    Keep your chin up (both of them), fatty and wait your turn.
    He must be related to Lou Christie of “Two Faces Have I” fame.
    He may as well join the Democratic party right now and get it over with.

    Nothing more than the chickens coming home to roost, FAT BOY!

    Thanks for being O’BlowMe’s Useful Idiot at election time!! It surely swayed a flock of low information voters – like maybe the “Situation”, or lardywhore Snooki!

    BTW, “-0-” thinks you got a “purdy mouth” – use it to squeal, you fat bastard sellout!!!
