Would Romney abolish FEMA? His campaign says no

By Holly Bailey, Yahoo! News

Mitt Romney on a conference call with top aides on Monday (Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)DAVENPORT, Iowa—As Hurricane Sandy bears down on the East Coast, Mitt Romney's campaign is pushing back against suggestions that he wants to abolish the Federal Emergency Management Agency—insisting that he would simply prefer to see states take a greater role in disaster relief.

At a GOP primary debate in June 2011, Romney, when asked about FEMA's budget woes and how he would deal with it, had said, "Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. And if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better."

During that debate, the moderator, CNN's John King, had gone on to ask if that included "disaster relief." Romney suggested it did.

The Center for American Progress, a liberal group, called attention to Romney's remarks in an email to reporters on Sunday.

Asked for clarification today, Romney spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg said the GOP nominee wasn't implying he would get rid of FEMA, but rather that he simply wants states to play a greater role in disaster response.

"Gov. Romney believes that states should be in charge of emergency management in responding to storms and other natural disasters in their jurisdictions," Henneberg said. "As the first responders, states are in the best position to aid affected individuals and communities, and to direct resources and assistance to where they are needed most. This includes help from the federal government and FEMA."

Romney has proposed a budget that includes across-the-board cuts on federal programs, with the exception of defense and entitlement programs, as a way of curbing the growing federal deficit. But he has not said specifically where those cuts would be. Asked if FEMA's budget could be on the list for potential cuts, Henneberg did not comment.

Romney has publicly supported a House GOP budget bill drafted by his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, that called for greater efficiency in federal disaster relief spending.

The debate over FEMA funding could be revived in coming days amid predictions that Hurricane Sandy could cause massive power outage and damage in its path.

Romney doesn't know where he stands until his handlers mark the spot with a big ole X and give him a script with big letters that say what the Private Sector Puppet is supposed to say. Unless you can go back an erase every record of what came out of Romney's own mouth, that bell is impossible to be unrung now.

*We cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids,” Romney said, when asked directly about relief for victims in Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Massachusetts, and other communities hit by tornados and flooding should not receive governmental assistance. He argued it is “simply immoral” to have deficit spending that could harm future generations. http://www.eastcountymagazine.org/node/11541

*In his last year as governor, Romney refused to provide state assistance when major floods hit western Massachusetts., even though the state government had ample funds. http://legalplanet.wordpress.com/2012/10/29/r...

*Romney not only suggested shuttering FEMA and sending responsibility for disaster relief “back to the private sector,” but also said it would be “immoral” for the federal government to fund disaster relief efforts without cutting the budget elsewhere.“It makes no sense at all,” Romney concluded.(Again with this private sector crap?)

Obama doesn't now where he stands until his teleprompters mark the spot. Even then he needs an earpiece to read the multi-syllabic words to him.
