So here we go again... Big headlines, Speaker of the House refuses to put the Senate bill for "Sandy" relief to a House vote, delaying much needed funds.... BUT, what the headlines fail to mention is the Senate version of the bill ads 100s of MILLIONS of dollars of EARMARKS for OTHER purposes... The Speaker wants the Senate bill to DIE with the 112th Congress, and let the 113th Congress pass a CLEAN bill for the Sandy relief effort.... The Speaker did agree to vote/pass 9 billion, a PART of the Senate bill without earmarks for other projects.... Once again it is the SENATE fucking things up and blaming the House for the delay..... "Never let a crisis go to waste"..... Fucking Harry Hitler.....

I'm not sure if I got all the zeros in place correctly but according to my math, This 60 billion bill would be enough to give every person in America $171,000.00. That is at a rough population 350 million. Is my calculator correct?

$171.42857

Population is probably closer to 315 million as July 2011 it was 311 million.

This is $190.476 a person.

Yeah you off a wee bit. The entire national debt of 16 TRILLION only comes to slightly over 52,000.00 per person. ONLY:shock:

Now if you divide it up into people that actually pay taxes, it comes to 145,000.00. And there lies the rub. IF and thats a HUGE IF, the freeloaders no longer recieved handouts, thats a HUGE cut into the debt, and IF they were to actually pay taxes, that would be a double throwdown plus.
Don't hold you breath.

It's $683.37 when taking into account people who filed taxes that paid more than $1.

The news this morning was talking about all the PORK in the new fiscal cliff bill and seemed rather outraged by it all. I wasnt surprised that many special interest groups were helped at the cost of us tax payers.

I didnt hear any discussions about the hurrican relief bill.

I keep on seeing them call this a "super storm"... So Katrina was not "super"?

New math...

Now the "new math" of the bill looks as though 1/2, yeah ONE HALF of the 60 BILLION dollar "Sandy" relief had NOTHING to do with "short term" relief for the actual victims of Sandy.... There is a portion of the pork barreled remaining 30 BILLION that deals with "long term" recovery of the entire area. That would've included rebuilding the amusement park, among other things that really aren't "life threatening"... I fail to see how the Senate would even consider the "fisheries" in Alaska and Colorado as part of a storm relief package.... And of course a new roof on the Smithsonian is of paramount importance when it comes to wasting taxpayer money the BROKE ASS gov't doesn't have.... Once again, "you can't make this stuff up", it would be too outrageous, no one would believe it.... I guess blaming BUSH is falling on deaf ears by now, so once again, load a Senate bill up with CRAP and blame the House for using COMMON SENSE......
