    Nope. That is not socialism. That is government doing what they are supposed to do with our tax dollars. Defend and PROTECT.

    You see, us "right wing nuts" know how to discerne between what the government should be doing with our tax dollars and what they should not be doing with our tax dollars.

    Where does it state in the Constitution that the Federal Government is supposed to pay for clean up after a flood?

    Your inability to understand the difference between "defending and protecting" and controlling is not my problem.

    I know, I know. It is not your problem either.

    Sorry VaYank. I am not going to get into that petty back and forth with you. It is not my style and I believe it is not yours.

    You know the difference and if you dont want to admit it, then dont.

    Of course I do, Jarhead. I am simply using the exact argument that right wingers and Tea Baggers used to fight against Healthcare reform. Why can they use it for one thing and not another?

    Becuase one is universal and the other is not.

    Everyone may need help due to natural or man made disasters.

    Only a small portion of Americans need healthcare and even that is up for discussion.

    $28M is hardly a drop in the bucket given the multi billion dollar damage. But nobody is getting evacuated
    And gov't created the problem in the first place by offering flood insurance so private companies do not.
