Matt Gaetz Votes No On Relief Money As Florida Deals With Death, Hurricane Damage


Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), a Florida native and lawmaker, voted against a measure to free up millions of dollars in disaster relief for the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Gaetz was one of several House Republicans on Friday who voted against a resolution to allow FEMA to use up to $15 million from the Disaster Relief Fund, Newsweek reported.

The bill passed in both the House and the Senate, and it awaits President Joe Biden’s approval.

The vote comes in the same week that Hurricane Ian killed dozens of Florida residents, flooded communities, and destroyed homes and businesses.

Gaetz and other GOP lawmakers added their names to a letter that said they’d “do what is necessary” to stop funding the Biden administration, according to the news site.

3. Jesus! These people are absolutely in the grips

of Satan if you believe in that stuff. They actually think blocking others from doing good makes them look good in the long run. That may be true, but only in the eyes of those also in Satan’s grip.

7. President Biden should add a signing note (a la Bush)

"Nothing goes to Gaetz' Jurisdiction, per his request".

Just like the court did for the idiot who didn't want his student loans forgiven.

11. He's a Congressman. The "People of Florida" did not elect him.

In fact, he represents the most Neanderthal district in Florida, not that I wish to insult Neanderthals.

10. His district was't hurt much, if at all.

Why let them slackers down on the Coast have any help? Le 'em pull themselves up by their own bootstraps!

15 mil is chicken feed, too. Some sort of principle must be involved, here, it can't be a matter of principal.
