but it does make sense. Maybe, just maybe, Boehner is NOT as stupid as some seem to think he is.

Subject: Under the Reign of Fools - And they are us!

So this is why Speaker of the House John Boehner would not sign off on
the $51 BILLION relief bill for Hurricane Sandy and Chris Christie made a
big stink over it........turns out Boehner knew what he was doing......

If you think the government doesn't have a spending problem, just
check the items added to the Hurricane Sandy Relief bill sent by the
Senate to the House. Do any of them have any relation to the hurricane?

$4 million for the Kennedy Space Center .
$8 million to buy cars and equipment for the Homeland Security and
Justice departments.
$20 million for a nationwide "Water Resources Priorities Study".
$41 million for eight military bases including Guantanamo Bay .
$56.8 million for charting the debris from last year's Japanese tsunami.
$58.8 million for forest restoration on private land.
$100 million for the federal Head Start day care program.
$150 million in funding for Alaskan fisheries.
$188 million for new Amtrak lines (not repair, whole new lines).
$197 million "to. protect coastal ecosystems and habitat impacted by Hurricane Sandy."
$5.3 billion to the Army Corps of Engineers (that's more than their
annual budget).
$10.78 billion for public transportation, most of which is allocated
to future construction and improvements, not disaster relief.
$13 billion would go to "mitigation" projects to prepare for future storms.
$17 billion for wasteful Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), a
program that has become notorious for its use as a backdoor earmark program.
How does any of this have anything to do with immediate emergency
relief for the victims of Hurricane Sandy?

Harry Reid passed this through the Senate then sent them all home, so
that the House couldn't send it back in time to remove the pork. All
they could do was vote it down. These Senators don't care about the
victims of Sandy , it's all just business as usual.

Works just like trite tag lines (such as "LOW INFORMATION VOTERS"). But the nit wits fall for it every time.

It doesn't matter, I suppose. But the more Republicans resort to this moronic crap the farther I get from that party.

I have often said one of the problems with this country is that people need to shoot enough politicians from time to time just to keep the rest of them honest
