Another bill more pork and simply wasting my tax dollars. The insurance companies say the cost of Sandy is $20,000,000,000 yet our woeful Congress led by Schumer, Reid, Pelosi all leap to another $45,000,0000,000 to the bill just because it is a "crisis" and they think no one will see them. Obama and "crises" go hand in hand down the road to bankruptcy. Tra la la.

We are broke!!! Why does Congress think we can continue to borrow money we have been doing for the past decade? I live within my means, why can't the country. Our debt is so high we will never be able to pay it off let alone make a serious effort to reduce it if we keep coming up with ways to spend. No new spending should be allowed without a reduction in an existing program!

Disasters are terrible but is it a Government responsibility? Minot ND was flooded and what did Government do? Provided a one time grant to those that lose everything $30,200 per house. Government didn't cause the flood but did HELP those 3100 households which was great, my aunt was one of them. Why does the eastern seaboard want more than that? Government isn't our savior to return everything back to normal. The BILLIONS requested go way beyond.

Both parties, the liberal Democrats more than the Republicans, have found the cookie jar has a supposed endless supply of cookies. And if WE can't keep it refilled, our children and grandchildren can try to keep it full enough for our socialist leaning politicians.

30,000 Veterans Died Waiting for VA Action,This doesn’t hold a candle to

the magnitude of atrocity that has befallen Blue Water Navy Vietnam veterans.

In 2002, the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA/VA) Compensation Division rescinded the

health care and compensation benefits of certain Vietnam veterans. Originally, full benefits for

herbicide poisoning were granted to all Vietnam veterans who served within the Theater of

Combat by the Agent Orange Act of 1991.Left alone in the gutter. Of all the sins of Vietnam that this country is guilty of, this one is the most

disgraceful. Our Blue Water Navy Vietnam veterans are victims in a double sense. Their number

needs to be added to the victims of VA neglect and mismanagement that have been brought to

this country’s attention in the recent months.”
