(New York Daily News)   If you're a victim of Hurricane Sandy and you think you're going to get federal aid soon, think again. Subby's not asking for it, but the people living in his house, who lost their homes are getting a little antsy   (nydailynews.com) divider line 24

He should have just stayed in D.C, so people like you could bash him for not caring.

Normal people don't give a fark what sore losers like you think.

Because he's totally the one that's preventing the aid from getting to NJ.

Totally.

Shadowknight: While I'm glad my wife will still get a paycheck and we will be able to pay our bills, that's freaking sick. God knows you could cut a jet or two and pay the military members, but that won't happen.


The Pentagon WANTS their budget cut. The House GOP says no. Go figure. Because the military contractors say no.
I have no problem with my tax dollars helping you and yours temporarily in times of crisis. That's the American spirit, we help each other out. I think people are getting it again after the years of greed and hypocrisy. Taxes aren't too high, wages are too low. I can barely afford to live not because too big a chunk is going to the government, but because too big a chunk is going into some CEOs pocket. Yes, profit is good, but when you fark people over so they can't buy your product, what the hell are you going to do next?
Anyway, no point in going on. I hope now that 12/21/2012 has come and gone people will slowly get their minds back and off the hoarding mentality.
Gotta have hope.

Elephantman: So if I don't carry insurance, the Govt. will give me free money? SWEET!
[4.bp.blogspot.com image 581x333]
Hey , Rodgers...SUCK IT!


That would be a smart move for any country. Make insurance part of societys responsibilities paid for by taxes.
As it is now everyone who owns a house or a car or a body really, really, really should be insured (and sometimes have to be by law) meaning it sort of already is a extra tax; but a tax paid to a private party that makes huge profits. If the state instead took over the responsibilities we'd need to pay more taxes, sure, but since we're not paying the insurance companies' overheads we'd pay less total.

cretinbob: Remember , The Republicans don't want them to get any disaster aid.

That part of their plan to avoid the "Fiscal Cliff" that they actually voted for.


Riiiiiight. Propose to cut some funding from a single program that, in some limited circumstances, can provide a small amount of disaster aid -- Rethuglicans don't want you to get ANY AID AT ALL!

Uh-huh. Right.

Looks like Joplin has received $250M in federal aid, if you read up on it:

Joplin Receives Federal Aid

So please stop saying Joplin received no federal help. This is not true.

pciszek: GAT_00: Yep. Cantor blocked all aid to Joplin after the tornado there too, and to the best of my knowledge that block was never removed.

Seriously, Joplin never got any aid? That is sick.


Seriously, what do you not understand about the concept of INSURANCE!!!

TV's Vinnie: Funny how whenever there's a disaster anywhere else in the world, we always seem to send tons of aid (even to Iran after their Earthquake, in which they told us "DEATH TO THE GREAT SATAN!" as their thank-you), yet anything equally disastrous that happens in the US, people are told to get bootstrappy and DIAF.

I call it the "Pizza Hut Doctrine", where Pizza Hut only allows the fun and interesting variations of pizza in foreign markets only, but all we get here in the US to chose from is "crap disc A" or "crap disc B". It's like they value people in other countries over it's own citizens here.

SuperT: KiwDaWabbit: I can't wait for all of the people who make $30K a year (not that there's anything wrong with that, 'cause there's not) get outraged because their taxes for when they plan on making $450K a year or more are gonna get raised.

I currently make 30k a year. I'm having a hard time finding people who make 500k trading incomes with me so they can have my lower tax liability.


Yeah, not meant to be a slight on you...just those who constantly vote against their own interests

We have people up here in Vermont that are still waiting on their approved aid from Irene.

and I'd like to see the inside. iirc the inside is gutted. The outside is severely damaged. Yes it's very impressive, and as a Gulf Coaster myself I know with the proper building it can be done.
But having over built the barrier islands still causes hella problems.

GAT_00: It probably cost half a million more to do that.


Try less than $100K.  Most of the cost comes from the reinforced steel columns, deep bore concrete foundations, shatter resistant windows and labor to install the metal strapping.

Another article I read suggested that Republican Congressmen want the states to pick up more of their own disaster related bills.  If they feel the pain, perhaps they will be a little more wise about how they allow building in areas prone to both coastal and inland flooding.  It is just another target of their "starve the beast" mentality.

I'm sympathetic to the people pummeled by Sandy, but I am also tired of seeing the feds shell out billions for people's stupid building mistakes.

EvilEgg: Shadowknight: GAT_00: Shadowknight: We'll duh, subby, there's important political grandstanding to do over the fiscal cliff first. Tell your house guests to get more bootstrappy.

And Republicans have publicly declared that victims of a disaster don't deserve any help.

I had not heard anything about this, but it scares me that I am unsurprised.

And since they are in D territory it is hard to scare the GOP into helping them.


I also suppose they are hoping Obama gets the blame for that too? The American Right is a beast that should not be.
