And these FOOLS in Congress wonder why their approval rating is beyond recognition.
If you want to know how much politicians are shamelessly addicted to government pork, just look at Rep. Peter King who is STILL sore from Ted Cruz voting against a bill purportedly for Sandy relief, but chock full of gov’t handouts.
Ted Cruz & Texas cohorts voted vs NY/NJ aid after Sandy but I’ll vote 4 Harvey aid. NY wont abandon Texas. 1 bad turn doesnt deserve another

Emergency relief for the families who are suffering from this natural disaster should not be used as a Christmas tree for billions in unrelated spending, including projects such as Smithsonian repairs, upgrades to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration airplanes, and more funding for Head Start.
Two thirds of this spending is not remotely “emergency”; the Congressional Budget Office estimates that only 30% of the authorized funds would be spent in the next 20 months, and over a billion dollars will be spent as late as 2021.
