At a Republican primary debate last year, Mr. Romney was asked whether emergency management was a function that should be returned to the states. He not only agreed, he went further.
"Absolutely, he said. Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. And if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better."
Mitt not only believes that states acting independently can handle the response to a vast East Coast storm better than Washington, but that profit-making companies can do an even better job. He said it was "immoral" for the federal government to do all these things if it means increasing the debt.
What if the state response team is ravaged by the same storm they are supposed to respond to?
what else would he like to send to the states or for profit corporations?
Should we have 50 independent centers for disease control, with 50 different sets of rules, regulations, and operating procedures?
Or maybe have 50 independent aviation administrations? That sounds great.
