    They sent ANOTHER bill over to the Senate that had scant chance of passing. They wanted off-sets, for political purposes, in lieu of helping out people who need FEMA assistance.

    Why are Boehner & Cantor sending over job-killing bills even the Chamber of Commerce objects to? :eusa_eh: :eusa_wall:

    If I'm not mistaken the Reps want to pay for the disaster relief.

    They want to use the subsidies for the green bs to pay for it. Works for me especially when Barry's green crap has cost we taxpayers half a billion already. Money we are last in line to get back. Solyndra anyone.??

    Put that money to good use. Disaster relief.

    The "green BS" as you affectionately refer to it as, was instituted in 2005 by Bu$h II.

    Why do I get the feeling that you're prolly overjoyed w/ the failure of the enterprise anyway?

    Well Dot Obama came in pushing his green energy bs big time. Green was going to creat tons of jobs. It didn't.

    In case you forgot the Bush administration nixed the Solyndra deal because of the instability of the company. Bush's DOE said no way. PW house as well.

    Obamas administration totally ignored the reports from the Bush adminsistrations DOE and the PW eval. all in the name of Barry's Green agenda.

    Now, who would you say screwed the pooch on that one Dot??

    Withholding emergency funds is now termed "the Cantor Doctrine" :rolleyes:

    BTW- the chamber of commerce said Boehner/Cantor's bill was a job-killer that would kill 45,000 jobs :(

    There would be a hell of a lot more jobs if the government stopped wasting money trying to "create" them.

    The federal government shouldn't be subsidizing industries in the first place, nor should they be paying people's bills because of natural disasters.

    Tell that to the Chamber of Commerce. Last I heard they weren't exactly "cozy" w/ the Democrats. ;)
