Deal keeps federal agencies funded through Nov. 18
'Pagan, why do you create and repeat misinformation?' - lost in DC | 7:25
a.m. Sept. 27, 2011 And what information did I 'create' here Lost?
LA times? Politico? The DSNews? No. When
claiming that I am lying, you better make sure you can support that. Can't
believe this is part of 'civil dialouge.' Also, we need to pay for
natural disasters.... now? *'Iraq war could cost
taxpayers $2.7 trillion' - By David Goldman - CNN - 06/12/08 '...told
members of Congress that the war costs taxpayers about $430 million per
day...' Where was your outrage... then? When
Republicans voted George W. Bush in, twice? And did NOT pay for: Iraq The Patriot Act Afghanistan Katrina TSA
TARP Wall Street Bailouts Auto bailouts, etc, etc. The only time Republicans want to START being responsible... is
when there is a Democrat president.
Worf,I guess you missed the part where it said there WAS money in FEMA's
pot.Pagan,why do you create and repeat misinformation?Sure, the repub leadership lost that vote, but won the next one after
the bill was tweaked. You twist things to make it appear as if no bill were
passed, because you OMIT the fact that it WAS passed the next day. Why do you make it seem as if Cantor says "no money whatsoever" for
Joplin? You and I both know that is untrue. He said any additional spent there
would - wait for it - HAVE TO BE PAID FOR! What's so horrible about wanting to
PAY for something? Didn't your worshipped dems once pass something called
"pay-go"? Of course, they conveniently ignore it every time they want
to buy votes.and as for the Utah and Texas governors asking for
federal disaster aid, are not their citizens also citisens of the US, with the
same rights afforded residents of other states? Don't they also pay federal
taxes? Oh, I get it, Utah and Texas are RED states, so in your mind they are
second class citizens and not deserving.
Amazing how we can find money to rebuild Iraq, but not our own.
