Frustration flooded storm-battered parts of New York on Tuesday as Congress seemed ready to allow yet another day to pass without approving badly needed disaster aid.

October 30, 2012
More than 7,400 Citizen-Soldiers and -Airmen had been mobilized in 11 states to respond to Hurricane Sandy by 4:30 a.m. today, and more were on the way.
National Guard assistance to local first responders and the Federal Emergency Management Agency included support at evacuation shelters, route clearance, search and rescue, and delivery of essential equipment and supplies. Here is why the so called teabaggers are pissed off, its not about how much we give for Hurricane Sandy relief it is what is attached to theRelief fund that the Sandy victims will never get,, read what is attached to this ridiculous 60.4 billion relief bill....I am all in favor of giving releif where relief is due but this adminstration is tacking on easy money to different people and organizations
The focus of National Guard missions was quickly shifting to recovery in the aftermath of the storm.
As the storm, now downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, made its way farther inland and continued to wreak havoc, states of emergency were declared by the mayor of the District of Columbia and the governors of 12 states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia.
Guard members were assembling and staging in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island and Virginia, according to the National Guard Coordination Center, which monitors the response spearheaded by the states.
More than 85,000 National Guard members are available to assist civilian authorities in potentially affected states in support of relief efforts. Available National Guard resources include almost 140 rotary-wing aircraft to perform search and rescue, reconnaissance, and personnel or cargo-carrying missions.
Critical equipment available from the National Guard also includes 75 Zodiac boats, 3,125 high-water vehicles, 43 reverse osmosis water purification units, 3,535 generators and 726 debris-clearance vehicles.
President Obama has now issued emergency declarations for Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. The President's action authorizes FEMA to coordinate all disaster relief efforts to provide assistance for required emergency measures to save lives and to protect property and public health and safety.
Currently, more than 1,500 FEMA personnel are positioned along the East Coast working to support disaster preparedness and response operations, including search and rescue, situational awareness, communications and logistical support.
FEMA is only allocated $3.6 billion for relief efforts,which is there.
Quit trying for an alibi for the worst ever congress and the "wannabe" teabagger John Boner.
The inept "worst ever" teabagger congress has the responsibility to allocate additional funding.
All this time and you still don't know how your government operates?
Of course not, you get your history and civics from FAUX news.
Poor teabagger.
Read what your glorious president has attached to the 60.4 billion dollars of Hurricane sandy victims bill....Not all the money is going to Hurricane releif,,,,

Hmmm, when aid was slow to reach Katrina victims, it was all the president's fault.
What changed?
Nothing.

The congress and Bush had the measure allocated and a bill signed within 10 days of the Katrina landfall.

It was how the money was used after it got there and the incompotent people Bush put in charge that was George's fault.

Thad Allen was incompetent? He was in charge within 10 days of the storm.........

Was Brownie more or less incompetent than Nagin and Blanco?

No, the narrative was "Bush's fault" and that was that. Obama is off the hook for less action after a storm that caused half the damage.

Maybe it's just that Obama just "doesn't care about white people"

He has done what he could do within HIS power, he can't also do what's within congress's power.

Many east-coasters build overtaxed homes on low-lying land that is known to be at the center of massive periodic storms. Although this provides plenty "snob appeal" for insecure home owners, after these catastrophic storms demolish their improvidently built homes, they moan and groan that taxpayers should "help them" once the inevitable happens.
Hard working overtaxed Americans include decent non-tobacco smokers of good-will as well as overtaxed Americans who enjoy the simple worker ("middle") class pleasure of using an occasional tobacco product.
When was the last time organized groups of owners of homes that have been built on low lying land demanded the Government stop abusing decent tobacco users and non-tobacco users of good-will - including hard working owners of neighborhood beer joints and restaurants?
I have never heard of ANY organized resistance to this tyranny from those who now are demanding that decent non-tobacco smokers of good-will, as well as decent tobacco users, be taxed to rebuild their homes - homes that in all likelihood would only be washed away once the next catastrophic storm hits. Far from it. In fact, election results clearly show that most of them wholeheartedly support Mayor Bloomberg's abuse of the ordinary minority who pay taxes.
Let the moaners and the groaners rebuild their OWN homes.

I agree. Obama's traitorous pal, Christie, trashes the leadership of his own party, comparing well-heeled New Englanders (White "Liberals") whose homes were destroyed as a result of building them on low-lying land that is known to suffer periodic massive storm damage with New Orleans Africans.

For self-serving political reasons, Christie compares his White "Liberal" pals to Katrina victims. Katrina victims, though, were primarily Africans. Africans are wards of the taxpayer and it is a given that the overburdened taxpayer should be charged to rebuild the homes of Africans when periodic storm damage to New Orleans floods African areas of that city.

The now moaning and groaning New York and New Jersey White "Liberals" were offered flood insurance that would have compensated their losses, but because the threat was so evident, premiums were high. The White "Liberals" chose not to purchase that insurance. Now these White "Liberals" who refused to pay insurance premiums want the taxpayer to rebuild their homes.

A compromise should be offered that would satisfy not only Christie and his pal Obama, but the overburdened taxpayer as well. One proposal being put forth woulddo just that. The proposal is for every taxpayer $Dollar paid out to uninsured White "Liberals", an equal amount of taxpayer support for the Africans should be cut. That is a commonsense solution that should make everyone happy.
