Help the Katrina victims!

Racism!

Help the poor and dis-advantaged!

"...For example, according to Social Security Administration (SSA) data, FEMA made millions of dollars in payments to thousands of
registrants who submitted Social Security Numbers (SSN) that have not been issued or belonged to deceased individuals."

Banks are now paying 8.5 billion to settle with thousands of homeowners they wrongfully foreclosed on.

So it wasn't Democrats "forcing banks" to make bad loans afterall.

Help us!

Bush!

Help us by giving us money...

The GOV owes us!

"...In one specific case example, 17 individuals, some of whom shared the same last name and current addresses, used 34 different SSNs
that did not belong to them and addresses that were either bogus or were not their residences to receive more than $103,000 in FEMA payments."

Wait...not so fast
We don't have a resource problem...the people have ethics problems...
"DOJ advised that approximately 1.7 million persons were displaced as a result of these storms, yet
FEMA received 2.5 million applications for disaster assistance."

So, people who lost jobs, vehicles, damaged homes that were livable didn't count?

Not everyone eligible for assistance were displaced.

Are you really this stupid?

Real Dave's Post is worth repeating.

We had a balanced budget & were on the path to paying down the debt.

What happened?

Dumbasses like you elected George W Bush & a Republican Congress.

Yes, the same ones that are running screaming through the streets today about debt actually voted to take us off path & sent us down the road to debt & deficits.

Bush not only doubled the debt, he left office with the worst recession in 80 years that has driven the debt since.

If you really cared about the debt, you would quit voting for the party that made this mess - Republicans.

AMEN

Update for homeo:
"Obama expanded it to include cell phones and the numbers then skyrocketed and that is when the term "Obama phone" was for, the tens (if not hundreds of thousands)of thousands of added cell phones. It was named after him because he created the program but because he expanded it beyond out ability to control it. "
The phone program was started by Bush43 so the actual name should be BushPhones you ignorant POS.

Dang, Dave. I was going to jerk him around for a while before giving him your answer.

Suffice to say, he really is that stupid. And smug about it.

Duhhhhhhh...

One half of one percent of disaster victims turn out to be con artists.

So let's just penalize everyone by shutting down the program.

Let's see, who was in control of Congress that wrote the bill that gave the cell phones to the so-called "poor"?
Congress writes the laws, dufus. Here, in the United States, the president can't write his own laws... you know, like ordering private insurance companies to cover birth control pills.... That has to be spelled out in some legislation that is passed by Congress.
You must be another dufus that never read the Constitution... or the applicable law. You and Obama have at least that in common.
The free phone program started well before then.

The cell phones were added as a cost cutting measure because it was cheaper in some cases to installing & maintaining a land line.

Whether Congress did it or not, it was not done while Obama was President.

When you idiots quit lying about this?

I like the way you Repugnants justify Bush and Cheney for their war-by-lies in Iraq:

The CIA lied to them!

Yes, the same CIA Cheney bypassed by setting up his own private office in the Pentagon where all CIA reports on Iraq were sent.

Cheney then decided which ones he "liked".

I actually agree with your point, believe it or not.

That doesn't let Kiltaker off the hook for his nonsense.
