View Full Version : Cantor Is A Heartless SOB!

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>WASHINGTON -- House Republicans are increasingly divided over whether to pay for a massive emergency aid package for those hit by the storms pummeling the Midwest -- an intra-party scuffle that comes at a time of a near-obsessive focus on cutting spending on Capitol Hill.

GOP leaders are signaling they will push to come up with offsets to pay for such a package, which could cost billions of dollars and has been proposed in response to a week of tornadoes and floods that have decimated areas of Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. The federal government typically foots the bill when it comes to responding to natural disasters, but Republicans in charge of the House say they plan to keep their message of fiscal discipline in line with their actions.

"There's not a question that there are going to be offsets if there is a request for a supplemental," House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) told The Huffington Post.</span>


Cantor said it is important that people "reach out in their hearts for the people who suffer," and emphasized that he believes the federal government should play a role in responding to natural disasters. But at the same time, he said, "We can find things we don't need to spend on to pay for it."

"I also think there's trillions of dollars of spending in Washington," Cantor added. "So it's about priorities."

Republicans have already identified potential offsets, Cantor said, referencing a draft Homeland Security bill that the Appropriations Committee approving on Tuesday that includes $1 billion for disaster relief. But their proposal -- drawing funds from unused money in an Energy Department advanced car technology program -- has only a slim chance of advancing beyond the House, given the program's priority ranking among Democrats and the White House. Critics also argue that $1 billion won't be nearly enough in aid to help disaster-stricken states.

And until it becomes clear if or when President Barack Obama will submit a supplemental request to Congress -- the first step in advancing emergency spending -- Republicans are left squabbling over which to prioritize as a party: ideology or necessity.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) repeatedly declined to comment on whether he endorsed Cantor's view on the need for offsets. He told The Huffington Post that, in principle, he doesn't answer reporters' questions when walking down halls.

"It doesn't matter if [the question] is easy or hard," Boehner said, adding jokingly. "It leads to bad behavior."

Republicans who control the purse-strings in Congress, meanwhile, were all over the board on the issue.

Rep. Jo Ann Emerson (R-Mo.), a member of the Appropriations Committee, showed The Huffington Post photos of her district under 12 feet of water as a result of flooding from the storms. She said an emergency aid package shouldn't need to be paid for with spending cuts but said she has "no doubt" that some of her colleagues on the committee will push for offsets. She guessed that none of them will come from disaster-prone areas.

"It makes me sad" that some Republicans are insisting on offsets for natural disaster of this scale, Emerson said. And in the case of Cantor, "I was disappointed. I need to take him to my district."

Still, she said she is hopeful that some committee Republicans will side with her in not pushing for offsets, particularly some of the newer members who hail from districts hurt by the storms. People have a change of heart on spending "all of a sudden when it becomes personal," she said. "My own constituents would be horrified if I didn't do everything I could" to get aid.

Democratic lawmakers from districts hit by the storms say it is bad form for Republicans to even be talking about the need to pay for an emergency package of this nature.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>"Where is his heart?" Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) said of Cantor. "Where is his compassion for people who are suffering today?"

"If they want to fight and quibble over the supplemental, I mean, they are heartless. What's wrong with them?" Clay said. "Nothing for the average American community. That's what they're saying: we don't have anything for the average American community."</span>

Some GOP appropriators demurred when asked for their views. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) repeatedly said he would need to see the supplemental before deciding if it needed to be paid for. Yet Rep. Mike Simpson (R-Idaho), also on the Appropriations Committee, said he had no problem supporting a supplemental without offsets.

"If you can find offsets, great. If you can't, you can't," he said. "That's what an emergency is, by definition."

The timing of a potential package remains up in the air; Obama has been on a weeklong, four-nation European tour and returns Saturday. He announced Tuesday, two days after the tornadoes first ripped through the Midwest, that he plans to visit a devastated region of Missouri on Sunday.

