La. Gov. Bobby Jindal asks President Obama for more Tropical Storm Isaac aid

(CBS/AP) WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency in Louisiana on Monday as that state and others along the Gulf Coast prepared for Tropical Storm Isaac.

The White House said Obama informed Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal of the emergency declaration in a phone call. The declaration makes federal support available to save lives, protect public health and safety and preserve property in coastal areas.

Jindal, a Republican, shot back late Monday in a letter to the Obama administration that the declaration fell short of the help he was requesting.

"We appreciate your response to our request and your approval," Jindal wrote. "However, the state's original request for federal assistance ... included a request for reimbursement for all emergency protective measures. The federal declaration of emergency only provides for direct federal assistance."

Under law, the federal government can provide direct assistance at 75 percent of federal funding, with states responsible for 25 percent of costs, though there are exceptions for small, impoverished communities.

Jindal said the storm is forecast to strengthen to a Category 2 hurricane "and squarely impact the state of Louisiana."

Thanks Grey, that was very helpfull.

Just for fun lets assume that big damage is done,
and he does not ask for assistance, are you on his side?

His primary job is to watch out for his state, not his country. Seems like a messy position to be in. In some imaginary perfect world that only a democrat is capable of understanding how does that work?

yeah, he's learned a lesson from his predecessors, who not only didn't ask for help, but when it was offered, turned it down intitially. The governor and mayor??? Both liberal Dems.
Sorry, your point fails, as always. Nice try.
AND.....if he didn't ask and people suffered, you'd go on and on about the mean, nasty Republican that left those po' black folk to suffer.

ABSOLUTLEY ! He know's he can not depend on MT word's - Been Their Done That !

As a fact :

Resources are in transit as we speak and being stationed at strategic location's - He didn't ask and they are rolling.

TWO from my city alone -Much is being Pre- staged

As they say family 1st and only count on what you can see :

Never count on committees - promises or assumption's.

Mr.Jindal at this moment is looking over his flock :

Putting his State above the Notarity of showing face at the RNC convention

My take on this is that if the Federal government doesn't want to give back tax money to the states when it's needed they shouldn't have taken it from the states in the first place!

Here's Liberal Logic - It Thunder's

did not his people sue him
for refusing to take obama stimulos help?
The conservative response :

We don't need your Cheese - We do not want to be held in account for eating your cheese - we do not want to be in debt to you ----for eating your cheese.

We don't need Crack - We don't do Crack - This is a Crack Free Zone

We have LOT's and Lot's of our OWN CHEESE

Go find another corner to Hustle your game

You need to learn to make your own Cheese - instead of trying to game others out of theirs.

Now if YOU need CHEESE : YOU need a find away to EARN YOUR CHEESE " WE THE PEOPLE" -- may have some to spare

Where's the demand for offsets(cuts) that Republicons demanded when Hurricane Irene hit in 2011. Here's Eric Cantor on the record in 2011 saying relief will only go to victims of Irene if there are matching spending cuts.

When it's an election year, Republicons change their camouflage just like the shameless chameleons they really are.

Irene ? Well are you going Forward ? With Hope and Change? H'mmm

Here's what the Ole ( R ) is saying:

FEMA is almost broke and WHY ???

We gave you $$$$$ and you drank it

We gave you $$$$$ and you spent it on the Gambling Boat

We Gave you $$$$$ and you smoked it up

We gave you $$$$ and you bought $300.00 tennis shoe's

We gave you temporary shelter's - they were supposed to be temporary!

AND NOW YOUR HUNGRY ???

AGAIN ????

We gave you TOY's you didn't earn

That worked didn't it and you come home with F's ??

and talk naughty to US ?? It's OUR Problem ??

GO TO BED HUNGRY - and think about it

Dinner is at 6.00P.M. we don't run a all nite kitchen !!

Take the trash out and git your chores done -- or there's no breakfast and if you miss the BUS - your walking.

Great point. The problem is almost every state gets back more in Federal funding than they pay in federal taxes. The Red States are among some of the worst.

http://247wallst.com/2012/08/03/sta...-federal-money/

So go figure. BTW - Louisiana gets back around $1.50 for every dollar they pay. Not a bad return if you ask me. Oddly, the Libberul Godless Atheist state I live in gets less than we pay in taxes. Go figure!!??

(For every dollar Californians paid in federal taxes, people in the state received $0.83 in federal spending.)

most state money that goes to the feds is in gas taxes. Most money that comes back to the states is in highway funds. Rural states like Wyoming etc, have no population to speak of to gnerate high tax levels, yet have massive amounts of open highway.
Not bucking your point Psycho, just pointing out what the chart really means. Don't think it has a thing to do with income taxes, personal or otherwise.

What is Wrong with THIS Picture

Well MR.
Phaedrus:

Then you need to explain WHY your State of California:

Is $ 617 BILLION Dollar's in Debt !!!!

Now -Just HOw Did That Happen ??????

DO you believe the rest of the NATION should pay for your irresponsibility ???

California should be rolling in MONEY especially if they are paying 1.00 and only getting .83 cent's value back.

.17 cent's for every dollar should be in saving's. But it is a acceptable loss correct ??? They should be rat holing the .17 for a rainy day.

Not only did you not get your $1.00 worth - for product that you are being shorted - you have lost .17 cent's through a hole in your pocket. It get's away some how.

Then Worse : !

The State of California is upside down 617 Billion in Debt - by taking more than what the Citizen's of the State payed for.

Not only did you spend the .83 cent's and loose .17 cent's -

Through Greed and Gluttony the State has leveraged the value or products of California on credit - for which you have NO Collateral or physical value --to back up your NEED to " BORROW"

Will the Libberul Godless Atheist state take a CHECK ???

California's situation is largely caused by two things. First Prop 13 that destroyed the revenue flow to the state and our government by ballot initiative. California is a perfect example of what happens if you let the people who are motivated solely by their ideology and who are incapable of critical thought vote directly on new laws.

And I am not sure where you got that 617 billion number from (although I suspect it was from a place where the sun does not shine), but the current budget deficit is 16 billion. Still nothing to sneeze at, but significantly less than what you think it is.

As far as the Nation paying for our situation, your logic (as usual) escapes me. We get back less than we pay, shouldn't we at least get what we pay?? Or do you expect us not to get our share while other states (mostly Red ones) get back MORE than they pay?? Just who is supporting who??

Your take is incorrect, Louisiana is a Welfare State! For every $1.00 Louisiana sends to the Federal Government, it sucks $1.48 out.

Your take on Social Security is also incorrect. I personally know over a dozen people who are on Social Security, they have no problem getting their SS payments.

My wife and I are signed up and ready to go with Social Security, absolutely no problem. When we say so our payments will start.

I know that. I didn't want to go into why that is true!

My take on SS is absolutely true! The workers of this country have paid trillions into SS and that money is long gone and is paid back to the investors and a fraction of what it should be and could have been if that money was invested privately!

A Ponzi scheme by any other name is called "social security".

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!
