    Sounds like house republicans are more concerned about getting re-elected than cutting the budget. All the disaster money is headed towards red states, so naturally the congressman want to be able to tell their constituents "Hey! Look what I did for you, vote for me again!" instead of "LOLZ you guys don't deserve this money tough times".

    The problem with ignoring Ron Paul is that he makes it so easy to do.
