"Freshman House Republican Nan Hayworth's New York district was one of the hardest hit by Hurricane Irene, but the congresswoman seems to be working against her own interests by holding disaster relief hostage in a effort to slash federal spending, according to a recent report. ... The lawmaker pledged to only vote for additional disaster relief funds if they were offset by cuts to 'non-defense discretionary spending.'" [editor's note: She sounds at least principled, up until the last phrase; their refusal to put DOD on the chopping-block will be the end of these dumbass GOPers! - SAT] (09/01/11)
