    What percentage of this money will get to the people hurt by the storm, and why aren't we hearing of insurances companies fixing the damages? Didn't Obama refer to these companies as being rich?

    Are the people of the northeast complaining of the leaders they voted in?

    If an executive order can stop the fast and furious investigation, it can get aid to the northeast.

    Kansas, let’s hope the other republicans remember your budgetary concerns when the next big Tornado hits that state, and relief aid is requested. Somehow I have a feeling that aid to Kansas will then be somehow justified... unlike the people of the Northeast.

    Are we really going to start withholding aide to parts of the county based on how they voted in the last election? The precedent being made here by these reps is a really slippery sloop.
