re: Angry New Yorkers say Obama pledge to cut red tape ignored by FEMA (Posted on 12/2/12 at 9:24 am to Poodlebrain)
quote: Why are they pissed at FEMA? It wasn't FEMA who promised to cut the red tape. FEMA has to follow the rules on the books.
This is very true, money can be pushed out to an extent early on but the truth is there have to be checks and balances (red tape) and this takes time. The reality is that these people are starting to see the frustrating part of a catastrophe where it takes much longer than expected to do everything...
