Discussion: Obama Pledges Federal Help After Deadly Tornado

Discussion for article #222064

Okay, since this is Arkansas, first poll the people there, find out whether they’re government hating, posse comitatus red staters. Ask them if they’d like federal help, yes, it’s the government, want some help? Too many red staters have their hands out when they’re in personal trouble but deny the existence and importance of the federal government when there is no tornado or fire or flood. Time to challenge the cognitive dissonance that thrives in red states.

I will be waiting to see what Paul Ryan, Rand Paul and Eric Cantor have to say about financing this without compensatory cuts in entitlement programs, just like they did with New Jersey’s Hurricane Sandy damage. Those folks in NJ are still waiting.
