Pallone Puffs, GOP Shrinks

When Will Much-Maligned Republicans Start Defending Themselves in Sandy Aid Flap?

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Frank PalloneNevermind that the FEMA disaster fund is well funded (by FEMA’s own admission) up until “early spring.” And the fact that “the Congressional Budget Office estimates that only $9 billion of the $60.4 billion proposed on the Senate side would be spent over the next nine months.”

Facts? Ha! This is Washington, D.C. that we’re talking about. Leave logic on the other side the Potomac.

Republicans have once again happily accepted a completely false, tiresome, politically-motivated Democrat premise; this time, that the House GOP is somehow preventing the imminent arrival of new Sandy aid. Christie nemesis and big government beneficiary Frank Pallone (D-NJ06) is leading the chorus of deceit…

Very little of what Rep. Pallone says is true, Save Jerseyans, and he and other politicians have a LOT of nerve invoking the plight of Shore businesses after voting to substantially raise their taxes.

But Democrats are willing to repeat it for political gain, and Republicans aren’t willing to defend themselves. That’s the part of this sad tale most capable of giving me premature grey hairs.

Sometimes I wonder why Save Jersey and other websites should bother if the GOP doesn’t care! 

Luckily for them, we love the country more than the party, so the truth must prevail. At least here if nowhere else on the planet…
