I need help. Why in the world would only 49 Republicans vote for Hurricane Sandy aid while 179 opposed the bill?
Perhaps southern Republicans should remember that when it comes to taxes and transfer payments they are on the taking side while the northeast is on the giving side.
I haven’t seen the multipliers on this kind of aid but I recall the “return on federal investment” due to the Mississippi River’s devastation of Iowa was substantial. Oh, I forgot, logic, math and compassion don’t count among some of our Congressional representatives.
