Sophie's Choice

Eric Cantor's generous offer to provide needed FEMA Disaster Relief funding amounts to a "Sophie's choice":  if you want this child to live, you must agree to kill this one.  The budget cuts that this man is coldly offering to trade off for emergency relief for those left homeless, cut off, lacking communication or transportation, jobless, are those that help the poor and the elderly, educate our children, keep our streets safe.

Not to mix holocaust metaphors, but Cantor puts me in mind of the Nazi dentist in Marathon Man.  Cantor only gets to keep the diamonds if he can take away our Social Security.
