..........This storm is a perfect example of why we need FEMA. YES, Dubya screwed it up by gutting it and making it an ineffective agent of Homeland Security - remember Katrina! this one is bigger!
When a storm like this - and like Katrina - happens across many states, the most sensible & logical thing is to have FEDERAL people coordinating and working with state governments. Having no federal coordination makes as much sense as each state having its own currency.
There is NO advantage to eliminating FEMA - that is one reason why Katrina was such a terrible tragedy, and why (mostly Republican) governors were screaming at the time for Federal help.
For the Federal gov to block-grant FEMA, makes no sense - it would not save any money, and there would be no coordination among the many states feeling the impact of the storm.
Huricane Sandy is paying no attention to state lines! Go FEMA!
