Republicans stall spending bill containing pork for Laredo, SA, South Texas

Jim DeMint of the Grand Obtructionist Party surveys his minions
Henry Cuellar is responsible for earmarks that would be used to build a $5 million South Texas training center at a yet to be determined location. Cuellar,D-Laredo, was also instrumental in a $475,000 earmark to build a military hangar in the border city of Laredo.

The GOP continued to stand in opposition Wednesday to the year-end $1.1 trillion spending bill in the Senate . The bill not only contains pork barrel projects for Laredo, but also high-dollar earmarks for San Antonio and the surrounding area.

South Texas military installations would see $46 million in construction projects, and San Antonio would benefit from $8 million in bus improvements, cyber security training and other programs in the 1,924-page spending bill.
