    Since NY, NJ and Connecticut are major taxpaying states, per capita, and NY already receives less in funding, per capita, than most other states, I say residents of the states involved temporarily stop paying federal taxes, until this is resolved, and perhaps for some time after.

    As of 2007, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York were #2, #4 and #5, respectively, on tax revenue, per capita.

    And yet, they were #17, #37, and #27 respectively in receiving federal funding, per capita.

    I saw this coming a hundred miles away and yet they want to spend many times this on weapons no one even wants.

    60 Billion.

    Which is less than the amount authorized for Katrina, even though more people are affected by this than by Katrina.

    They asked for $80B

    These are all union states so the ultimate cost will be double whatever they asked and only half the work gets done

    A conservative's incredibly conditional sense of charity is so conditional that it ceases to be charity and becomes a political weapon. How much suffering are you willing to inflict in the republican vendetta against unions?
