“If there is support for a supplemental, it would be accompanied by support for having pay-fors to that supplemental,”
~Mr. Cantor, Virginia Republican
I want to call him heartless or indifferent to the suffering of others but the truth is he is worse. I think he is a psychopath and indifferent to the suffering of others. He lacks empathy. To play politics with the lives of Americans who have been devastated by a natural disaster borders on the criminal.
"House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) says no aid for Joplin without cuts"
"The horrific tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri may have also created a political battle in Washington D.C. The death toll from the tornado now stands at 119, making it the single deadliest tornado since modern record-keeping began 60 years ago. The financial toll is also expected to be high, with initial estimates putting damages at around $3 billion. Without significant aid from somewhere Joplin will simply not be able to recover from a tornado that literally ripped the town in half. Today House Majority Leader Eric Cantor signaled that the Congress may not be willing to provide aid without accompanying spending cuts to other programs." Digg.com
Hundreds of Americans have rushed to Joplin to help their fellow Americans who have lost everything, they are the heroes. They are there with tools, bandages, anything that they can use to help. All one can say is God bless our fellow Americans who stepped forth to help Americans in need.
