War funding bill full of pork
To the editor:Do you know the rest of the story about the war funding bill? Even though the politicians and news media have had many programs about the bill, only one has mentioned the following items: Congress added pork to the bill.
U.S. Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., said, "Spinach, shrimp, peanuts and shellfish? That's not a war funding bill. That's the salad bar at Denny's."
Now you know the part we haven't heard on the news.
