Sen. Kyl on the Porked-up Sandy Relief Bill: "Can I verbalize that stinky look on my face?"

The Senate is rushing through a Sandy relief package, but, as is usually the case with "emergency" bills, they're larding it up with pet projects that aren't related to the Sandy disaster. Senator Kyl is not impressed:

“At $60 billion? In this time when we’re trying to solve the deficit problem? Can I verbalize that stinky look on my face?” Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) said Friday. “I can’t predict what my colleagues will do. But that’s an awful big bite to swallow when the amount of money that’s set aside for this is about $5 billion and they’re asking for $60 billion.”

The Club for Growth announced yesterday that they would score a vote for the Sandy package negatively in their end-of-year scorecard, which will hopefully make Republican members think twice about supporting it.

Of course, Democrats started moaning that Sandy relief is needed immediately, with no time to debate silly things like $150 million in fisheries disaster recovery in Alaska, Mississippi, and American Samoa; $56.8 million for charting the debris from last year's Japanese tsunami; $41 million for eight military bases including Guantanamo Bay; $100 million for the federal Head Start day care program; $188 million for new Amtrak lines (not repair, whole new lines); and $4 million for the Kennedy Space Center.

So, what's the rush? FEMA still has $5 billion in disaster relief funds that are expected to last until March.

Update: Senate GOP launches #ShadySandySpending. Lotta spending I missed. Check it out. Retweet.

3 Appeal to emotions. Mean Republicans want to make the people impacted by Sandy shiver in the cold. And thus they attach every pet project they can think of to it, Christmas tree it, because no one would dare vote against it. Typical of DC.

Then there is the truly audacious $17 billion in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, an embarrassingly transparent slush fund—also included in previous emergency bills—that states can use as they wish.

Of this amount, $2 billion to mitigate future risks, not existing damage. The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development is required, under the Senate bill, to ensure a “minimum award” of CDBG funds to all the states affected by the hurricane. Get the picture?

122 I got to see some areas over the weekend that were hit by sandy. I can't even describe it. It looks like the borg was there. The debris Piles almost qualified as small land fills. Whole areas are just gone, like a huge ass sand parking lot. Most of them were primary residences, not rich people vacation houses, and not all were in rich areas. There was a time where houses in some of the shore areas went really cheap, so average income people moved there.

What pisses me off, is a few of the areas that actually survived did so because of tall sand dunes that were put in place, and ironically these towns were some of the well off ones who were being sued by what you would call rich elite scumbags because their million dollar view was being messed up by the dunes. The rest of the areas got wiped out, and they weren't rich at all.
