Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) sponsored an amendment that would have administered a 1.63% cut to discretionary programs to fund the $17 billion baseline bill. "The time has come and gone in this nation where we can walk in here one day and spend nine or 17 or 60 billion dollars and not think about who's paying for it," said Rep. Mulvaney.

However, the measure was defeated 162-258. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) voted against the Mulvaney amendment; Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) voted for it. Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee Hal Rogers (R-KY) blasted the effort to offset spending, saying it would involve “devastating slash and burn cuts” that would “totally discriminate, cutting the good and the bad.”

On top of the $17 billion bill, Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ) offered another amendment that added $33.7 billion to the aid package. That measure passed 228-192, with 20 Republicans from unaffected areas voting for it.

In an email to Breitbart News, American Majority Action Press Secretary Ron Meyer said big spending Republicans have much to explain:

Republicans run the House of Representatives, yet, somehow, the House passed a pork-ridden, unpaid-for bill. More than 80 percent of this supposed ‘emergency’ bill will be spent after 2013, and $1 of every $20 will be spent on pork projects.

...conservative-in-name-only fiscalites and teahadist double-speak strikes again.

I believe Bush-baby has apologized for his bad handling of Katrina - we can only hope that he learned some lessons and would have been smarter if he had been president for Hurricane Sandy.
Doubt it and thankfully Bush-baby is not our president.
So you are comparing a tropical storm to a category 5 hurricne? LOL

No we are comparing one scoop or two to an occurrence with a liberal governor and mayor that one wouldn't let the national guard in for three days and the other didn't move buses in for people to evacuate. Instead the flooded while Nagal ran to Houston and a luxury hotel instead of helping his people.
