Agreed. And don't blame Christie for wanting legislation loaded with pork. He's not asking for the pork, he just wants the funding to help his constituency. If anything, it's a sick joke that politicians would use relief money for political gain. How can anyone even dream of loading this kind of bill up with either pork or pet political initiatives, while people are dying, trying to rebuild their lives, and some still without power?
