Many "red states" have larger-than-average black and Native American populations.
Your comments are racist and offensive.
so what those states should do is to turn around some of the free cash they get for having all of those folks and their more numerous white compatriots on the dole, and send it right back to DC.

non-defict spending. you should love it.

Food Stamp Booker? He gained 30 lbs. Surveillance cameras spotted him at strip clubs and porn shows, all financed by public funds, not yours mind you, tax payer's.
You seem outraged at the relief holdup but dismissive of the pork attached to it. I should think a compassionate person, such as yourself, would have more to say about the shameless exploitation of a crisis.
Liar.(about Mayor Booker)

I will concur that I am not aware of all that was in the bill; which is another issue altogether. Let's have clean bills without sneaking other stuff in them.
The amount that was released went to flood insurance companies? I'm not sure I understand that. Why not just directly help the people instead of insurance companies?

SNAP fraud, waste, and abuse....!
'According to the Department, improper payments for these programs in FY 2009 cost taxpayers nearly $2.2 billion for SNAP...'
http://www.agri-pulse.com/OIG_targets_fraud_a...
SNAP has one of the most rigorous quality control systems of any public benefit program, and despite the recent growth in caseloads, the share of total SNAP payments that represent overpayments, underpayments, or payments to ineligible households reached a record low in fiscal year 2011.

Scumbag muslim murderer Major. Hassan hasn't even been tried, Loughner lounges in some comfy nut house. Liberals are all talk.
Well, I'm a liberal and had hoped that the police would have shot him dead on the spot. Be careful with your labels, they don't fit everyone. Same with Hassan, should have been shot dead. Save the time and trouble of a trial not to mention the stress on the victims and their families.

G.O.P. Freshmen Saddened by Failure to Shut Down Government on First Day
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Just hours after being sworn in at the U.S. Capitol, the freshman class of House Republicans said that they were disappointed that they failed to shut down the government on their first day in office.
“We were all like,‘O.K., we’re sworn in, let’s shut this thing down,’” said freshman Rep. Byron Ernie (R-Kentucky).“We were all pretty bummed that the government just kept running.”
Rep. Ernie acknowledged that it might have been “overly optimistic” of the freshman Republicans to expect to engineer a government shutdown on their very first day,“but bringing the government to a random standstill was the whole reason we became Republicans,” he said
Surveying the cherubic faces of the incoming Republicans, he said,“They’re like kids who want to close down a candy store.”

Disasters such as Sandy always attract freeloaders.
Cut out the pork (such as Alaska fisheries), the government overtime, the roller coasters, the boardwalks, and vacation homes for millionaires first.
Then require those who want taxpayer compensation to relocate elsewhere rather than rebuilding in the flood zone.
Then compensate the truly "poor and disadvantaged."
I'm not against eliminating pork, as mentioned in last post, I wish we could just have clean bills. What about flood zones on the Mississippi, Colorado and Iowa rivers? I'm not sure how much flood insurance costs in those areas, but in Florida we have high hurricane insurance costs with high deductibles. Perhaps we should have a national disaster tax to cover these problems, since they 're not going away and get rid of the insurance companies altogether.
The fact that there are so many still without heat in the winter is a disaster.

What ever came from Cory Bookers experiment, living on foodstamps?
In addition; perhaps those 67 congressmen who voted no on Sandy relief should have had to make the trip to see the devastation first hand and then vote.
They like to keep busy harrassing the poor and disadvantaged; meanwhile the the big takers go untouched.
We shall see what actual loopholes are going to be closed. Sounds like total bs to me.
Booker's experiment ended and proved nothing__pure political stunt that's been done before. Simply eating less doesn't include the stress that brokeazz people deal with day in and day out.

Sandy relief presents some unusual problems for many of the destroyed beachfront homes were not primary residences or even personal weekend/vacation homes but investment properties rented out for mega bucks during summertime. FEMA should not be providing disaster money for many of those homes but there is plenty of room for hanky panky.

The problem of course is that post disaster everyone wants everything in a giddyup hurry so all sorts of mistakes are made. The governments (all levels) need to focus on pre disaster planning in an effort to lighten governments post disaster burden.

Living within feet of the ocean involves financial risk__or at least should.

i agree about zero tolerance. but my problem is.....

For some, the Welfare Queen is an epic political lie. Reagan invented her, and Americans keep buying the lie.

"It's one of those persistent symbols that come up every election cycle," says Kaaryn Gustafson, author of "Cheating Welfare: Public Assistance and the Criminalization of Poverty."

"This image of the lazy African-American woman who refuses to get a job and keeps having kids is pretty enduring. It's always been a good way to distract the public from any meaningful conversations about poverty and inequality.''

For others, the Welfare Queen reveals an uncomfortable truth: More Americans have turned the social safety net into a hammock.

"You hear these horror stories going around that people are buying junk food with food stamps and paying cash for vodka and beer and things not covered with food stamps -- that gets people mad," says Steven Hayward, author of "The Age of Reagan: The Fall of the Old Liberal Order: 1964-1980."

The Welfare Queen has become such a legendary character in political circles that her existence is treated like Bigfoot. Most scholars say she never existed, while a few insist the truth is out there.

http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/23/politics/weflar...

Bigfoot. Most. Few.

Economists consider SNAP one of the most effective forms of economic stimulus. Moody’s Analytics estimates that in a weak economy, every dollar increase in SNAP benefits generates $1.72 in economic activity. Similarly, CBO rated an increase in SNAP benefits as one of the two most cost-effective of all spending and tax options it examined for boosting growth and jobs in a weak economy.

According to the National Academy of Science poverty measures, which count SNAP as income, SNAP kept about 4 million people out of poverty in 2010 and lessened the severity of poverty for millions of others.
