Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) wants to make sure nobody thinks the GOP has even one single ounce of empathy:

Let's agree that we're going to have PAYGO enforcement.   That we're not going to cry 'emergency' every time we have a Katrina, every time we have a Tsunami, every time we have a need for extra spending, that we don't go call for a special appropriation that allows us to circumvent the PAYGO rules.

Congresswoman Blackburn, you are wrong. Nearly 1,500 people died as a result of Katrina. The notion that our budget process should forbid providing emergency aid to help save lives in future Katrinas isn't just crazy, it's cruel and inhumane.
