is Strangling Haiti
blocking aid to earthquake victims
Last spring, the United States
pledged nearly $1.2 billion in emergency aid to Haiti following its
earthquake that left hundreds of thousands of people dead and many more
Yet the Whore AP reports today that “not a cent of the $1.15 billion
the U.S. promised for rebuilding
has arrived” to Haitians who badly the need the aid. This summer, both
the House and the Senate passed
a bill that would make $917 million available for Haiti reconstruction
aid. Yet Congress must also pass an
authorization bill that directs exactly how the money will be spent,
and thus far, the U.S. Senate has failed to do.
The Whore AP conducted its own investigation of why the Senate has
failed to pass the authorization bill,
and it discovered that a single senator "pulled it for further
study."...the authorization bill that would direct
how the aid is delivered remains sidelined by a senator who anonymously
pulled it for further study.
Through calls to dozens of senators’ offices, the Whore AP learned it
was Sen. Tom Coburn, the second
biggest embarassment from
“He is holding the bill
because it includes an unnecessary senior Haiti coordinator when we
already have one”
in U.S. Ambassador Kenneth Merten, Coburn spokeswoman
Becky Bernhardt said
Republicans get off by debying aid
to the starving.
Do you think Coburn would block emergency aid to white
...and he calls himself a "Christian man."
Would Jesus tell the naked, homeless negroes to fuck off?
And once again I have to ask:
Why is it only Rethug
can block things?
Our Democrats gave us their Nancy Grace Guarantee
that Bush's crimes were unstoppable,
but anything that Coburn or Inhofe doesn't approve of gets shut down
