A Reminder: GOP Cut FEMA, Corps Of Engineer Funding

Isaac accountability check:

The New York Times reminds us that Tea Partyish Republicans in Congress have forced cuts in FEMA and US Army Corps of Engineer funding - - the very disaster relief programs that will help rebuild the Gulf states when Hurricane Isaac blows itself out and that may help save New Orleans from another Hurricane Katrina-style catastrophe:

Screw it up so bad that you can say 'see, government doesn't work.' This is the GOP's plan, and FEMA and NOAA are far from the only 2 departments that they've done this in.

They are treasonous, and do not care for the well-being of the country. Their acts of the last several years prove it.

Wait. Isn't the Corp of Engineers planning a $100 million clean water fund program to benefit Waukeksa with it's Lake Michigan water diversion via Oak Creek?

Because FEMA was accused of dropping the ball in Florida, the media and Congress commenced to study this agency. What came out of the critical look was that FEMA was spending 12 times more for "black operations" than for disaster relief. It spent $1.3 billion building secret bunkers throughout the United States in anticipation of government disruption by foreign or domestic upheaval. Yet fewer than 20 members of Congress , only members with top security clearance, know of the $1.3 billion expenditure by FEMA for non-natural disaster situations. These few Congressional leaders state that FEMA has a "black curtain" around its operations
