Boehner has said that the 113th Congress will address Sandy aid. After all, did we even think we'd have some sort of arrangement to prevent the fiscal cliff? Remember, even if the House voted on a bill, the Senate has shown no compunction to address any pending legislature from the house. I'm not taking sides or making excuses, just noting hypocrisy when I see it.
At this point I kind of want to purge both houses of congress and write comprehensive rules against attaching irrelevant appropriations bills to other bills. The fact that so many pet projects on both sides of the aisle get funding in this fashion is nothing short of disgusting.
