Steve King: Hurricane Sandy Aid Must Have Strings…
What can this creep say that he hasn’t already tried or already said? This vile petty creature is who you truly vote for when you vote GOP these days. Creep is too nice a word. Welfare Cadillac dog whistle once again. Iowa? What are you on?
WASHINGTON — Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said on Tuesday that federal aid for people impacted by Hurricane Sandy should be approved only with a specific spending plan in place so funds are not used for “Gucci bags and massage parlors,” like after Hurricane Katrina.
“I want to get them the resources that are necessary to lift them out of this water and the sand and the ashes and the death that’s over there in the East Coast and especially in the Northeast,” King said during a Tuesday evening debate in Mason City, Iowa.
“But not one big shot to just open up the checkbook, because they spent it on Gucci bags and massage parlors and everything you can think of in addition to what was necessary,” he said later, referring to Hurricane Katrina.
