Rep. Blackburn (R-TN): "We're Not Going To Cry 'Emergency' Every Time We Have A Katrina"

Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is scary on so many levels. If you doubt it, check out the video clip below. Always she is obsessed with the money, unless there is a war to wage.

Now Congresswoman Blackburn seems to be saying, with incredible insensitivity, that we can save money if we don't go all out to rescue people during disasters like Katrina. The value of human lives versus the value of the money, it's truly no contest for true blue conservatives like Marsha Blackburn.

Let's agree that we're going to have PAYGO enforcement. That we're not going to cry 'emergency' every time we have a Katrina, every time we have a Tsunami, every time we have a need for extra spending, that we don't go call for a special appropriation that allows us to circumvent the PAYGO rules.
