It's not news that a GOP Congresscritter elected in the 2010 teabagger wave election would vore against aid for Hurricane Sandy victims. It is, however, news when that malaka is from Biloxi, MS and his district was ground zero for Katrina. Here's a statement from Congressman Steven Palazzo's office:
Congressman Palazzo fully supports a Sandy relief package that includes spending offsets. On the heels of a fiscal cliff deal that added $4 trillion to our existing $16 trillion national debt, we must ensure that disaster relief is paid for. He also hopes we will be able to have a much-needed national discussion on disaster relief reform in the coming days.
This would be hilarious if it weren't so pitiful. I *hope* that the voters punish him in 2014 but I'm not optimistic. Next thing you know he'll blame the Real Housewives Of New Jersey for his vote. Relief money could fall into the hands of Tree and Juicy Joe Giudice, after all...
In Palazzo's lexicon, E is not for empathy but H *is* for hypocrisy.
