Ron Paul: No Federal Financial Aid for Tornado Victims

Ron Paul: No Federal Financial Aid for Tornado Victims

Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, stood by his libertarian beliefs on Sunday, saying that victims of the violent storms and tornadoes that have battered a band of states in the South and Midwest in recent days should not be given emergency financial aid from the federal government.

"There is no such thing as federal money," Paul said, on CNN’s State of the Union. "Federal money is just what they steal from the states and steal from you and me."

"The people who live in tornado alley, just as I live in hurricane alley, they should have insurance," Paul said.

Paul said there was a role for the National Guard to restore order and provide care and shelter in major emergencies, but that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) led to nothing but "frustration and anger."

"To say that any accident that happens in the country, send in FEMA, send in the money, the government has all this money—it is totally out of control and it's not efficient," Paul said

Wild Thing's comment.....

What a horrible person. He has no sympathy for people that have gone through a natural disaster. WOW!
It is not like these people did this to themselves. And just to use their insurance will not be enough to recover. Entire towns were destroyed and many lives.
