CALL YOUR SENATOR: Porked-up Sandy Relief Bill Vote is Imminent

Early in the week I wrote about the bloated Sandy relief bill working its way through the Senate. It'll be up for a vote this afternoon, but before that it'll need sixty votes for cloture. To get GOP crossovers, the Democrats have larded up the bill with extra spending items having nothing to do with Sandy.

A reminder of what's in the bill:

$5.3B to Army Corps of Engineers (that's more than their annual budget).
$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).
$20 million for a nationwide "Water Resources Priorities Study".
$4 million for the Kennedy Space Center.

ABC News obtained a marked-up version of the bill that's been edited by hand to reflect the attempt to get Republican votes.

Both the Club for Growth and Heritage Action are urging Senators to vote against the bill and promising to include it in their annual "scorecard" of votes. I hadn't noticed the Corps of Engineers shenanigans until Heritage Action pointed it out:

For example, of the $5.35 billion requested for the Corps of Engineers, just $1.838 billion – or 34% – is for “disaster recovery.” The remaining $3.512 billion is for mitigation efforts, which the Obama administration request says would be used to address “impacts associated with a changing climate.”

According to Politico, that CoE pork is directed at GOP senators in Louisiana and North Dakota. You can guess that the "fisheries relief" is to woo Senators from Mississippi and Alaska. If the Dems get those votes, the bill will pass.

If you're the type to call or email your Senator, now's the time. This will be voted on today, probably around 2pm.

Of course we all agree the bill is unmitigated bullshit, and a disaster for a nation that has already been run out of money by Choom Boy and his co-conspirators.

What we don't agree on is what we can do about it. The answer -- with apologies to Malor --is: Not. A. Friggin'. Thing.

The time when either a) what's good for the country or b) the wishes of its citizens have any effect on what D.C. does are long gone.

For all the good it will do, we could ask Santa to bring us a new government. Failing him, we could apply to the Easter Bunny.

Now it's a fookin swamp, courtesy of the Army Corps of Engineers.

they went around ChesCo telling private property owners they could no longer have any dams. At least three pretty ponds near me are now swamps. Oh and they flood the road now more too.

That's a hell of a lot of extra money for annoying people and making things ugly, Army Corps of Engineers! Happy Festivus!

Someone in what passes for leadership of the Republican Party or Conservative movement really needs to take a stand against omnibus bills. Bills should be targeted and unified, not big bloated free-for-alls.


In the real world, if two people want the last of something, either they share or one or both go(es) without. In Congress, both get what they want and someone else gets a few million dollars too for no reason.

Not a word about what the money in the bill is actually going to go for.

148 138,

You're catching on.

Gabe's interest isn't conservatism or the GOP.

It's advancing an agenda that hurts those who don't support sodomy. So on issues that hurt the GOP and conservativism (like going with Boheners stupidity on plan b) he goes against it, on issues that help the GOP (like passing the sandy bill) he suddenly discovers principals.

As with most gay sex advocates, he has only 1 real principle, and once identified, all his other positions make sense and are transparent.

177 Chique,

Not talking about others. Talking about gabe, whose posts, positions, and citing of principals are internally inconsistent in their entirety, with the exception of a single issue that also explains the entirety of his otherwise nonsensical positions.

That's not an ad hominem. I'm not calling him a name, I'm just calling him out as having only 1 real principal. It's to the point where he is spinning like a top (plan b post vs this) to do advance anything that harms conservativism.

Posted by: Hopeless at December 21, 2012 02:19 PM (pQXbd)

178 how is killing Plan B (a symbolic measure anyway since Obama would veto it) "helping conservatism" except in this simplistic "fight harder and feel good about yourself" mentality?

the thing is that while tax increases won't help the economy, this assumption that they'll totally wreck it and lay bare Obama's failures is wishful thinking. Republicans should of course fight against Obama's promotion of this idea that the programs he wants can be entirely funded with an upper-bracket tax increase, but this "NEVER SURRENDER" posture is moronic given the specifics of the situation AND the fact that whether taxes should go up, down or stay the same is totally situation-dependent. i find it extremely weird that some of the same people that want the GOP to throw out certain positions that, even if you think they're wrong, are very deeply felt core convictions, but giving an inch on layered fiscal issues in incredibly unfavorable circumstances consigns you to RINOdom.

210 As with most gay sex advocates, he has only 1 real principle, and once identified, all his other positions make sense and are transparent.

213 That's not an ad hominem. I'm not calling him a name, I'm just
calling him out as having only 1 real principal. It's to the point
where he is spinning like a top (plan b post vs this) to do advance
anything that harms conservativism.


You're a retard.

That's not an ad hominem either. It's a medical diagnoses based on clear and convincing evidence.

214 Hopeless (can't tell if you're some parody) i agree that sometimes a focus on one seemingly unrelated issue can envelop someone's entire worldview, but in this case it seems to be you.

215 Hollowpoint, you're assuming that the majority of laymen can see beyond "Republicans hate Sandy victims."

This isn't a convoluted he-said she-said scenario. The "fiscal cliff" fight can be portrayed that way easily enough, but most people can identify (and agree with) with opposition to wasteful, unrelated spending.

Especially when they're exploiting efforts to help those affected by tragedy.

217 I'm not against bashing co-bloggers since I've advocated to replace DrewM with a monkey but some of you I won't name, hopeless, are kidding yourself if you think your criticism is constructive and not personal ad hominen.

Did you used to do something special in bed onlyaround Christmas?

219 @215. I still think you are giving them too much credit. They only inhale what the media spouts. (Bad metaphor, I know.)

224 The best thing the Federal government could do is get out of the way: Suspend or eliminate the regulations and red tape that impede people from rebuilding, and other from helping.

225 57 billion to track shit floating in the ocean. These people simply hold taxpayers in disdain with crap like this. And sure as shit. It will pass. LIB!

Posted by: Minnfidel at December 21, 2012 03:01 PM (bXdYS)

226 Sorry 57 million . Not billion. Doesn't matter. It's insulting.

227 I'm from California, my senators hang up on Conservative calls.

Posted by: DocBallerPHD at December 21, 2012 03:04 PM (KfsHF)

228 I will personally go track shit floating around in the Pacific for half. 28 million would buy me some nice tech shit and a kickass boat. I can sit on the fantail. Drink a beer and say,,,, ooooh. Lookie there, some shit floating on the sea. Must be from that Tsunami thing. Fish on!!!!! Merry Christmas Ron's and Ronettes.

230 Fuck my senator. Let it burn.

Posted by: In the bunker at December 22, 2012 03:56 AM (R7H3g)

231 They {Senators Reprasentatives} are in for them selves, what are they thinking, well I gues they arn't, Every Bill that is proposed is loaded with PORK/EARMARKS funds that don't exist, but who cares? Well for one thing you all voted to keep the PATHETIC BUNCH in office. We can only blame ourselves. When the work force continues to dwindle the few that remain and STILL WORK will pay for it TAXES, that's inevitable, we will all end up being taxed to make up for these morons spending sprees. I gather our Congressman aren't much different then a few individuals that owe back taxes, over spend on their Credit Cards, then declare Bankruptcy, I think Bankruptcy should be done away with, time to responsible.
