Some fire victims want more help
“American citizens need the government's help and they'd rather build a bridge to nowhere ... If this is the best solution the government has ... I'm not impressed.”

Some history of Bernat Mill. In August 24, 1953 edition of Time Magazine, the Uxbridge Worsted Company was written up as an example of one of the most successful textile mills in New England. The textile industry was already in decline in New England in 1953. Uxbridge Worsted Company manufactured the first US Air FOrce Uniforms in 1947, known as the Uxbridge Blue for blue dye color chosen there in 1947.

I'm sorry that the mill burned down. It was turning into a nice place to shop, visit, and dance.
I'm sorry that some of the people/businesses in the mill either didn't have insurance, or the proper insurance.
And I'm sorry that some of them want more than a small business loan to get going again.
If my company burns down tomorrow, and the people I work for let me go, I'm not going to get anything special. I'm going to need to either have to collect unemployment, or get another job.
It is a big deal to strike out on your own and start a business, but if you're unwilling to take the proper precautions, then take what is being offered and/or move on.
