Senate Dems upend government funding over Flint
Already far too much pork in that bill without anything more for Flint, MI.... which is a State/Local issue NOT a Federal one.
The real reason is the bill carries a reveal the corporate political funding sources law..
Pork? Did you read it? The article states that the money would be a trade, that another program would be deleted to cover so that the money would not have to be added to the budget. So Louisiana gets flood relief funds added on, yet Flint gets nothing even when the funds wouldn't have to be added, AND when the approval passed the Senate almost unanimously.
The Flint problem is a man made problem and should be dealt with by the state. The Louisiana flooding is a natural disaster and they are dealt with by emergency funds. If the feds pay for the lead pipe replacement in Flint, there are thousand of cities in the other 49 states that will have there hands out.
The flood relief funds are pork too. It's a State/Local issue, not a Federal one.
Pretty sure natural disasters are a fed problem.
I suppose we could just let the ports in Louisiana die as they dont mean shit to the economy right?
That goes for California and all their wildfires,earth quakes and drought as well I'm assuming.
And I suppose the port of Houston should be abandoned after a hurricane since we know it has no impact on the economy.
I can't find them anywhere in Article I, Section 8.
So FEMA is just a figment of my imagination.....
No. It's a figment of our Nightmares. Just like the Departments of Education, Energy, HUD, Transportation and many other unconstitutional groups, departments, and programs.
