Eric Paulsen is NOT Minnesota Nice!

So far this year, he has voted to raise everyone's federal raxes, trash the economy and now deny Americans the ais they desperately need.

Nearly three months after Superstorm Sandy thrashed parts of New York and New Jersey, leaving behind over 200 dead, thousands homeless and more than 65 billion in damage, Congress gets to vote to assist these fellow Americans as has been done for every major natural disaster in decade.

Our representative vote NO!

Fortunately, the majority voted YES!

Well, you get what you vote for!

Why is it okay to steal my money to give it to someone who CHOSE not to buy flood insurance. How can you honestly believe that this bill isnt filled with pork? If you want i will name of them as there are many. Eric made a great vote and I am glad he stood up for what is right. He could of sold out and had some more pork projects sent to MN but he didnt. He has morals and he wont steal from other people to fund MN. He is nicer than MN nice!

Joey Stone, do you not understand the concept of the fire department? We all pay taxes, and people who have a catastrophe get help when they need it. The Tea Party Republicans who voted against aid for Sandy victims are happy to grab the cash to repair damage in their own states, such as hurricanes in Florida, earthquakes in California, and tornados in Minnesota. Paulsen is just pimping for the Tea Party vote when he runs for US Senate in 2014. Erik Paulsen is just Michele Bachmann in drag.

I am astonished at the leftard hypocrisy displayed in this "article". The Hurrican Sandy "relief" bill was stuffed with hundreds of millions in wasteful, ridiculous PORK which is so typical of democrats and NE RINOs. If there were any TEA party Republicans who voted against it, they should all be given a huge round of applause.
