10. They need to roll back the tax cuts and cut the pork.
Congress is stuck in a rock and a hard place on both, so what will they do? Cut the Medicaid/Medicare

14. Wait a minute... one of the choices is seriously "cut out pork" ? ? ?
"That only have local impact" ?? ?? ?? ??

Did I miss something?

Isn't that exactly what hurricane relief would be? ? ?
