PORK PARTY! Obama Crams Hurricane Sandy Aid Bill With Wasteful Unrelated Spending

| December 17, 2012

 

Hurricane Sandy storm victims suffer as $60 billion aid plan gets porked up

WASHINGTON — President Obama’s $60.4 billion request for Hurricane Sandy relief has morphed into a huge Christmas stocking of goodies for federal agencies and even the state of Alaska, The Post has learned.

The pork-barrel feast includes more than $8 million to buy cars and equipment for the Homeland Security and Justice departments. It also includes a whopping $150 million for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to dole out to fisheries in Alaska and $2 million for the Smithsonian Institution to repair museum roofs in DC.

An eye-popping $13 billion would go to “mitigation” projects to prepare for future storms.

Other big-ticket items in the bill include $207 million for the VA Manhattan Medical Center; $41 million to fix up eight military bases along the storm’s path, including Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; $4 million for repairs at Kennedy Space Center in Florida; $3.3 million for the Plum Island Animal Disease Center and $1.1 million to repair national cemeteries.

Budget watchdogs have dubbed the 94-page emergency-spending bill “Sandy Scam.”

Matt Mayer of the conservative Heritage Foundation slammed the request as an “enormous Christmas gift worth of stuff.” “The funding here should be focused on helping the community and the people, not replacing federal assets or federal items,” he said.

Republican lawmakers say the lack of details and justifications for the spending will delay approval until after Christmas, while they analyze and document what spending is “appropriate.”

“To throw out a number this large without in-depth analysis and formal request detailing the basis for it I think is premature and I wouldn’t support that,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.).

Gov. Cuomo yesterday warned Congress not to hold up the money.

“There is no Plan B,” declared Cuomo at a press conference at the governor’s office in Manhattan, where he was joined by business and union leaders.

Mayor Bloomberg, however, called for careful scrutiny of the federal spending.

“You would think they’d want to ask questions before they give away the public’s money,” the mayor said on his radio program. source – NY Post

  1. Chris Christie got his payday for buddying up to Obama.

  2. Madmath1 says:

    My God! I thought my Ex-wife was an overspending spend thrift.

  3. friend of God says:

    That’s great!!!…helping the victims who lost so much….Chris Christy although you are a republican ….your ability to work with a person whom you don’t see eye to eye with in favor of the people says a lot about you.. but I just want to know…you pissed of all the rush Limbaugh worshipers…As the NTEB broke down some of the spending what part seems wasteful…well I guess it would seem wasteful coming from president Barack Obama …especially if YOU was not affected by the storm…people are suffering…and all you care about how much money is being spent…as if this is the first president to waste money in some form or another….I’m quite sure the government has been enjoying payday for awhile

  4. This is the first president to double the national debt in one term.America is broke. I do not worship Rush Limbaugh…..I worship Jesus Christ

  5. Just looked around this website and read most comments. I realized Friend of God is also friend of Obama. I’m not interested in debating a liberal. Time is too short.

  6. friend of God says:

    Your are correct…time is too short…besides my comments are not up for debate….friend of Obama, well if that’s what you want to call it…just because I do not agree with every article that nteb post up dosent mean I in favor of Obama actions…is he making a lot of mistakes?..yes….Will he make more?…yes….I just see partiality and hate from many peoples comments….could it race I don’t know…but I have never seen a. president get ridicule for every single thing he do….even the so-called good deeds get shot down as a fluke. Many people said they want him to fail….I know you heard him them say it… So if he’s start failings or I guess he is already failing. Then don’t complain about the debt,gun control and gay mariage …because thats all revolving around him failing. So now that he is failing because most people want him to..this is what we get..at the end of the day…I put Jesus Christ ways above all.
    Regardless of anybody opinions
