Sen. Shelby (R-AL) Want Pork
Actually I have no problem with the opposition party putting "holds" on presidential appointments if they have specific concerns. But to put a hold on every appointment until you get the pork you want for your state seems more like a hostage situation. I can think of an easier way for Shelby to get his pork. In exchange for your airforce tanker contracts, be willing to vote for cloture on any healthcare reform bill that makes it back to the Senate (you can still vote against the Bill itself, a majority already support it).
