Did those 36 vote against the relief bill because it had too much PORK in it? Were they standing on their principles?

He only gets one vote on council and the other five have not made their positions known. We all know that Sullivan and Leest will vote NO, they vote NO on EVERYTHING! How much courage does it take McGrail to do what's right and face opposition in an election year?

On the other hand; you are okay with "billions" being doled out in "pork" that was attached to a bill solely intended as a rescue measure. You think those billions in pork just manifested themselves out of thin air?

First, our own Senator Rubio voted against that aid. I guess he won't support future help for SE Florida in the event of another hurricane Andrew. Robert, you need to study the entire revenue plan the city council has outlined because you obviously missed it.
