Solid Public Citizens

When NPR announced today that a hurricane relief bill for survivors of Katrina had passed 97-0 in the Senate and 410-11 in the house, I wondered to myself, "Who are those eleven people -the only eleven people in the WHOLE GOVERNMENT - who would vote against relief for people dying of the biggest natural disaster we've seen in ages? They must Hate America. "

Lucky for me there's a thing called the Congressional Record to answer the question. Those eleven are:

Joe Barton (R-TX)
Jeff Flake (R-Z)
Virginia Foxx (R-NC)
Scott Garrett (R -NJ)
John Hostettler (R -IN)
Steve King (R-IA)
C.L."Butch" Otter (R - ID)
Ron Paul (R-TX)
F. James Sensenbrenner (R - WI)
Tom Tancredo (R-CO)
Lynn Westmorland (R-GA)

What were they thinking? I don't know. Drop 'em a line and report back here.
