Congressman, welcome, it’s great to have you here today.

Ron Paul: Thank you.

News Anchor: At a time when the Gulf is being hit by a tropical storm and is still cleaning up from Hurricane Irene, are you suggesting that FEMA is helping to ruin the economy?

Ron Paul: No, I haven’t said that, and I haven’t called for the immediate abolishment of FEMA, so I think that’s a little bit of misrepresentation. But when I’m asked whether I think they are very efficient at doing their job or whether we ever should have had it, the answer is no. But the hurricanes have hit our coast, I don’t vote for that insurance because I think the insurance invites more people to take risky behavior and put their houses where they shouldn’t be.

  4. The government is slowly stealing our power under the guise of help. It is not the federal governments job to take care of you from birth to death.
