Speaker Boehner Promises to Pass Sandy Bill Without Senate Pork

Speaker Boehner promised Wednesday to pass emergency spending bill to help pay for damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. The House bill will not include the millions of dollars in pork that were included in the Senate bill.

Earlier in the day Governor Chris Christie lashed out at Boehner for not holding a vote on the pork-laden senate bill.
