A great example of the spending is the Hurricane Sandy relief bill that is in excess of 60 billion dollars. Barely half goes to actual victims of Hurricane Sandy. Some goes to Guantanamo Bay, some to Alaska, some to NASA,,,, If you need money for these other causes, ask for it, don't hide it inside of something that is emotionally charged knowing that the media will strictly report that the horrible don't care about New York and New Jersey.
Boehner promised to bring that bill to a vote before the session of Congress ended, but ended up breaking that promise, in part because of all the excess spending you mentioned. Would you rather him have kept his promise?
