FEMA tried to put us in drug den hotels, where shootings and stabings are the norm. Heard these flea dens were getting $1000. a week from FEMA . No thanks, I will save our lives by not going there and bring home bed bugs too !!

Just wait - Could you ever immagine what would happen if a Town had to file bankruptcey because of Sandy. heres a quick time line to take a look at... Storm hits 11/12 - 100 - 200 homes lost. 500+ homes dammaged 1/13 - homes lost - insurence claims + FEMA begins 6/13 insureance still playing games, FEMA unable to help 1000 people in distress. 6/13 property taxes begin to increase for all residents 12/13 200 people who could not afford their homes, because failed FEMA programs, failed Insurence agreements, Failed Mortgage company - not working with the home owner - people begin to walk away to let their dammaged homes.. block by block of emptyness. 6/2014 another 500- 700++ people who could not afford their property tax increase = after endless run around games looking for help - trying to make ends meet - give up - also begin walked from their houses.. ..? - Forclosures begin to happen all over town and sorunding towns who were also affected, Attorneys get hit with people filling Bankruptcies by 2015 - over 1000 - 2000 people - would have left their homes and walked away.. leaving towns to fall into Bankruptcey as well. This is NJ, something like this can happen... now it's up to the locals to avoid something like this from ever happening.

I was a Mitt Romney supporter when he was in the republican primary in 2007-2008. Not a supporter the last election. But I think I agree with him on 1 statement..FEMA is a waste of taxpayer money..It was a waste of money during Katrina..And will always be a waste of tax payer money
