Bill Maher: 'Unfair' for states like Texas to request federal aid after Harvey

HBO host Bill Maher complained that it "seems a little unfair" for residents of conservative states like Texas to rely on federal assistance in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

"These places that got flooded, like Texas, okay, they have a low tax base," Maher said on his show "Real Time" on Friday. "So, the federal government bails them out. Their governors, their legislators they don’t believe in climate science."

"It seems like the responsible folks in this country, the people who pay a little more taxes and the people who believe in climate change are bailing out the people who hate government, except when they need government when they’re in trouble," he continued. "That seems a little unfair."

“Suddenly, socialism is not such a bad idea when you’re standing in toxic floodwater.”

Bill Maher.

Not to mention that Trump cut the FEMA budget.LOL. Now these conservative states are "begging" for welfare from the too big Government. These same people from the Gay Ole Party (GOP) voted against aid for Superstom Sandy that hit the NorthEAST. But the ants on this forum believe they are reublicans when they cant put two nickels together.
Listen to these hypocrites:


here is Ted Cruz being hypocritical:

Tell Bill to put the pipe down.

Texas pays Federal tax.
Texas produces a Large percentage of the Nations oil.
What does Bill produce ?
Comic Commentary with such a Liberal biased slant that skiers would plummet on the slope angle of bias.
I tolerate Bill.
Bill is somewhat of a Realist for a Liberal.

If the choice is between Bill and the poorest county in Texas, bye Bill !

Ted Cruz isn't being hypocritical. He voted down the Sandy package not because he didn't want to support the emergency, but because other lawmakers had stuffed it so full of pork money for their own districts (that were unrelated to Sandy) that it was unrecognizable as a relief package.

The more you know.....

Which of the 2 designs will you use on the Cat. Cracker in your " cleaner Refineries"?
Having worked for Chicago Bridge & Iron the patent holder for the most popular design, i am curious.

If you are suggesting more refineries be built in Kalifornia, you are quite a comedian......
Lets put them in earthquake prone Kalifornia and run pipelines OVER the Rocky Mountains !
Yes. And the reboiled condensate can pool against the mountains !
Smog stops global warming !
No solar thermal heat rise if sun cant penetrate !
Substantial Geo Engineering chem trail savings !

You got no money to give when you are a net Taker

Of course refineries could be build in Kali. There's the real estate, there's the money. What's also there is a militant hate of anything related to the petroleum industry in a state that is near the top of the list of petroleum consumers. A new refinery wouldn't be approved by the Kalifornia Politburo.

I'm sure if it's done right people will get on board

Once again, Bill Maher proves he doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground.

As of 2015, Texas is #2 in the amount of taxes paid to the Federal government, California being #1.
