I'm sure the House will get right on that.

The Democrats don't even try to hide it any longer. They know that the "Obama Gravy Train" is just around the bend. What ever the Republicans try to stop will somehow be tied to "racism" or a decrease in someone's social hand-outs. America has been allowed to become the land of tax-takers instead of tax-payers.

It's very sad that when a disaster happens and it doesn't effect the Republican districts, then they are opposed to it. We can pay for it now or wait and pay MORE when it happens again later. This is what the Federal Government is to be used for to rebuild our country in disasters. How much have we paid for hurricanes in Florida, tornadoes in KS, Al, Ar, Ga, Mo, Tx, etc. That's why we pay taxes to help Americans in disasters.

You need to re-read the article. The Republicans are against all the Democratic pork that fills up this bill. From the article its about $13B. There is another $17B for homeowners, where are the insurance companies? When my roof and siding was damaged from last summers severs thunder storms and wind shear I had to go through my insurance company to get my damage fixed

It is sad to see how "crisis" bills are so larded up. Money for salmon in Alaska, $$ for Amtrak, the Hurricane Center...etc, etc. I have no problem to help the folks, but loaded bills like this are symbolic on the deficit we are in. And I agree that the tornados in MO got zip, zero , nada from the Feds.
