Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain disagrees with House Republicans over disaster aid for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). While GOP House members are holding off providing funding for FEMA’s disaster-relief program without offsetting spending cuts elsewhere in the budget, Cain just wants to see the money disbursed immediately, The Hill reports.
 
"I would make sure that FEMA got the money it needed, and if I had to go find the offsets later, go find it later. Stop playing with people's tragedies — these are real people we’re talking about," Cain said on CNN. "We’re going to have a gentleman’s agreement that we will find the offsets, rather than finding the offsets right in the middle of it and making it a political football."
 
The House has approved a resolution to fund the government, including disaster aid funds, but Senate Democrats oppose offsets in the bill that would strike funding for two green-energy projects.
