In 2005 Mike Pence said: “Mr. Speaker Katrina breaks my heart. When I consider it’s tragic aftermath the ancient parable comes to mind ‘and the rains descended and the flood came and the winds blew and beat against the house and it fell with a great crash.’ For most American families when a tree falls on your house, you tend to the wounded, you rebuild and then you figure out how you’re gonna pay for it. Later today Congress will continue the work of funding the relief and recovery from Hurricane Katrina. And well we should by speeding more than $50 billion dollars to FEMA & other agencies, but as we tend to the wounded, as we begin to rebuild, let us also do what every other American family would do in like circumstances, and expects this Congress to do. Let’s figure out how we’re gonna pay for it. Congress must ensure that a catastrophe of this nature, does not become a catastrophe of debt for our children & grandchildren.”

All I can say is, it’s Mike Pence, just wanted to remind everyone that he’s awful & needs to leave office when Trump does.
