Why in the Hell would the GOP put cuts to a loan program to create fuel efficient cars in a disaster-aid bill when the economy needs those jobs… unless of course they are trying to further tank the economy…

These right-wing bastards are disgusting; people are suffering and they are trying to add to that suffer, the suffering that their failed policies brought about in the first place.

The Fascist Reich running the House of Corporate Representatives won't pass ANY spending bill, even for disaster relief unless it's got a POISON PILL piece of bogus legislation larded up on it.

We have the lowest effective tax rates in human history on the wealthiest, and the corporations.

We have an electorate that stands behind the president in wanting TO TAX THE RICH AND CORPORATIONS to whatever level it takes to get the economy going again.

There IS NO DOWN SIDE to a 'take no prisoners' attitude from the left.

Boner, the "Duke of Orange" can't control his own caucus- he has ZERO CONTROL of his troops, and needs to resign in shame.

Playing politics with destroyed bridges, roads, broken infrastructure, holding IT HOSTAGE to a CORPORATE FASCIST REICH AGENDA is anti-American, and will blow up in their faces, hopefully soon.

The number one agenda of the Fascist Reich is to deny Obama another term BECAUSE HE'S BLACK.

Nothing more.

The Reich would deny food to the starving, and thinks "acts of god" like natural disasters are best met with "prayer" like Bush's Surgeon General said women with menopause should try before medication.

More left bullshit fabricated propaganda from a phoney Marine and "fascist girl!" LMAO

"Earlier Monday, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., said Republicans will attach a disaster aid package to must-pass legislation for keeping the government fully running past Sept. 30. That stopgap spending bill is likely to advance next week."

The reason why this happens constantly is that Democrats decide to fill their bills with pork and put a nice name on it that way their clueless base can demonize Republicans when they say they want to look the spending over.

The left is so gullible!

Maybe it's because they, along with the American public, is tired of this government spending, that we as citizens have to end up paying for.
How about maybe these people that had this loss, maybe, just maybe had insurance, and if not, they should have.
Edit: Look at the bill to help the families of Homested florida when the hurricane demolished the area, The Democrats in true fashion got togethe and passed a nasssive aid bill, and promised to rebuild the area, but, people like Robert Byrd, one of many dems in control, added millions of pork to the bills and all were taken care of, except the rebuilding of Homested.
Or are we to overlook or forget these things ?

Liars and theives of the taxpayers, the American left!

MORE MISMANAGEMENT BY BARACK H OBAMA!!!

"The Federal Emergency Management Agency has only a few days' worth of aid remaining in its disaster relief fund, lawmakers said. The agency already has held up thousands of longer-term rebuilding projects - repairs to sewer systems, parks, roads and bridges, for example - to conserve money to provide emergency relief to victims of recent disasters.

The looming shortage has been apparent for months, and the Obama White House was slow to request additional money."

MEANWHILE HIS RICH CRONIES ALREADY SATED WITH STIMULOUS MONEY SIT AT HOME, FULL BANK ACCOUNTS, WE ARE -2MILLION JOBS SINCE HIS INAUGURATION, THERE IS NO MONEY FOR SIMPLE DISASTER RELIEF AND BASIC GOVERNMENT. TOO BUSY MUNCHING ON $16 MUFFINS, CAMPAIGNING, EMITTING A HUGE CARBON FOOTPRINT ON AF1, OFFERING $35,800 CAMPAIGN LUNCHEONS WITH BUFFETT FOR THE EQUALLY RICH, TRYING TO STICK IT TO MIDDLE AMERICANS WHO ARE 50 TIMES POORER.

FIRE THE FRAUD NOW!!!!!!!

Woof, the Hose passed their own bill and sent it to the Senate. The House bill was paid for by cutting unnecessary spending on things like hand outs for electric automobile manufacturers. Harry Reid won't even bring it up for a vote in the Senate. That is not mentioned by the Democrats. So who is holding back Disaster S[ending? I say it is the Democrats.

What part of "we won't vote for another spending bill does the Democrat tax thieves not understand?" They will only vote on spending cuts first, then maybe tax increases. They are such scammers. They will exploit anyone, even the poor.

Another government crisis, because Barack H Obama is too busy back door deal making with his cronies, to do his job:

READ THIS LATEST & send around ASAP

Solyndra execs are a pack of lying scoundrels. Color me stunned. Meanwhile, the White House should be compelled to answer for its role in overruling Bush-era (and some of its own auditors') recommendations against granting half-a-trillion in loan guarantees to a company that "everyone knew" was doomed to fail. And for helping Solyndra disguise its collapse in order to help facilitate a loan refinancing that benefited one of the company's chief investors -- who just happens to also be a major Obama donor and campaign bundler. And for granting Solyndra more stimulus money than 35 US states received for "shovel ready" highways, roads, and bridges projects. I'll leave you with this blood-boiling clip of aforementioned Solyndra investor and Obama billionaire bundler George Kaiser bragging about how his many visits to Washington helped his interests secure a massive taxpayer-funded "stimulus" windfall.

READ AGAIN: "Obama BILLIONAIRE bundler George Kaiser". Obama is an uncle Tom helping billionaires and the real filthy rich steal from middle americans and small businesses who pay the most income taxes.

Note too: Obama has been blaming Bush publicly for making him grant the loan to Solyndra when Bush and auditors had clearly been advising against it. Blaming Bush again, WHEN IT WAS HIS OWN CAMPAIGN DONOR & BUNDLER WHO VISITED OBAMA SEVERAL TIMES. UNBELIEVABLE! WHAT AN EMBARASSMENT.

Is this what you just saw on TV (notice the dates).

The DOJ spent $121 million on conferences in fiscal 2008 and 2009, which exceeded its own spending limits and appeared to be extravagant and wasteful, according to the report that examined 10 conferences held during that period.

The review turned up the expensive muffins, which came from the Capital Hilton Hotel just blocks from the White House, as well as cookies and brownies that cost almost $10 each.
