GOPer: Future Katrina victims don't deserve emergency aid
Original post made by Conrad, Mohr Park, on Jul 23, 2009
Blackburn said "Let's agree that we're going to have PAYGO enforcement. That we're not going to cry 'emergency' every time we have a Katrina, every time we have a Tsunami, every time we have a need for extra spending, that we don't go call for a special appropriation that allows us to circumvent the PAYGO rules."
Congresswoman Blackburn, you are wrong. Nearly 1,500 people died as a result of Katrina. The notion that our budget process should forbid providing emergency aid to help save lives in future Katrinas isn't just crazy, it's cruel and inhumane.
