The Republican Hypocrisy on Federal Government and Federal Government Aid

The absolute hypocrisy from the right on government aid is obvious if one just pays attention. While denigrating the federal government as do nothing and bloated, the same people demand money from the federal government for emergencies.

Look at the MILLIONS of dollars FEMA has provided just in the month of October 2012, and the list is incomplete. Notice which states are receiving the money – red states. The very states that vote for the candidates that want smaller government, want to abolish or defund FEMA, the ones who think aid is socialism and immoral.
