"Heartless" Just Isn't the Right Descriptor for Cantor

I decided to take time before writing about House Majority Leader Cantor's move to hold up emergency funding for Joplin, MO, in order to score political points.  There are moments when "offsetting costs with spending cuts" is not the phrase that should come to mind.  Joplin, MO had sections of it utterly destroyed, and the federal government is in a unique position to offer help quickly.  That that standard procedure has been stalled by Cantor, and that he has the gall to suggest that the President is a part of the reason for the hold up, is, in my estimation, just evil.  Yeah, I said it.  Cantor would be (and should be) the first person to lose his shit, if a Democrat uttered the same thoughts, while communities in his district (northern or western Richmond, for example) lay in ruins, desperate for all the help they could get.  And I would support him in his indignation.  There are just some circumstances when politics should not figure into the equation.  Cantor likely will never understand that.

Wow, another regressive thinker elected to high office in Virginia.

Is there anything more true to Cantor & Co. than holding the rest of us hostage to their righteous ignorance?

Maybe the survivors in Joplin, MO would find dwelling in the Superdome an increase in their quality of life? Let's ship them there because it worked so well for the resident of New Orleans in their time of need.

As we've learned, nothing ensures caring quite like having a conserative Republican doling out the relief aid.

I'm just sayin'...

And, we all know why Joplin was destroyed. Them damn homosexuals and the gay agenda.
Or was it the pact with the devil a-la Haiti?
BHO said it best when he said that the GOP's "Ownership society" really meant "you're on your own" ...
