So now he DOES want the federal government to pay for everything.

I guess we aren't supposed to notice (again)?

once you get some of that Obama stimulus package you gotta come back for more.

Sorry Bobby, it all went to billionaires' tax refunds.

Jindal, a Republican, shot back late Monday in a letter to the Obama administration that the declaration fell short of the help he was requesting.

It's nice to see Republicans be all bootstrappy and shat.

Give him all he asks and more, and make sure there is a bumper sticker on every piece of equipment that says "WE built this."

Damn, I forgot about that particular Epic Fail. If Jindal starts scoffing at the CDC, we are well and truly farked.

Let's be fair. Some of it went to jet engines the Air Force doesn't even want.

We will need offsetting cuts in spending on defense and oil subsidies.
 
2012-08-28 08:13:28 AM  
"We appreciate your response to our request and your approval," Jindal wrote. "However, the state's original request for federal assistance ... included a request for reimbursement for all emergency protective measures. The federal declaration of emergency only provides for direct federal assistance."

Is this guy for farking real?

It's not wasteful spending if it benefits Republicans.

Maybe the state of Louisiana could sue the RNC for praying the storm away from their convention and towards New Orleans.
Yes, yes, you can't sue someone for acts of God, but I don't see why you can't sue them for their actions which lead to God changing his mind and shifting his point of aim.

Why doesn't Jindal reject this blood money? After all, it's coming from a Democrat.

The Feds should do it, then tell Jindal that the extra cash came from cashing in their "Volcano Insurance". :P

Had a moron complaining about property taxes on FB a couple of months ago. I looked him up and his only FB post were about electric cars and how he wanted one. One week after complaining about taxes he was bemoaning how the town should put in free electric car charging stations.

An awful lot of these no tax types don't want to pay but they still want to get.
 
2012-08-28 08:18:42 AM  
Yes, these "small government" conservatives are shameless hypocrites... Thanks for the heads up.

Maybe Jindal can get some SuperPAC money to help him out.

With all the votes the oil and gas industry has bought over the years, you would think maybe they might pick up the bill for once?

Jindal should ask the RNC for help.

I love it, Obama offers boots on the ground, and Jindal is all "no no, just cut us a check for everything we spend!"

What's he planning on paying for? I would assume emergency personnel and supplies, which Obama's offering directly.

If I were to put on my tinfoil hat, I'd say there's some profiteering by some rich old men that Bobby wants to launder through this emergency.
 
2012-08-28 08:22:12 AM  
He doesn't have a hurricane voucher? He could shop around for the cheapest hurricane disaster aid assistance. He's got 24 hours to do it.
Bobby feels very entitled and loves that government hammock.
 
2012-08-28 08:22:19 AM  
OMG its for an incoming hurricane! What's wrong with you people?!
 
2012-08-28 08:22:26 AM  
I can see it now... Federal money helps rebuild the state. Jindal and the GOPers continue to attack Obama for the "you didn't build that," comment.

Nope but you sure are making it seem that way.

Step 1: Politicize a potential emergency.
Step 2:???
Step 3: Profit!

And then when Obama questions the spending, Jindal will claim he's abandoning Louisiana to the elements.

It's not hypocrisy if they do it, it's sound governance.

If the federal government bail them out, what will they learn for the next hurricane? Bend over and grab those boot straps Bobby.
 
2012-08-28 08:25:45 AM  
Still not as bad as Perry grandstanding about secession, and then putting a hand out when Texas had all those wildfires last year.

A lot of these Republican governors remind me of spoiled teenagers. You know the kind. The ones who tell their parents to go fark themselves, then ask for their allowance an hour later.

He is asking the feds to guarantee to pay for literally everything the state spends associated with the storm. This from someone from a statist party who openly mocks federal spending on important emergency related issues.

Give me a fracking break. He rejected the expansion of Medicaid, which also helps people in the state he governs. Not affording medical care is pretty damn tragic. Just not at "dramatic" as a Hurricane. It really doesn't matter if you are miserable because you lost your house or because you can't afford medical care you need. Sometimes the two are related, as well.

It's not fair to hold conservatives to their beliefs when it comes time for them to actually hold fast to their beliefs.

Conservatives are like petulant teenagers. They think they're an island of solutions and can do everything for themselves, know better than everyone else, etc, but the instant you actually leave them to their own devices when things get a little rough they have a hissy fit, start crying for mommy and scream that it's unfair that you're doing exactly what they asked you to.

I'm all for helping them with their little hurricane problem because, as a liberal, I understand how reality works, but I'm still going to mock the shiat out these knobs every time they come pestering for a handout as long as they keep up this stupid "GOVERNMENT CAN'T DO ANYTHING RIGHT, SHRINK IT, NO VOLCANO MONITORING!" garbage. 

Just don't waste my money buying bootstraps, okay guys?
 
2012-08-28 08:28:47 AM  
This shows that welfare just creates dependency; you give, they only ask for more. The evils of socialism can turn even the most bootstrappy of Republicans into a welfare queen.

I would agree. A Governor requesting federal help in the event of an emergency is sound governance. Complaining about federal spending later is just being a tool.
