I am not talking about donating tax dollars. I have and am donating my own money. You see that is the difference between a fiscal conservative and a liberal/socialist. I believe that it is my duty as a human being to give of myself to help my fellow man. Libs/socialists believe that it is their duty to take other peoples money/time/labor/sweat and give it away.

So based on a single paragraph you are able to identify me as a liberal/socialist? You're dead wrong buddy, I'm a Nazi albino witch who lives in Sherwood forest.

What part of "there is no money" do you not understand?

Bernanke can just print some more, wtf are you talking about?
He likes printing money and he's good at it, so don't worry.

There sure seems to be enough money for us to give Billions away to other countries.

We would have the money if we stopped giving it to the rest of the world.

People work their asses off and then people who've never worked a real hour in their life who were born into money give it away to other people to further their own interests because they have no real value of money .

To them our money is monopoly money. Why is it that only like 1% of our country sees this.

and continued reliance on the fEderal Government instead of our local and state governments is the other problem. The federal government is to be used as a LAST resort for issues like this, not the first phone call.

Btw our foreign aid budget is less than 1% of the total federal budget.

I'll bet it someone proposed not giving Israel foreign aid and taxpayer subsidies to American Zionist companies; Cantor would cry like a baby and call antisemitism.

GOP/TPM hypocrites! This war on the middle class working people will doom the conservatives in the next elections. Just giving the dembs ammunition like oblivious, uncaring fools.

Yeah, this is how Eric Cantor is going to balance the budget - by withholding funds for rebuilding Joplin Missouri after a disaster. Meanwhile, not one cent will be touched from the BILLIONS in foreign aid we give to Israel, not one cent withheld from the insanely high military budget, nor will he touch the BILLIONS we give to Big Oil in taxpayer subsidies. Good job Eric Cantor, you really know how to stick to the elitists in Joplin.

I guess this is what you get when you allow vindictive twerps like Cantor eradicate safety nets calling them "socialism".

why does it not surprise me someone like Eric Cantor would play politics with a natural disaster. Why is he playing politics with my city? what in the hell did we do to him? did he pull this crap with Tuscaloosa,Al?

Hey i got an idea for Eric Cantor, Obama is suppose to be here in joplin sunday, why don't you jump on Air force one and fly down here with Obama and tell the good people of Joplin why your playing politics with our city. I know he won't do it

you are wrong, there is money, it's just on a separate set of books they don't tell you about
and which they consider to be their money despite using the peoples tax dollars [other peoples money] to get the ball rolling.

NYC (just the city)is siting on >2.2 trillion Dollars of investment capital (liquid assets, stocks bonds etc)
the US-gov is sitting on >$64 trillion Dollars of investment capital (liquid assets, stocks bonds etc)

cantor [and many others now] is openly exhibiting psychopathic behavior

people have been hurt & killed

but he's gonna just sit on his @ss till he gets something in exchange.

the no money excuse is getting old now anybody with a brain knows that is just double speak.
no money for these poor folk but there is money for wars, for fancy suits, parties, golf for the pols trips, limos, and hundreds of perks like the congressional pension plan.

DISCLAIMER: the above does not include the income from criminal activities like the drug-war, and other black-ops schemes.

Seriously beyond words. This guy calls himself an American yet can't even be arsed to lift a finger to help his own countryfolk in need. The tax money to fund even just 1 fighter plane would be enough for a triage centre and food/water/medical supplies to last months and more.

I'd carry on with my own personal thoughts about this, but I'd likely be banned from ATS so I just hope either himself, congress, or Obama (when he finally gets back) see's some sense and humanity in this situation.

I can see where someone can go with this, in principle, but in light of the trillion dollar bailouts, and the corporate welfare, the massive "defense" budget, etc.

Well, let's just say, people shouldn't be able to get away with saying this. Someone should have the fear of death for uttering something so vile. Why there isn't someone waiting outside federal buildings waiting to knock these people out, is beyond me.

My new governor is the same type of useless trash. He wastes funds, and whenever he opens his mouth, # comes pouring out. Stephen King even stopped writing novels and had to speak-out about the dimwit, he vacated to Florida to get away from it, and was met with more of the same. They are goons, I don't know where they come from, but they are literally taking over this country.

Where is the moeny coming from to pay for it? I live in Joplin, and I agree with Cantor. We cant spend moeny we dont have. What he is saying is find an offset to pay for it.

Either way the discussion they are having is not having any effects here at all. We have massive amounts of resources here and slowly things are improving day by day.

And the senate approved 4 billion in tax breaks for the oil companies. All it took was a few million in grease money to the Republicans in charge of the Finance Committee to make that happen, but not one dime can be spared for Joplin, MO.


The tax-writing Finance Committee has long been a key target for oil industry campaign contributions, but mainly to Republicans, according to the Center for Responsive Politics in Washington. The industry contributed $3.06 million to senators on the panel in the 2010 campaign cycle, 77 percent of that to Republicans.

CSMonitor.com - Oil CEOs warn senators of downside to axing industry tax breaks

If I were a Joplin resident I'd tell Washington to keep their filthy money, just don't ever expect to collect another cent in tax from me again.

Meanwhile, another 700 billion yearly payoff for the military-industrial-complex, and how many billions, er, trillions. are we up to with the Mid East wars?

Besides taxpayer subsidies to oil companies, that the conservatives love as it is their version free enterprise we have this....

We can damn sure pay for war but the GOP whines and cries when even the hint of domestic spending is brought up. Hypocrites!

I was unaware that Republicans were in charge of the Finance Committee.
I'm pretty sure Max Baucus is the Chairman.

I'm pretty sure the Dems still hold the Senate, so the Senate Finance Committee should have a majority of Democrats, no?

Hold on, I'll check..
Yes, I was right.
13 Democrats 11 Republicans.

The Finance Committee is currently comprised of 24 Members – 13 Democrats and 11 Republicans. The ratio of majority to minority Members on the Committee is based on the ratio of majority to minority Members of the Senate. Senators are assigned to specific committees by their party conference. Seniority and regional balance are some of the factors used to determine committee assignments.

Senate.Gov

I'll assume that you meant to say:
"All it took was a few million in grease money to the Democrats in charge of the Finance Committee to make that happen..."

Just a typo, I'm sure.

On Monday, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said that Congress would not approve funds for disaster relief without budget cuts elsewhere. “If there is support for a supplemental, it would be accompanied by support for having pay-fors to that supplemental,” he said.

Agreed. I feel like an abused spouse with no where to go. I have been shown the light, repeatedly, and yet I still come back to the chance of peace and a warm bed. And then I get my face kicked in again. And again. And again...
