has anyone actually read the article or are we too busy posting funny pictures about this in the sign thread? Cruz opposed the bill for sandy relief because of how much money was being requested that had nothing to do with sandy. So because he was against wasteful and misleading spending, he isn't allowed to ask for valid disaster relief?bucket:Hidden Content

I did read the article. Just about every bill introduced winds up with extra "pork" by the time the vote comes up. Every Senator from every state wants a piece of the pie, because the whole system stinks. I still think Cruz is being hypocritical tho...............

I read the article a few days ago, didn't comment, read it again now and still feel the same way I did before.
Until the bill is seen, it's hard to criticize. While I agree with sluggo that most bills end up with wasted spending somewhere in them, it isn't a hard rule. Until you can quote pork from what is being proposed, this is premature.
Give it time, once actual bills see the light of day, there will be plenty of time to criticize pork (I've only read this article, so I don't know particulars.
One thing I can totally agree with:
