where is the flood aid money congressman. You have a majority in the house why cant you put pressure on the agency to deliver. If we had a democrat in the congress representing this area the OBserver Dispatch would be all over him to deliver to this area.Why so quiet .Quit blaming obama and start husteling for this area. Obama cant be blamed forever. This area is republican and shouldnt be taken for granted by the republicans.

You can't just single out Hanna. All of our elected officials have failed us. Did Gillibrand even show her face anywhere around here? At least Schumer and Hannah made appearances.

I am most disappointed our Uncle Chuckie. Mr Schumer is the 3rd ranking dem in the senate behind only the senate majority leader(Reid) and the senate majority whip (Durbin). He's a three term senator who sits on some powerful committees and apparently has no pull or power within his own party.

Shoot, both of our senators are democrats. With a democrat majority in the senate and a democrat president what good did it do us? Downstate got 30 Billion in aid after Sandy. Yeah that is Billion with a 'B' and now Andy boy is pledging 10 million.'Atta boy Andy, way to be there for the people. I'm sure there is more than 10 million in damage from the flooding, but no biggie. He doesn't need to carry upstate to win NYS in the next presidential election.

And since NYS almost always votes for the democrat in presidential elections, no pols care about campaigning here since republicans no they won't win and dems no they will win no matter what.

Basically they all suck!

As of his 2008 House financial disclosure filing, Republican congressional challenger Richard Hanna had investments valued at $750,000 to $1.5 million in two companies that could play a major role if plans to drill for natural gas in the Marcellus Shale region south of Utica move forward.

this is all that matters to our Rep. It reminds me of the Destito casino. Get what they sought out to get, and then they disappear. Bush is the worst example of a self serving politician. Him and his buddies made a combined billions of dollars, and it only cost about 7,000 American lives, 1,000,000 innocent Iraqis lives, and our freedoms. For someone who loved America so much. that he became president. It strikes me as odd that now he wants nothing to do with serving the American people.

What's this got to do with Bush?

Yeah, he's going to continue to be in the spotlight so people can keep bashing him, and trying to blame him for everything. One would imagine this is exactly why he stays out of the spotlight.

Hell Bush even goes out of his way not to criticize the current administration. You can't blame him forever. War for oil, haliburton evil, capitalism bad. Blah Blah Blah.

It's time to leave Bush alone, get over it. Your man won, and managed to break all his campaign promises and not accomplish half of what he promised. I know, I know the GOP is stopping him every step of the way, even though he had a democratic house and senate to start, and still has a democratic senate majority. I'm regretting my vote for Obama more and more each day. I'm regretting voting for anyone at all.

On a related flood note, at least Schumer put out a presser mentioning FEMA and the rejection. Gillibrand... Gillibrand... Hannah... Hannah... are you guys out there?
