McGrath described how he personally met with Obama over a month ago and was reassured by the president that he would “cut the red tape” and get relief to New Yorkers quickly, and yet he only got power restored to his home last night. When McGrath e-mailed FEMA about the loss of one of his three cars, he got an e-mail back asking why he needs three cars..
“I want you to come back to my address on Staten Island with my borough president and any other politician and tell me to my face why you’re putting this pork in this bill and not helping us, the victims and the middle class of Sandy. If this was some other area, a low-class area, they’d be helping them. But it’s the middle-class, working people that keep getting the finger here.”
New Yorkers and New Jerseyans hurt by Hurricane Sandy are still waiting for the federal government to take action and provide swift relief to their areas. Much of the ire this week has been contained to the inaction taken in Congress, but a Staten Island resident on Sean Hannity‘s show tonight made President Obama the subject of his anger, saying that Obama has not fulfilled his promise to cut the red tape, and his area “keep[s] getting the middle finger” from the president.

    The inconvnient truth is the victims are primarily white so they are on their own with this administration.

    The first problem here is why would anyone in their right mind believe anything that came out of Obama's mouth.

    Quite probably...then again, anyone that thinks Oblahblah's line about cutting red tape wasn't said for the cameras has to be under 10 years old. He was campaigning and he used those people....including Christy. What will it take for ppl to Wake up to the fraud known as Obama?

    President Obama takes the votes on New York and New Jersey for granted. He figures that they would still vote for him if he sent the money to Kenya!

    He figured it because its true. He used them and they allowed it. It was for the photo op for the rest of the nation to continue to buy the snake oil.

    Did the area vote for him and/or donate lots of money to his pet projects (him)? Even if you did and you're white/working/middle class you aren't fit to wipe his feet on but he's doing that. Did you ever read what he wrote?? He's 'getting even' with the evil "white" colonialism America. Voted for him???? You're getting what you deserve. Think all will be better if something else happens??? Why didn't you 'vet' the Chosen One??

    AH, forgot!!! Hasn't a Congressman offered a bill/amendment that would end the term limits for the Presidency????? That way------Obama can remain President!!!!!! FOREVER. His dream of being Dictator would be realized.

    If low class had been hit, like Katrina, they would have been relocated. That property is too valuable for poor people to be squatting upon.

    When are people going to learn that Oblahblah LIES!!! He's a pathelogical liar, pure and simple!! He only said that stuff to get re-elected and he accomplished what he went there for. Just wish people would open their eyes and see who this man really is, but, alas, sheeple...what can you say?
