Brooks said taxpayers “should not have to fork out a nickel” to pay for property damage in areas historically vulnerable to storms.
"People have to protect themselves from the risks of weather, particularly if they live in an area that is periodically hit by substantial storms," Brooks said. "They should not expect American taxpayers to subsidize a vacation home on the beach."
I’ve been hearing on the news about Democrats turning out to vote for Obama in recent primaries, even though he’s the incumbent. So this morning I called up the Alabama Elections office and asked about it. They said when I go to vote on Tuesday, I can request a democratic ballot and vote for Obama (as well as various folks who want to be delegates at the national convention). So yay!
Reblog if you’ll be voting for Barack Obama this primary season!