"I myself will travel to Missouri to talk with folks who've been affected, to talk to local officials about our response effort and hopefully to pray with folks and give them whatever assurance and comfort I can that the entire country is going to be behind them," the president said in London.

An administration official said disaster relief officials are still assessing the scope of damage to determine if and how much may be needed in emergency funding.

"We're monitoring the situation closely and will consider a supplemental request if the need arises," said the official.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>So now, I suppose these Fiscal Twits are going to hold hostage, the Federal Money, for these people who have lost everything, for their stupid, irrational, heartless ideologies.

Disgusting!


Republicans have shown us how much they actually care about Jobs, Jobs, Jobs! The bulk of their time has been spent on Abortion issues, and clearing the way for more RAPE.

They are out of their minds, when they say we don't have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem.

BULL****

We DO have a Revenue problem, which has contributed greatly to all of our other problems.

So far, all they have accomplished has been to prove to Americans, exactly what pawns they are for ONLY their wealthy contributors, and screw everyone else.

Sickos!

We don't have a spending problem, we have a revenue problem, because these nitwits think we can run a huge country, on a shoestring, and recover from the Bush Depression, and two wars, without raising taxes.

Spot on G. The Bush tax cuts and high unemployment has reduced revenue. The RWers on the board are always saying that the Govt should be run like a business. Can they name one single company that <u>doesn't want to increase their revenue?</u>

Wars have always been paid for by raising taxes.
When the Govt is short of money, it raises taxes, this is standard procedure.
<span style='font-size: 14pt'>What you don't do when you have a budget deficit is borrow more money and give it to the super wealthy!

The GOP want the bottom 90% to pay for this scam by making them work 2 more years before retirement and accepting lower wages and less benefits.

The oil companies who are making record profits NEED their subsidies say the GOP and vote against them paying their fair share.........no revolt there. No demand that these benefits be offset by cuts elsewhere.
But aid to people who have lost their houses, all their possessions and possibly loved ones!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Truer words were never spoken!

Easy to see, Repiglicans would turn this country into a shameful place to live, where those in emergency need, would be thrown under the bus, along with those suffering from catastrophic illnesses, the unemployed, which Repiglicans have already tried to throw under the bus, the hungry, and downtrodden.

While Repiglicans insure that Every Millionaire will get an extra hundred thousand dollars in their pockets every year, Billionaires, even more, and while Repiglicans continue to any block any oversight, or accountability from the very Industries, led by the top CEO, greedy, unconscionable and corrupt, top pigs across the board, while chew up the poor and the Middle Class of our country, and steal more, more more from all of us.

And it all started with stupid people who contended through eight damn years of the Bush/Repiglican spending, warring and borrowing spree, that <span style='font-size: 14pt'>the Deficits, didn't matter!!!!</span>


We have a revenue problem, AND we have a stupidity problem, in the flyover states, which is fueled by not only ignorance, but also by misogyny, racism, homophobia, hatred for their fellow AMericans, and a determination to dictate to all others from their BS religious ideologies, while they foment an elitist attitude, that those who are struck down by unforseen, unpreventable, personal disaster, deserve to lose everything, for not having been as SMART, as the flyover idiots, and for having failed to prepare themselves for the disastrous consequences of the FAILED POLICIES, of the Corrupt Repiglican Party.


Those same Flyover idiots think that all in need, should be content to live in a country, where only the wealthy, deserve any aid, or representation, and tough cookie, for those whom they think, are nothing but lazy dummies, who don't want to take care of themselves, so let them all just live on street corners, and starve, AFTER the deregulated, corporate CEO's have stolen everything The People owned thorough greed and corruption, compliments of Repiglican policies, which exploit the hatred and stupidity of the Bible Belt, the very region determined to be America's religious dictators.

Christians???? BULL****!!!!

That is not the America Way. We don't hold up a request for Federal Emergency Funding, hostage to spending cuts, when Americans have lost everything they own, in a natural disaster, and have NOTHING.

Not that I think you would understand that long honored and maintained principle, of American heartfelt charity and generosity.

