Cantor: Money First, Disaster Relief Afterward

Athenae of First Draft quotes Washington Times (sorry, no link to them from here):

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said Monday that if Congress passes an emergency spending bill to help Missouri’s tornado victims, the extra money will have to be cut from somewhere else.

If there is support for a supplemental, it would be accompanied by support for having pay-fors to that supplemental,” Mr. Cantor, Virginia Republican, told reporters at the Capitol. The term “pay-fors” is used by lawmakers to signal cuts or tax increases used to pay for new spending.

In other words, Republans say… to fucking hell with the victims of the Missouri tornadoes.

Do you really want GOP bastards like Cantor running America?

I wonder how far toward relief in Missouri we could get by re-purposing the salaries of the entire GOP congressional caucus…
