-- together that Ryan -- wonder why emergency bill would be filled with pork in the first place an -- that's on the I don't always sounds -- are -- denying us.
You you would be more expensive that is any -- as they -- who votes for this knowing full well that a good sound of it isn't gonna get to the people who need.
No absolutely and I mean this is there's as part of the problem with Washington -- You take these bills and they've they've they realize that these bills.
You know public perception they need to get past you know people want to see this past -- and when the public messaging on this.
Why don't we add on all all a little pork all -- little candy for our districts.
And earlier in the day as the sixty billion dollars -- -- stood about 80% of that was pork only about 21% of it was actually going to the victims of the of sandy.
And the amazing thing is to Neil that the -- this an emergency bill.
As -- currently stood only about 15% of that money was going to be distributed and point thirteen so much for emergency.
But as you said it looks like there's going to be split the two votes now.
One on Friday -- nine billion and another one on the fifteenth 451 billion.
And as my sincere hope.
That that nine billion will be directly for the sandy those affected by sandy.
And all the poor -- been cut output that 51 billion dollar bill the vote for the fifteenth and I hope they passed the one on Friday I don't know -- Don't -- I had I don't wanna be jaded here netted you're much more open this up and all everybody but.
I do know a little bit about history of relief measures -- comes to mind.
Even when it comes to relief projects for Haiti.
A look at all we raised in telethon and music bonds for that I mean and I was personally and -- and its -- -- still.
-- of my only point here is that.
You know we we we try to talk a good gain.
On this stuff -- doing what's right but we don't realize that by signing a blank check we're doing everything wrong.
Well if it would be my hope.
That obviously is not going to be one big long chunk of change.
On that there'll be obviously some stricter oversight.
Even with the nine billion obviously -- much smaller sum bond in the original sixty.
Much stricter oversight and it's my hope that eventually -- -- offsets for the spending after the nine billion spent will find nine billion the caught within the day.
The end of the -- the problem in DC it is not raising more revenue.
It spending and we've got to figure this out with a whole debate on fiscal cliff.
You know it's disappointing to -- is the debate is not revolving around how we actually gonna cut some of our government spending and.
Will have a out of Israel has cerebral.
That's -- in -- -- on me because it's wanted to get out buddy.
But -- to demand accountability a -- to offset it was real responsibility that doesn't happen what in the middle all of this we get Chuck Schumer weighing in.
On what should be done about it.
I heard -- IC safe today that the bill didn't move in the house -- it was filled with pork.
I'd like -- price to CI RI with the homeowner who has lost their home and their life.
And tell that homeowner to his face that that's pork.
I would have no problem telling a homeowner you're not getting a lot because someone else except actually -- -- I don't know issue.
I have no issue that I'd say you know and by the way only 15% funding was gonna come to -- point thirteen anyway -- So my hope -- and again not knowing all the details about the vote on Friday.
My hope was that you know the nine billion would be for the -- victims that it would actually be accelerated to be eaten most of it would be -- -- -- third.
If it's an emergency bill -- standpoint thirteen.
And we have an -- really hard look at the other 15 -- at a 51 billion.
And I suspect.
Most of that 51 billion will be pork that is unnecessary you know 150 million for Alaskan fisheries you know we're -- this -- on -- things are mentioning.
Let's take a public we really need to spend money on those things right now on and now let's say no we do not yet strip.
-- all out of that make it up or down vote on on the measure right because ultimately the folks who really needed.
Need the money directly to them and not the -- routes to Alaskan fisheries and rooftops and in Washington.
And and they need it now you know let's be -- they they need it now.
You know let's not push off most suspending till -- at fourteen and beyond let's let's let's make sure most that money is spent -- -- would result on what he's actually -- responds actually.
That exact very very much very well put.
Thanks -- meanwhile --
