Like hogs at the feeding trough
Want to know why most Americans think of the government first whenever they experience the slightest sensation of need?
From (Reuters) - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is asking the federal government to reimburse the state for 100 percent of emergency costs for at least 90 days after Superstorm Sandy swept ashore on October 29.
Christie is asking the American people for a 100% bailout for the $40Billion in damage his state suffered in hurricane Sandy. Normally FEMA pays for the damage at a 75% rate and the state covers the rest, but Christie wants the Jersey Shore open for business by Spring and I guess $30,000,000,000 isn't enough to do it that fast, he wants US taxpayers to fork over the whole $40,000,000,000.
Politicians cannot resist scooping up as much free cash as they can when it's made available to them, regardless of whether it's the right thing to do. 75% isn't enough, I want 100%......politicians are all alike.
