Perdue asks Obama to declare state of emergency | ajc.com ONE argument I have heard fro many conservatives and I assume GOP supporters on this board is that Obama is trying to provide health insurance to people against the will of the US Constituion. I am asking if these same people feel the same way about other Federal agencies, such as FEMA? Is FEMA too intrusive? Does it fly in the face of the Constitution? Where in the Constitution does it state that FEMA will help the states that ask for it? Why is a Republican governor asking for Federal help in the first place?
