Boehner and Cantor unsure about emergency aid for hurricane without budget cuts
If you're not part of the super rich or a corporate interest, you really don't count with the repugicans.
Cantor raised some eyebrows on Wednesday when, in the aftermath of the 5.8 magnitude earthquake that rattled the East Coast and originated in his district, he said Congress will help those hurt by the earthquake but will require finding offsets for any federal aid.Boehner's office punted when asked about this. Is it really that difficult to answer?
"When there's a disaster there's an appropriate federal role and we will find the monies," Cantor said during a news conference in Mineral, Va. "But we've had discussions about these things before and those monies will be offset with appropriate savings or cost-cutting elsewhere in order to meet the priority of the federal government's role in a situation like this."
Cantor spokesman Brad Dayspring on Friday declined to say where repugicans would look to make cuts to pay for a potential storm aid package.
