Or in the case of Congressman Cantor, FEMA Dollars spent should be replenished by cuts or allocations elsewhere in the budget. 
Supporters point  to  the pertinent role the  federal government plays an  in catastrophic events, a mandate that is heightened after almost every natural event resulting in loss of property and life .They point out  Local and state governments don't have the resources to respond on such a grand scale. such as a Hurricane Andrew.
Well FEMA is rapidly  reaching the point of insolvency itself, thus the the argument over funding by Cantor and the like. 
Oppositionist  quickly   point to FEMA'S most famous miscues, most notably, those  that were highlighted under the Hurricane Katrina Fiasco.
To be sure, FEMA has  gotten itself on the bad side of citizens, the media, and some of the very politicians that once heralded it by some of its more  ostensible bureaucratic blunders and on the spot decisions.
And FEMA has done some good as well.
