Re "Balking at disaster relief, House fails to invest in flood protection" (Editorials, Jan. 6): Did The Bee's editorial board get the irony of bemoaning the Republicans lack of support for the $51 million supposed Super Storm Sandy disaster relief under a cartoon making fun of the pork in the budget agreement?
There was about $21 million of funding for projects outside the two states suffering the storm damage. That is right, pork, like $336 million to Amtrak, $150 million for Alaskan fisheries, $4 million to the Kennedy Space Center, $4 million to purchase federal vehicles. Do I need to go on? Congratulations for the juxtaposition.
