    Another way for Obama to buy votes for the next election. Free money, the Democratic way to reelection.

    • Mr. President

      Not my only way Joe. I use welfare payment, food stamps, create green jobs. Promote obsolete Unions. I have many ways to buy the vote. I'm just getting started. Win by fear. The Democratic Party way to reelection.

    Or President Obama wants to help the american people rebuild? And with a jobs act help them back to work?
    Perry surely jumped on it after crying about FEMA. 252 counties out of 262.

    The fear is really if republicans get the congress again with the next vote. Armeggeddon. Preaching for the people but doing little to help the American middle class. What has the republicans done for the past 10 years? NOTHING.
    What have they done for the rich. EVERYTHING.
    The middle class that votes republican votes against yourselves.
