Hurricane Sandy Relief for Alaska?

Cut the Pork

Wouldn't you think that given our financial situation, Congress would act a little more responsibly and cut back on the pet projects and earmarks? Apparently not. 

In response to Hurricane Sandy, the U.S. Senate passed a $60.4 billion relief bill. This would be more than reasonable if there was an ounce of accountability and it was not loaded down with pork.

In fact, the bill includes money to for fixes on museum roofs and the Kennedy Space Center, $3.3 million for the Plum Island Animal Disease Center, and even $150 million for fishery disasters as far away as Alaska!

The pork in this well-intended bill is concerning yet unsurprising, prompting The Club for Growth to call it a "textbook response by Congress."

This t
ype of reckless spending MUST end, and pork-filled bills are clear violations of the Contract From America. The signers of the Contract must recognize that WE ARE paying attention and WE WILL hold them accountable if the government won't.

Tea Party conservatives like ourselves recognize that government spending is beyond out of control and it has become an addiction in Washington DC. To make it worse, lawmakers try to hide their pet projects by burying them in unrelated bills, such as this one that was intended for Hurricane Sandy victims!

Together with out teams of activist
s in DC and across the country, we plan on leveraging the power of the Contract to stop this spending spree in the middle of a fiscal crisis!

This addiction has only one responsible cure: quitting cold turkey. Donate today and help us tell Congress to stop the earmarks and pork immediately before we get driven deeper and deeper in debt!
