High Cost of Pork

More Congressional hypocrisy for spending cuts (see link below).
Why do the majority of Americans support Tax Reform?  Because that equates in their simplistic logic. That SOMEBODY ELSE will pay the bills, certainly not them. 

Don’t get caught up in all the finger pointing as to who is “not leading.” Its more hypocrisy from a Congress that totally lacks such leadership within its ranks.  It is Congress that decides what gets spent and on what.  It is their responsibility ALONE to rein in that out of control spending.

Why is Boehner having such difficulty controlling his caucus?  The answer is simple.  The House Republicans have agreed not to “buy votes” with earmarks and other forms of pork.  It’s a discipline that the Senate Democrats have not yet seemed to have learned.  The Senate’s Sandy Bill is reported to have 35% pork!