Ed will probably say, they should have all had enough responsiblity, personal success, and money behind them, to replace everything they owned, and been smart enough to foresee the possibility that a Tornado, might come along, and wipe them all out, instead of buying all those flat screen TV's, and spending all their money trying to live beyond their means.

Right Ed?

Nothing. That is the way life works.

If you have your monthly household budget, and one month, your automobile engine blows up, and it's going to cost $2000 to fix it, what do you do? Do you just borrow some money? Not smart, if you are already in debt. And you can't just print money.

The only option is to find ways to cut back in other areas so you can cover this emergency expense.

Or, if you were really smart, you has a little bit set aside for just such emergencies.

But smart doesn't seem to apply to the leftists in Washington (or surrounding states)

you should not confuse government redistribution with charity. the essence of charity is volunteering the contribution. forced charity is an oxymoron. i guess when the state supplants the church, it does become necessary to force contributions. who in their right mind would freely give to government to help people in need instead of giving directly to the people or to real charities? Answer: no one.

Just to shut up the dumb asses who will , and I do mean will, try to denounce what I’m saying. Here’s the FEMA site: http://www.fema.gov/news/disasters_state.fema?id=48

Henceforth, any requests for President Obama to do anything about it, should be referred to your congressperson.

Fighting wildfires is not within the purview of the Federal Emergency Management agency. The Forest Service fights national forest fires, the Park Service fights national park and monument fires, and BLM fights national range land fires.

The Federal Government does not exist to “protect its citizens.” Check the Constitution – “establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty” – fighting fires on State and private lands is not a Federal power.

The Federal government does not give out any dollars in welfare to adults at all – cash for the poor is a State program. Foods stamps are actually a farm price support program; feeding the hungry is a secondary benefit. These monies cannot be lawfully diverted by the President to any other purpose.

Congress has enacted laws that govern when and how FEMA can spend federal money on problems that occur within one State – the Governor and the legislature of that State must act according to these regulations before FEMA can even send an estimator, and continued State action is required to keep money coming and keep local residents qualified to receive it. However, FEMA neither provides nor pays firefighters dollars – it merely provides water, food, clothing and shelter to persons made homeless by an officially declared disaster. The President cannot make FEMA pay, or not pay, for anything – once the disaster qualifies, FEMA covers what the statute says it covers – no more, no less, no politics.

If what you are asking for is not specifically within the bounds of existing law, you will need an Act of Congress, not a Presidential decision, to get it!

Very good, Gayle! You actually did some research!

When the governor of a state requests natural disaster status, who has the ultimate decision. How did FEMA get into New Orleans? The governor asked for help.
Governors ask Washington for disaster help all the time. Our governor recently asked for a disaster declaration after tornados destroyes a large area in the eastern part of the state. I remember the same thing happening when I lived in Florida after a hurricane destroyed Homestead.

But, more to the point...if, as you say, the president can't send aid to a state to fight wild fires, what authority does he have to do the same for a foreign government?

If Bush and the Repiglicans hadn't created the worst debts in our history, borrowing more money than all previous administrations, combined, we'd never have ended up with a problem, of any kind. We were in good shape, before Repiglicans owned both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue.

Cutting taxes, during wartime, is insanity.

Hiding war costs, in emergency finding, is sneaky.

Invading a country, that was no immediate threat, and had never attacked the United States on our shores, or even had the means to do so, was pure insanity.

Multi billion dollar subsidies, for corporations that are making and breaking profit records worldwide, and have been doing so for years and years, is pure insanity.

Launching an over a trillion dollar, prescription drug program, with no thought about how to pay for it, was insanity.

The debt ditch, was dug by the right, and the bulk of our debts, plus interest, are still from Bush and the Repiglican Blank check congress.

The banks, and the automobile industry, are paying back their debts. We'll be paying for those poor soldiers whose lives were destroyed in Iraq, forever.

The oil Industry, is making record breaking... worldwide record breaking profits, higher than anything in history, and Repiglicans are giving them subsidies, AND tax cuts, while they pollute the world, and make more people ill with their filth.

