    Once again the far-right of the GOP (are there any moderates left?) show us how compassionate they are and prove why a majority of Americans hold them in low regard concerning the welfare of the nation.

    Bullshit. Your point would be pointy if the Rs said "no Sandy relief for you!". They didn't.

    Republicans know that budgeting for a rainy day and off-setting emergency spending with cutting someplace else is common sense. When oh when will they learn that Dems lack common sense and the Dems pea-brains damn near explode when you inject it into a conversation.

    No spending cuts! Tax the rich a bit more! Free ice cream for everyone! <--- The Dem way or no way!

    See ya at the bottom.

    So, the victims of Sandy should have to wait for relief because Republicans want unrelated spending cuts in return? Talk about bullshit -- you're wading in it.

    Yea well as usual, it's packed with other spending, mark me not surprised:rolleyes:

    for example -


    SENATE SANDY AID PROPOSAL: The Senate released details of its $60.4 billion Sandy aid legislation. Among the spending: $482 million to NOAA for severe weather forecasting, marine debris cleanup, repair of facilities and equipment and coastal ecosystem protection; $810 million to EPA for clean water and drinking water state revolving funds to upgrade water infrastructure; $5 million for EPA’s leaking underground storage tank cleanup program; $2 million for Superfund sites; $3 million to the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement to repair a New Jersey oil spill response testing facility; $78 million to the Fish and Wildlife Service for national wildlife refuges; and $4.4 million for Forest Service recovery efforts.

    Hmmmmm. I didn't hear Lummis or Labrador preaching that when their states were burning and FEMA responded with help. And, I didn't hear Landry after Hurricane Isaac earlier this year either. In fact, I recall him meeting with the President when he went down to Louisiana and I'll just bet you he never said, "Don't send us any help until you can find an offset."
