Disaster Relief - Really?

I'm going to use Business Insider for this quote so nobody can call me unfair:
"Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction," Romney told debate moderator John King. "And if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better. Instead of thinking, in the federal budget, what we should cut, we should ask the opposite question, what should we keep?” When John King interrupted to clarify, "Including disaster relief?" Romney continued, "We cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. It is simply immoral, in my view, for us to continue to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids, knowing full well that we’ll all be dead and gone before it’s paid off. It makes no sense at all."
Now what I'd like to ask Gov Christie and the rest of the complaining GOPers is just exactly who was it they backed in the last election?  I know they think we're idiots with the attention span of a Mayfly but dayyyammm. 

I'm done linking but maybe some of the screaming GOPers would like to wind the timeline back a bit more to where their fellow GOPers were in the House talking about how disaster aid for the suffering should get done just as soon as they figure out who else to make suffer and they never mentioned the outfit in the business of making people suffer and breaking things... Defense.

I just got done listening to whiz kid Mad Money Kramer state that discretionary spending was at 70yr low and about all we do is Defense, SS, Medicare and then say that though we've got the oldest limits in the advanced countries that, well - SS etc is where you go.  Defense got mentioned in where we spend money but that was it.

I hate to say this, but the olds and poor will get the shit kicked out of them way before Defense loses a cent and the People will swallow this as the cost of getting business done.  Yeah, there will be a handful like me jumping around screaming, "foul," and that will be it and we'll get pointed at and laughed at.

Cripes, and now we've got the nonsense that Gov Christie is a fricking reasonable GOPer.  In that Party today, such a thing does not exist.  PERIOD.
