Compassionate Conservatism...

Or conserving compassion?

Oliver Willis and Daily Kos report that there were actual Nay votes for the $51 billion package (H.R. 3673) for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Oddly enough, every representative that voted against the package just happens to be Republican:
Rep. Joe Barton - TX
Jeff Flake - AZ
Virginia Foxx - NC
Scott Garrett - NJ
John Hostettler - IN
Steve King - IA
Butch Otter - ID
Ron Paul - TX
James Sensenbrenner - WI
Tom Tancredo - CO
Lynn Westmoreland - GA
I would be very interested to find out their justifications. Chances are damned good I won't believe them, but I'd still be interested.
