As floods ravage the Mississippi basin and the South picks itself up from last month's devastating tornadoes, Republicans controlling a key House panel boosted funding for relief efforts on Friday to address a major shortfall in the Obama administration's disaster aid budget.

Who gives a rats ass about the so called poor who are getting flooded out if the dumb @sses where to stupid to get flood Insurance to bad for them.open the dikes and flood the area if your going to give hands out give it to industry and farmers in fact bull dozer every home for one mile in the flood zone into the ground and then give the land to the farmers to do something intelligent like grow food.Stop supporting ignorance,Vote to Impeach any state or federal official who support hand outs.Give the saved money to the oil industry and get them to lower the cost of producing Gas.The current crop of republicans are just as bad as the democrats always looking for a Hand out so they can get their VOTES...Screw them all.Souther states if your Flooding Oh well its a natural disaster live with it if you cant then go swiming.

Freeloading retiree?? You are a stupid bigot socialist ignorant racists who keep people down with empty promises to get their vote and then don't do shit for them! LOL

MY retirement, boy is based on 40 years of a career in WHICH we opted out of the Social Security. It's all private, other American citizens don't pay a thing for my retirement. I would include you in on that, but since you're a demorat welfare junkie, I doubt you pay taxes anyway.

Did I mention our group also has health insurance for the retirees?
I also invested during those 40 years, you are helping my retirement by many of the programs in the computer that you fabricate your bullshit on!! LOL Thanks.
Again, since you missed it, stupid. My city taxes in my town PAY for our own fire department. We voted for it.

Texas request for federal funds comes from the fact that Texas pays twice as much federal taxes compared to money they take in. Nobama is playing a political game because we are the biggest thorn in his side, Perry and other red state governors are proof he's an idiot, since we have created most of the jobs in the US in the last 8 years.

You are really one stupid human being. A bunch of tripped-out, Marxist jerks with no common sense.

Keep spewing, boy. You prove my point with each post!!

Puhleeze. You are just another GOP Commmie Socialist who can't cut more out of your budget so you have to go beg the federal government for my hard-earned taxdollars to cover your butt. Next thing you know you're going to ask to raise taxes to cover your budget shortfalls.

YOU voted for fire department but others in your city might not have. Why should THEY pay for YOUR fire department you commie socialist.

Tell Sheila Jackson yourself you lazy bum. Get a JOB!

" Disaster Aid ", as in taxpayer funding for people that continue to live and farm, in floodplain areas that historically, have flooded out regularly, for centurys? Only throwing money at foreign aid, is a dumber concept.....Even Jesus would have instructed,...move to higher ground...geesh....
