Should Texas get fire aid?
Governor Perry and the Texas legislature are cutting funding for volunteer fire departments that are fighting wildfires. But Gov. Perry is looking forward to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) help to respond to the fires and help those who have been harmed.
Perry has been highly critical of FEMA and thinks the Federal Government should stay out of Texas’ business. But now he wants other states to pay for what he’s unwilling to tax his own residents.
Should Texas get FEMA help? Or should they just match whatever new funding Texas gives to fire departments? By the way, Ron Paul says there should be no help from FEMA.
