      not enough disaster relief there for all the squashed flat or excessively hydrated communities, so some poor bureaucrat would be picking who got and who didn't.

      No American who has been bashed by Mother Nature or BP  should have to face that down.

      The gummint is supposed to be there for all of us equally, not just for constituents of  Rs who vote down money and then sneak in the back door like Vitter, wanting a share of the reduced funding, because their own constituents are also entitled to it, no matter what the voting R did.
