Gosh to here him say that enough wasn't done for the people in response to Katrina almost made be throw up.

Since he did this


MCCAIN VOTED AGAINST RELIEF MEASURES FOR VICTIMS OF HURRICANE KATRINA
McCain Voted Against Emergency Funding Bill, Including $28 Billion for Hurricane Relief. McCain voted against passage of the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations of 2006. It would provide more than $28 billion for hurricane relief, approximately $2.3 billion for pandemic flu preparations and $1.9 billion for border security efforts. [2006 Senate Vote #112, 5/4/2006]
McCain Voted Against Five Months of Medicaid For Hurricane Katrina Victims. McCain voted against an amendment to provide emergency health care and other relief for survivors of Hurricane Katrina. The amendment would grant access to Medicaid to Hurricane Katrina victims for up to five months; it also provided full federal funding for Medicaid in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama for up to one year; provided $800 million to compensate providers caring for Katrina evacuees; it temporarily suspended the Medicare Part B late enrollment penalty; and permitted states hit by Katrina or serving evacuees to access the TANF (Temporary Aid to Needy Families) Contingency Fund. It would be offset with funds unspent by FEMA. [2005 Senate Vote #285, 11/3/2005]
McCain Voted Twice Against Establishing A Commission To Study The Response To Hurricane Katrina. McCain voted twice against establishing a Congressional commission to examine Federal, State, and local response to devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina in the U.S. Gulf Region; and making immediate corrective measures to improve future responses. [2006 Senate Vote #6, 2/2/2006; 2005 Senate Vote #229, 9/14/2005]
McCain Opposed Granting Financial Relief To Those Affected By Hurricane Katrina. In 2005, McCain voted against allowing up to 52 weeks of unemployment benefits to individuals affected by Hurricane Katrina. [2005 Senate Vote #234, 9/15/2005]



Now this is a man we can believe in!

Yes we helped them by putting them in trailers that the GOP wouldn't put their dogs in. We sure did help didn't we. Open your eyes so you can see clearly fool. Oh maybe we gave the Money to Dick's company for rebuilding that its isn't it.

I guess you don't believe in any level of personal responsibility. When you are told to get out and you don't, what's to be done?

The Fed is the last player in a mess such as Katrina. Where was the state and local governments?

Remember that pic of all those school buses sitting there unused?

It was a disaster before Katrina.

That's what 40 years of democrat control in government will do for you.

no they don't believe in personal responsibility. didn't you read the post? the GOP wouldn't put their dogs in the trailers. maybe not now, now that the "refugees" have been staying there rent free for 2.5 years. I guess if I didn't leave the house for that long, my house might be unlivable too.

Some of you people seem really cold and ****ed up. The poor/disadvantaged/disaster-stricken aren't squeezing you. Other forces certainly are.

Oh brother keep your fantasy!! Blame the people but wait a minute McCain stated that not enough was done and they were forgotten "thanks in part to the way he voted". So blame him too and while your at it blame the people of the USA for the War and those cost too. The Gov't screwed up Katrina from the Start. "You Stated it was a disaster before Katrina" Hopefully the next administration won't say that if something like that happens in your State. Your heartless

poor and disadvantaged? this is a media illusion. poverty, for the most part, is a choice. I am not talking about the people who were displaced, took the help and got back on their feet. I am talking about the moochers. the ones who abused FEMA. don't you remember all the FEMA debit cards they blindly gave out? all the people who took advantage of them?
