Last month the Connecticut shoreline was battered by rain and wind that caused serious flooding and damage to homes and business reportedly totaling more than $10 million. Governor Rell had asked for federal assistance to help individual homeowners and businesses hit hard by the storms. Yesterday she learned her request has been denied … by Mr Hope and Change himself … Obama.
The decision comes just days after Obama approved the state’s request for a “major disaster declaration,” which provides financial help to state and municipal governments in Fairfield, Middlesex and New London counties.
Storms plagues the state, especially these counties from March 12 to 14 and from March 29 to 31.
Rell was looking for help for homeowners, renters and employers.
I am presuming there is a technicality that precludes Connecticut from getting the cash. It certainly can’t be politics, can it? I mean, isn’t the Constitution state in with in crowd? Please, with John Larson (Pelosi’s BFF) and Chris Dodd, the biggest spender i Congress (Health Care and Banking), they can’t find some lose change? Well, as the President says …
Governor Rell says she will continue to persue assistance by leaning on the Connecticut delegation. I’ll try and update this later.
