Not Boehner's finest moment. House republicans are a mess. No leadership, no clear direction.

It took Biden and McConnell to get this done over a handshake and pretty much lip-service on spending cuts.

Well, I'm sure his parents were proud of him when he learned to walk.

after the shitstorm they received from scrapping the vote on the Hurricane Sandy relief aid, the House is going to vote on $9 billion in relief on Friday and the other $51 billion on the 15th

Consider the tri-state area pays more federal taxes that almost every other region in the nation, it's probably their own money coming right back at them.

What do you expect for him? Libertarian's let someones house burn down because he didn't pay the $75 fire department fee before the fire. Guy even told him he would pay them right then and there but they just let the house burn down.

They only came out because the fire spread to a neighbor's yard, put the fire in his yard out (because he paid the fee) and left as the guy's house was still burning.

I guess this can go here. A photo of the moment Obama heard of the school shooting:



Certainly more dignified than this:

That's an extreme example.

FEMA is a disaster in general. Just look at Katrina. That's what you get from government. Expensive programs that collapse under their own weight. FEMA also provides flood insurance to highly desirable costal areas. What kind of people do you think live there, but poor and middle class have to pay the bill for the rich to live places they shouldn't.
