It must be close to Christmastime.  President Obama is putting together a package of relief for those that were touched by Hurricane Sandy.

Based on that, it makes one wonder why fisheries in Alaska or the roof at the Smithsonian were included in the bill.  Also, there is $8 million to buy cars and equipment for Homeland Security and the Justice Department.

What do you think?  Is this a good idea or simply business as usual in Washington?
