Ron Paul: Some federal disaster response is okay


After calling for cuts to FEMA over the past weekend, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) appeared on Anderson Cooper 360 Monday night and was asked if he wanted to get rid of the agency entirely.

Host Cooper told the Texas congressman about FEMA’s body recovery team preventing more casualties from Hurricane Katrina that likely would have occurred if there was no federal response, but Paul was steadfast towards his critique on the agency.

“Well, the thing of it is, you create more hazard by the government by saying, ‘You pay this and the government will be there, they’ll always be there to take care of you and pay your bills,’” he said. “But the worst part of this is the economical consequences of saying, ‘Well I can’t afford my insurance.’”
