GOP 'Sinful' To Tie Disaster Aid To Spending Cuts

As East Coasters brace for what some say will be a historic pummel by Hurricane Irene, at least one lawmaker is fuming over a requirement by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) that any potential emergency disaster aid be offset by spending cuts. "It is sinful to require us to cut somewhere ... in order to provide emergency disaster assistance for American citizens," Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.) told The Huffington Post on Friday.

Richmond and Cincinnati Mayor Mallory Blast Republicans

This will have an adverse effect on African American families who have benefited ...

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Cedric Richmond (LA-02), Rep. Maxine Waters, and Rep. Emanuel Cleaver called on Republican leadership of the Financial Services Committee to hold a field hearing in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to examine the government’s response to the recent flooding in that area, and to better inform the Committee as it prepares to consider the reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which is set to expire on September 30, 2017. “People living outside of flood hazard areas make up the majority of the victims of this flooding and yet, because they did not have and were not required to purchase flood insurance, they will have to rebuild their homes and lives without the support that federal policy was designed to provide,” said Richmond. “With the large gap between what the flood risk maps showed and what actually happened when the rain fell, it is crucial Congress see first-hand the damage that has been done. "   The letter to Chairm