Republicans want to give more, more more, to all those who are already getting more more more, and leave the tab for the Middle Class, the old, the poor, the hungry, and the ill, all victims of the corporate fascist pigs, who Repiglicans have been giving away trillions to, for over a decade.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Enter George W. Bush and the now-infamous tax cuts of 2001 and 2003. Actually professing to worry that eliminating the national debt too quickly would throw markets into turmoil, Republicans again promised lower taxes, higher revenue and boom times.

Again, they were virtually unanimous, voting to cut marginal income tax rates mainly on the wealthy by 224-1 in the House and 48-3 in the Senate.

Two wars and a large entitlement increase (Medicare, Part D) later, no boom took place. At its peak in 2007, the Bush economy had produced roughly 8 million jobs (7 million of which vanished in the 2007-09 financial crisis).Budget deficits soared, topping out with the $1.3 trillion FY2009 shortfall President Obama inherited that January.

Somewhat to their credit, when pressed none of Bush's top-level Treasury people endorsed the supply-side delusion. Aggravated by GOP Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's recent invocations of the old-time religion, recovering Republican economist Bruce Bartlett compiled quotes from Bush administration officials debunking the idea.

"Will the tax cuts pay for themselves?" Edward Lazear, chairman of Bush's Council of Economic Advisors told a Senate committee in 2006. "As a general rule, we do not think tax cuts pay for themselves. Certainly, the data presented above do not support this claim."

Lazear's predecessor, Harvard's Greg Mankiw, has written scholarly articles arguing that the economic boost from tax cuts amounts to roughly 30 percent of government revenue forgone.

In direct consequence, the national debt almost doubled under George W. Bush, from roughly $5 trillion in 2001 to more than $10 trillion in 2009.

Also in consequence, every Republican leader now posing as a hard-line fiscal conservative -- Speaker John Boehner, Rep. Eric Cantor, Rep. Paul Ryan, and Sen. McConnell -- voted to increase the national debt limit at least seven times under President Bush. All of them, every time.

Ironically, of the present players, only Barack Obama made what he now calls a protest vote against raising the debt limit in 2006.

Under a Democratic president, GOP supply-siders are mad keen to give the wheel another spin. Republican House members voted 235-4 for Rep. Ryan's preposterous fantasy of balancing the budget by cutting millionaires' taxes by $1 trillion and downgrading Medicare to a cheaper voucher system.

So now the same posers vow to risk the "full faith and credit" of the U.S. Treasury during a fragile economic recovery unless President Obama agrees to deep cuts in the nation's social safety net. A mature electorate would have wised up by now. </span> </div></div>

All of these flyover Deficit Hawks, were silent the whole time Bush and Republicans allowed the critical debt situation to grow into national disaster, and that happened before the crash.

It's amusing, in one breath, they're screaming they want government out of their lives, while at the same time, their criticising government, for not getting the money they want to them fast enough, when their flyover states have their hands out for government money, AND trying to use Government, to help them to invade the freedom, and privacy of other people's rights, and seeking to dictate to everyone, according to their religious misogynistic ideals.

I'd like to know how many of these RW deficit hawks, would be standing in soup lines right now, if our Government, had stood back and just let everythig collapse. They are too stupid to realize that we would have had an exploded economy, without TARP, and without the Stimulus.

Typical RW Baby Boomers. RW social engineering is fine with them. Are they too dumb to see their own endless contradictions?

They want their cake, and eat it too. They don't call it the ME generation, for nothing!

These are the same Rah Rah War, jerks, that made it possible for George Bush to destroy this country, with his non stop lies, spending and law breaking.

Sid,
Since all the problems this country has were caused by Bush, in 8 short years, then our future must be absolutely rosey, now that he will never again be in that position.

So I have to wonder why so many people in this country do not believe that the country is heading in the right direction. After all, according to you and Gee and friends, as long as Bush is history, we really should be flying high.

