RoJo: Cut lower priorities to pay for disaster relief; Here are a few ideas

  New disaster aid must be offset, GOP senators say.

Freshman Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), whose state has experienced minor flooding this year, agreed, saying the this year’s $1.3 trillion federal deficit simply can’t be ignored. “I think helping states in a disaster should be a priority,” Johnson said. “We got to find things that are less of a priority.”

Here are a few ideas, RoJo:  How about the wars and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan? 

Or subsidizing nuclear power?

Or paying for your Cadillac health care plan?

Just sayin'.
