Hurricane Sandy and Supplemental Funding Bill
H.R. 152 - Roll Call 23
Liberty for All's PositionIt is irresponsible and morally wrong to politicize the tragedy of Hurricane Sandy to shoehorn spending for other projects. It is wrong to add to the deficit under the guise of an emergency in order to take resources from hardworking families and transfer them to unaccountable contractors and bureaucrats. The bill provides more than was requested by numerous agencies and is fiscally irresponsible at a time we should be tightening our belts, not gorging ourselves on more pork barrel spending.
