The Senate approved a 1.1 trillion spending bill that has over 5000 pork projects added on. I distinctly remember hearing the president saying during the campaign, “I will veto any bill that is loaded with pork projects”.
I can hear the comment now. If the bill is not signed the government will shut down and that cannot be allowed. Next time the pork laden bill will be vetoed.
Nothing has changed. It is politics as usual. The change we can believe in is missing in action. After all it was just a campaign promise.
