Just imagine if NY/NJ would have had a REAL storm. Cat 1 is just another windy day.

I know people affected by the storm. That's a jerk thing to say.

The Superstorm was only "Super" because it was a storm in New York. Anywhere else it would have not even made the news.

It's been 66 days since Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, causing major damage in New York and New Jersey. The storm was so powerful, it is in the running to become the most expensive storm for taxpayers on record. Historically, Congress has passed hurricane relief bills in the immediate aftermath of storm damage, but Sandy is a different story. Why? Congress wrote up Hurricane Sandy Relief legislation and then Harry Reid's Senate loaded it with pork. What's in it? Many things that hardly count as relief for victims.

The pork-barrel feast includes more than $8...
