    If they cut Michelle Obamas vacation allowance, New Orleans could be rebuilt.

    Maybe because emergency relief costs money, so it needs to come from somewhere?
    What is so difficult to understand about that?

    I have helped with disaster response while woking for the military and I can tell you it is a huge effort and costs a lot of money. Supplies don't just appear out of thin air, they have to be purchased.

    So whats wrong from diverting money from welfare abusers who don't need it to people who do need it?

    eric cantor is most probably suffering from ptsd after this supersniper hit the window of his campaign office and positioned the bullet on the floor. as a warning.

    Daffy has something to say to Cantor about that.

    I, on the other hand, expect this from politicians. I do think emergency expenditures should be exempted from PayGo, if we had it, but this is not the same thing. We are currently spending way too much money, and spending more without making sure it comes out of someone's budget makes no sense.

    He's a typical Republican. They care nothing for the middle class even though the majority of their base is middle class. They understand that because we have a black president, Republicans will vote for anything white, no matter how it hurts them. They hate the black guy more.

    Again, the enemy of the Liberal is the REAL World and the facts that reside therein.

    The House has already passed the bill to help the victims of Irene's stay in their fair cities. The Bill is currently stalled in the Senate. Again. Is anyone else a little miffed at the ongoing lethargy and sloth of the Dems in the Senate?

    Even the Huff&Puff Post knows the facts even though they don't understand the reality.
