  •  What about all the personal money spent (0+ / 0-)

    on all sorts of things (many made by Americans), money that would never have been earned let alone dedicated to a consumer economy, had it not been for Democrats ensuring that Steve King's fellow citizens received the assistance they needed?

    Does he think it's a waste because he believes that the economic potential of those citizens affected by a disaster is smaller than the amount that might be wasted by providing too many services to those people?

    I'd like to think he does, because that would let me dislike him for being immoral and prejudiced.

    Instead, I'm forced to dislike him (and people like him) because he holds such a position of great responsibility and doesn't seem to care enough to apply reasoned thinking to his philosophies and decisions, instead he's letting himself be guided by an ideology that somebody else is giving him. It's infuriating.
