I don't really care that Kentucky is getting money; better than spending it on global police actions. What I do care about is that the one party that actually pretends to care about the debt will only consider addressing it from one side. Do we need to cut spending? Yeah. Should tax increases be part of the solution as well? Yeah.

I'm honestly not that concerned about it. If that $2b wasn't going to Kentucky, it'd be going somewhere else. If that $2b to Kentucky made it possible to end the government shutdown and (temporarily, at least) avoid the debt ceiling, then why do I care where it goes if it was going to be spent anyways?
Everyone knows politics is about money. It's all about money. Right or wrong, it comes down to money. The $2b was going to be spent anyways, so if it helped keep our economy from being destroyed, why not spend it on the dam?
Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.
