The Landrieu Doctrine: Putting politics ahead of Americans coping with disasters by blocking much-needed FEMA funds and threatening a government shutdown, then blaming the very people who passed legislation that would responsibly accomplish both.
House Republicans have passed a Continuing Resolution that doubles President Obama's own request for emergency disaster aid and keeps the government operating through November 18th at the levels agreed to by Leader Reid, Senator Schumer and the Administration during the debt limit debate. But this past Friday, nearly every single Senate Democrat endorsed the “Landrieu Doctrine” and voted to table the House Republican CR for political reasons, denying millions of Americans of much needed disaster aid.
