I break my rule against listicles for this special occasion. The last one sounds less small-beer than the other nine, right? I include it to show that Congress could pass a wide-ranging, controversial bill in pretty short notice, after all.

2 of our families (brother and cousin) are still struggling to return to their homes. The financial struggle between insurance and fema may create a hopeless situation for at least one of them. I'm working for the green party the next few years

The voters need to 'clean House'. There's truly some despicable creatures in Congress who lack humanity and heart.

Thnaks Carrie. Like any list, there's so much more that was hidden in that bill. Some very horrible spending was inserted as pork at the white House's request. The only way to fix this is to get all the incumbents out of Washington. Despite all our complaing about horrible Dems or Reps, we voted most of them back in!!!!

One should remember that elves have only recently had kindly reputations, originally they were know for evil and deadly pranks, stealing babies and leaving changelings in their place, dancing people to death, or putting them to sleep for decades.
All that aside, most of you seem to be under the false notion that the Repug/Tea Bagged are actually in DC to govern for the common good of America and Americans. You are sadly mistaken they are in DC to kill government as envisioned by the Founding Fathers and replace it with Theo-Fascist Plutocracy that exists only for corporate profit, enriching the rich and establishing their chosen Christian Sharia as the foundation of American law and the US Constitution.

Thank You Carrie for the list - all of which in my opinion amount to diddly squat, except for #1. Leaving the
victims of Sandy in such horrible conditions is preposterous. and action must be taken right away. Also Fema needs to be given a kick in the rear for trying to find loopholes to not do what I thought they were intended to do.
