I noticed that Eric Cantor, the republican representative of your district says before funding from fema occurs that offsets in cuts in other funding must be doene beofre fema can use emergency fundin. Now thats my kinda guy--he sure watches out for the tax payer, but i noticed he likes to do his earmarking of funds silently behind the scenes. With a letter requesting money from departemnt heads. Not in the public eye. evasive aint he.
