Sandy's Pork Party

No, its not a reality show challenger to Honey Boo Boo ...

Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) is well known to those of us in North Texas.  He is a fiscal tornado, and is one of the few in Washington (in either party) who is actually serious about getting our country's money mess addressed.

This is a link to an OpEd he did in the Washington Times about the recent $50 billion Sandy Emergency Relief Bill that was shoved through Congress.  This is well worth a read - you will be shocked at how our tax money has been stolen for pork projects that have absolutely nothing to do with storm recovery.  It is instructional to read this, and understand that it is not out of the norm for Washington - this is how everything works, how they continually steal our money for their pet projects and special interests.  Both sides do it.  It is heinous, it accounts for a tremendous amount of government waste, and is a huge factor in our debt crisis.

Shit like this has to stop.

Kudos for Jeb.  For those of you in other parts of the country, keep an eye on this guy - he may be one of the small group of people in Washington who will save our country from itself.
