Take That, New Orleans

The congresswoman whose name sounds like a sneeze, sniffs at attempts to fund Hurricane Katrina reconstruction.
“Republicans have slashed* critical funding for child support enforcement, student loans, healthcare for children, nursing home care for seniors, and food stamps. This has been done in the name of funding hurricane recovery and deficit reduction, but it is neither. What drives this legislation are tax cuts.”
Congresswoman Achoo! isn't cutting, she's bringing home money for more 'vital' projects.
  • Bio-Info-Nano Research
  • Gender Specific Ranch
  • County Forensics Lab (remember when citizens of North Dakota didn't pay for this)
  • Dredging the Port of Redwood City
  • A Breakwater
  • Money to Study San Francisquito Creek (coming up on 7 years and still studying)
  • A Wildlife Visitor's Center
  • Money to Study Wetlands
Now we know the difference between critical and vital.

*The cut she refers to isn't really a cut, but merely slowing the increase.

It would be nice to study what to do with the mosquitos that will come with the wetlands. I had malaria once and I don't recommend it.

I call her Anna Gezundheidt.
Do you suppose we could get her to dredge the Palo Alto Yacht Harbor?
I miss all those El Toros and the Sea Scouts, and the watchdogs against pollution most boaters were. The excuses for closng the harbor were phony.

She should be ashamed. I'm going to contact her office. I really appreciate you, Mr. Squirrel.
