    That 2 Billion would cover half a day of BarryCare.

    A rider on the defict bill happened to benefit Kentucky, what a coincidence.

    I’m sure Kentucky Senator Rand Paul will introduce legislation to give the pork back. He’s a man of principle, right? Right?

    the amount in the entire food stamp program is way less than the farm subsidies and every dime of the food stamps gets recirculated. ah, who gives a rat’s ass, anymore? they are all crooks in both parties

    So did mcconnell refuse the money? I didn’t think so.

    I have been thinking, the guy was doing his job. It is his job to bring it home. He is to look out for his state. If the rest in the Senate were doing their job during the shut down maybe they would have caught this. But Harry Reid was to busy towing the party line to Obama’s dictates.

    Be hard to vote mcconnell out when he’s brought 2 billion into the state.

    Really? Really? His job is glom onto as much money as possible for his state? Sheesh, talk about your leaches, 47% and people taking all that Free Stuff. They know because they are the ones doing it, at the expense of the rest of us. What a bunch of hypocrites.

    he does bring home pork. the way he brings back pork is questionable. wonder if other conservatives who rant against gov’t spending bring pork home to their districts and states.

    Mitch set the rules for the next round.. slip your pet pork in at the last moment. You would have thought at least ONE would stand on principal and stop this nonsense.

    I don’t support McConnell, however I wouldn’t exactly call the funding of a dam to be kickback. The sad part is not a “corrupt politician” The sad part is that critical infrastructure such as dams arn’t getting funding as

    A) it is a safety hazard
    B) it would produce jobs to fix / build a new one
    C) it would increase real estate value or atleast allow real estate to sell.

    Considering that the 700 Bn is the initial fee after which point it falls to private that would be incorrect. If one hypothesized that the earth will be here another 4 Bn years with humans on it and ACA in place one could just as easy say it came to less than 20$ per year for ACA. Or in a more realistic context of about 40 years the total cost comes to about 20 Bn per year

    I don’t exactly “support” him either. I am not in the state of KY. I am just pointing out that if the Senate had been doing their job in the 1st place maybe it would not have happened. The senates job is to represent their state. Harry Reid and the other Democrazies did not. They played partisan politics at the best. They took their marching orders from Obama and did not look out for the welfare of the States. If they did they might have passed or even voted on a few bills during the shut down. If so, the simplified bills would not have had this pork inthem and it would have been easier to spot. Shoot if they were doing the job the might have been able to vote on this just one item. Instead Mich took advantage of all the hoopla and mayham and just like the vote on Obamacare, slipped it in at the midnight hour.
