The 37 Republicans that voted against disaster relief

This has been a rough year for those on the receiving end of natures wild swings.  Fires, tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes have taken a toll on communities throughout the nation.  FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has done well responding to the nations natural emergencies.  However, FEMA funds have dwindled to 350 million after responding to hurricane Irene.  Last week the senate voted on a 7 billion dollar funding bill for FEMA.  The Party of NO, true to form failed to stand up for Americans in need.   37 republicans voted NO.  The party willing to spend billions in Iraq and Afghanistan was unwilling to help hard hit American communities. The republican party which voted twice this year to keep 20 billion dollars of tax breaks for the oil companies, couldn't help Americans devastated by floods, tornadoes, fires or hurricanes.  
 I seriously doubt the 37 republicans that voted against funding FEMA are Americans.  Lets see their birth certificates
