I thought Boner's butt boy was all about CUTTING govt spending?

I'm guessing any cuts or offsets will come from programs which help poor people.

Here's an idea- use the billions in tax breaks given to the oil companies on aid.....

Plus I thought Cantor was big on states rights? Well then let Virginia take care of their own problems with their own taxpayers money. Why should my tax dollars from Michigan go to help in yet another coastal "emergency"?

The longstanding generosity of the top 5% of income earners in America get to help out another town. Meanwhile, the lower 50% of income earners will continue paying no taxes and still get all sorts of free money each year from the top 5%, not counting the many non-income earners, who work under the table and pay no taxes, while watching their big flat screen TVs.

Don't get so bent, this taxation scheme has been working just fine since the FED set it up...

Don't rock the boat, just know that the top 5% can afford it...

EVERY tea party politician is a hypocrite just like those who voted for them.

Virginia who voted for Caantor should be denied ANY federal gvm't.

Same way Florida who voted for Marco Rubio should be denied any fed aid when hurricane hits.

Tea party bunch are the first screaming for fed aid.

The role of the top 5% is to create jobs and generate human energy, not put free TVs on people's walls and parlay bail out funds into Democrat reelection campaigns. A Communist Democrat run privately owned Fed can only get so far with this "a car in every garage, pot in every pipe" crap.

Last state election, Florida voted straight tea party so please do not give us a damn penny in federal aid if hurricane hits this yr or next.

Cuban run Miami-dade voted for all tea party republicans so esp no aid here.
However we will be the first screaming for aid if we get hit. We will scream for aid faster than key west who usually gets hit the hardest.

Irony is that we do suck up your tax money in our assorted bogus REPUBLICAN "Cuba libre" funds.

"A report by the Cuban-American National Foundation released in May showed that less than 17 percent of $65 million in federal Cuba aid funds spent during the past 10 years went to ''direct, on-island assistance.'' The bulk of the money, the report said, went to academic studies and expenses of exile organizations, mostly in Miami and Washington."

Know who your friends are, but know who your enemies are better, is my motto. Historically, it's never worked out well, for the lowest common detritus in society to tell the creators of wealth what to do and how to do it. It ends up hurting those really in need and unable, instead of a bunch of freeloaders and arrogant thieves.