Is it possible that Obama is moving us in the wrong direction, but so many of you are so obsessed with an ex president that you can't/won't even see it?

You guys are living in the past, ignoring the present, and selling out the future.

Wake up!

Then they said they would deny the bottom 90% of earners a tax break if the Bush tax cuts were not extended to the richest Americans.

Absolutely!!! AND, their ignorance has expanded since, as evidenced by their irrational expectations that our worst economic mess, threatening to be worse than the Great Depression, could be reversed in one presidential term, actually, less than that, since while they have been bashing this president since before he even took office, they then have tried to lay the lions share of Bush's humongous deficits, at Obama's feet, as they obstructed everything we needed to do to restore America's formerly health economy, which still suffers from Repiglican Social Engineering, with their absurd tax structure, and tax cuts of which the lion's share go to the top wealthiest in the country, which they deceitfully call, the Job Creators!!!!

Common ssense tells you that cutting spending, when we should be investing, is irrational.

That is exactly my point, Sherlock.

The colossal debts, were created under Bush, and followed by an economic crash, which couldn't have happened, without Repiglican GREENSPAN, who destroyed Brooksley Born, who was trying to prevent the crash, that she saw coming from policies ignored by Bush et al, as they were burrying us in debt, unable to effectively handle any emergency, well, including the crash, which Born saw coming way back in the late nineties!!!

Cutting taxes during war time, unprecedented!

Unprecedented borrowing.

Subscribing to trickle down, a proven failure.

The irratiionally low interest rates, Created by Repiglican GREENSPAN, to promote Bush's "Ownership Society" flamed the R.E. Bubble, the same irrational exuberance in the markets, which GREENSPAN referred to himself, which grew into the crash.

Repiglicans sucking up to thhe banks, the Health Inusrance Industry, the big pharma, and big oil, which has taken wealth from Americans for decades, more and more, as time went on.

Blaming the community Reinvestment ACT, and Fannie and Freddie, when only twenty percent of the foreclosures, were connected to CRA.

Being stupid enough to think that corporations could be trusted to regulate themselves!!!! DUMB DUMB DUMB!

Gee, Greenspan said he didn't think the banks would be dumb enough, or greedy enough, to put themselves at greater risk, with the kind of fraud they committed, and he didn't care about fraud in the markets?

Open your eyes!!! Repiglican economic policies, unprecedented spending and borrowing for years, pushing more and more money to war profiteers and the Grand Oil CROOKS, forbidding any attempt to lower pharma costs, HC costs, Oil costs, this is what you get.

Then, the right has the gall to whine about it, and the ignorance to blame the guy who inherited all of it!!!! Economists said, the worst legacy in history, since Roosevelt took office!

And who do the repiglicans go after????

Unions, teachers, education spending, the ill, the poor, Repiglicans ARE PIGS!!!!

It is the common sense part, of everything, that you miss, when it comes to the destruction to our country, from Repiglican Policies.

Watch what happens when the hurricane season comes into full force, this year.

Then ask yourself, who you want to listen to, The most respected Scientists in the world, or the Grand Oil Party, and the scientists paid for by Repiglicans, and the kock brothers.

I'm convinced, that until you take an interest in Science, there is no hope for you ever being able to accept what is going on.

Have you ever seen The shock Doctrine ?


Ever Watched "Gasland"?

Ever studied global Scientific studies on global warming?

Why do you think the Bush Administration, censored the studies, that WE pay for, on global warming?

Back to the subject, Cantor. He's trying to hold aide for those Americans, who lost everything, hostage to other cuts, that more than likely, will hurt others who are in need.

Fair? Not Fair? American? Un-American?

Suppose no Federal money had ever been sent to deal with the oil in the Gulf?

Let's use your favorite state to hate as an example.

Fully 80% of the stimulus money that went to WI ended up going to union organizations. It did not go to corporations. Same is true in most states. The states took the money and spent it on state union jobs.

Do you ever actually bother to research anything before you spout of like an idiot?????????
