FEMA Won’t Provide Money To Help Rebuild West

LINK

But didn't Obama make a photo-op down there and say that the people wouldn't be forgotten? (Any link help would be appreciated)

ETA: Here's his initial statement from the White House:

Not Obama voters. He has no reason to help them.

If we aren't going to pay for man caused disasters, and Sandy was caused by man made global warming, then why did all that pork get sent to NYC?

Obama hasn't carried the state of Texas in either of his elections.

This administration is all about rewarding those they view as friends, and punishing those they view as enemies. Obama and Valerie Jarrett have all but stated as much. It's the Chicago Way.

re: FEMA Won’t Provide Money To Help Rebuild West
Is it possible that the FEMA is basically saying that a private company caused the damage and the private company needs to pay for it?

I'm not sure why the town's schools and other essential public services would not qualify for assistance. It seems that they would regardless of the circumstances that caused the damage. Does not make much sense at all other than government incompetence.

We’re neighbors too, we’re Americans too, and we stand with you and we do not forget and we’ll be there even after the cameras leave and the attention turns elsewhere,” he said.


I don't defend BO very often, but he never pledged monetary assistance in that statement. Also, why should FEMA pay for what is essentially an industrial accident?

I'm just going to go ahead and ask it: Why should West get FEMA money?

Pretend I'm 10.

Good point.

I had recalled that FEMA's charter also included "man caused disasters"
even though they are widely look at as being responsive to natural ones.

They did send plenty of money to NY to clean up after 9/11 and the world trade center "man caused disaster". That one wasn't very "widespread" either. It was pretty much all in a concentrated area.

With AGW there are perhaps less natural ones than in the past.

I'm thinking that Texas could provide an example of not taking fed money here. That might not be a bad thing in the long run.

They shouldn't. But wasn't FEMA involved with BP thing?

BP spill had a much larger impact on America.

I wouldn't say they needed to get involved there either though.

OK, you're 10.

Do those people in West pay taxes?

Are they not entitled to draw out some of what they put into the system if or when the need arises?

Why should we, the taxpayer pay to fix what a company did?

I would say that depends on hardship. I would say it also depends on fault.

In that case, is FEMA going to stop aid for wildfires set negligently or thru arson?

Does Texas have it's own disaster relief? I think only 4 states do, ours being one.

It sets a bad precedent if FEMA starts paying for accidents other than natural disasters.
