I guess I'm confused about the thread's direction. Is this a case where Republican states got some pork, and the Dems are at fault for supporting it? Or is this a case where House GOP is to be commended for protesting pork of all kinds?

Question is this. Why is there so much added to a bill for Hurricane Sandy relief? Why not split it into several bills to be weighed on their own merit?

I don't view this issue as partisan, I view it as an arrogant display of spending right after Fiscal Cliff talks, and a coming debt ceiling. Not to mention, the tax credits and other pork attached to the fiscal cliff detail.
