Not again.

Still.

Expectedly, when there's a natural crisis to be dealt with, both the elephants and the donkeys become pigs of whom, you will recall it is said, they are more equal than others in the barnyard.

On Fox & Friends Wednesday morning, Republican Rep. Darrell Issa was less diplomatic. "Your two senators packed this with pork," Issa said, referring to New York Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand. "They had the opportunity to have a $27 to $30 billion dollar legit relief package, packed it with pork, then dared us not to vote on it."

The bill included non-Sandy measures like $150 million for Alaskan fisheries, Politico's Kevin Robillard notes. The plan would have boosted funds for the national flood insurance program, which is estimated to hit its borrowing limit the week of January 7.

Oh, and it would have added - and soon will - billions of dollars to the Corps. of Engineers budget, too, more than doubling it.

Danziger missed that part.

But hey, what, us worry?

Not yet . . .

Apparently.
