Which of these stories is from The Onion?

Tea Party Congressman Calls For Tax Breaks To Put Out Raging Wildfire In District
WASHINGTON—With a massive wildfire currently raging out of control in his district, Tea Party Caucus member Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) pressed Congress to pass immediate tax breaks Tuesday to combat the rapidly spreading blaze.

Or this:

House Republican Bill Cuts Hurricane Monitoring Funds That Help Save Millions Of Dollars
In the wake of Hurricane Irene, which caused billions of dollars in damages up and down the U.S.’s eastern seaboard, House Republicans are callously claiming that any aid to victims of the disaster needs to be offset by budget cuts elsewhere. The savings favored by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) would come from cuts to the Federal Emergency Management Agency and first responders.

Pretty hard to tell, isn't it?
