Default Smell the Pork

This $#!+ really get's under my skin. What exactly do all these things have to do with emergency spending for Iraq? I hope Bush finally pulls out the veto stamp for this one.

"Although the coming vote is on a spending bill that began as a $93.4 billion request by Bush, it has grown into a $124.1 billion bill."

"To attract other supporters, Pelosi and her lieutenants bulked up the supplemental with special interest add-ons: $735 million for child health insurance, $400 million in energy assistance payments for the poor, $2.9 billion for hurricane repairs along the Gulf Coast, $2.5 billion for homeland security and $1 billion for flu epidemic preparations"

$1B for Flu preparations? WHAT!!

Not to mention the "time table" for surrender added to the bill.

Our government is broken.
