'Votes are for sale'

How many of the 218 yea votes for the Iraq war timeline in the House of Representatives were a result of Speaker Nancy Pelosi's bribes with a bit of pork? Put another way: How many yeas would have been nays without the bribe?

Excessive spending with no relation to the war on terror is bribery in my book. What principles? Sounds like a lot of votes are for sale. So what's new?
