Wow...we should determine who adds "pork" to these bills and get them out of office no matter whether Republican or Democrat. I am sick of all the off issue projects added to such bills. These provisions do not benefit the citizens of the state or the country. If Lamar runs again, he's losing at least one vote.

Alexander received a nice commission for defecting against Republicans: WASHINGTON — A deal to reopen the government and avert a debt default also includes language authorizing more than $2.8 billion in funding for a locks and dam project championed in the past by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. The provision would steer $2.918 billion in funding to the Army Corps of Engineers for the Olmsted dam and lock project on the Ohio River, and would benefit Kentucky, Tennessee, and Illinois.

Proud of Senator Alexander! Doing what's best for the country and not being afraid to ruffle your own party's feathers. He has always been willing to reach across the aisle when it is best for the country. This partisan bickering has to stop. We need more deal making and less division - there's a country to run! Also, kudo's to Senator Corker for his vote to end the shutdown and avert default!
