How Can I Be Broke? I Still Have Checks Left (Part VI)

With a firmly Republican Executive and Legislative Branch, surely there's no one to blame for the recent bloated tick of a spending bill just passed, right? Wrong:
Arizona's junior senator, Republican Jon Kyl, also voted against the bill, but in a more low-key and partisan manner, placing the blame squarely on the shoulders of congressional Democrats.

"Obstructionist tactics by the Democratic minority prevented much of the federal government's discretionary spending from even being legitimately debated, by grinding the budget bill and individual appropriations bills to a halt with endless amendments and other parliamentary delaying tactics," observed Kyl.

The end result, he added, "is a lousy way to legislate."
Anyone understand what the fuck he's even talking about? Or how Democrats just bending and spreading would have somehow kept the pork (no pun intended) to a minimum?
