Tag: Richard Nixon
By Corinthian Scales, Section News
Candice got this one right. Well, partially right, up until she decided it's smart to start blathering for a Federal catastrophic fund to 'fleece' e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e into gummint subsidy.
Yessirree, it was Richard "I Never Met A Big Government Program That I Didn't Like" Nixon who mandated National Flood Insurance in 1973, further entangling folks to bureaucracy created floodplain schemes if you'd like a mortgage.
So, who were the Michigan Republicans that kicked the fleecing can down the road? Benishek, Camp, Huizenga, McCotter, Rogers, Upton, and Walberg voting in lockstep with nanny government entitlement Democrats Clarke, Conyers, Dingell, Kildee, Levin, and Peters.
And they still get their nose all out of joint with wondering why they end up in places like here? Go figure.
Anywho, a 'shout out' thanks to Representative Amash, for the much appreciated consistency. Candice, nice try, but thanks for your NO vote anyway.
