It's appalling that incompetent/career politicians in D.C. (and Hartford) wasted TRILLIONS of our earnings, so now there is nothing left for FEMA--except borrowed/printed money--to help repair the damage done to "infrastructure" by the flooding here, in VT and NY, such as Ulster County. Ironically, Gov. Cuomo took part as HUD secretary in causing the *mortgage collapse/Financial DISASTER* our nation is in now. Does he even realize his own role in creating the Recession his state and the nation are in? I had an e-mail from Jim Himes Tuesday, in which he started with "offer[ing] some assistance to help keep you safe"....and finished with: "Again, my office is happy to help in any way possible. Please do not hesitate to call at 866-453-0028 or stop into either my Bridgeport or Stamford offices, listed below.

Jim" Too bad he and the other professional (?) politicians wasted over 820 Billion $$ of Americans' BORROWED money on *failed* "Stimulus" that was supposed to create jobs and build "infrastructure."
