The story is a common one. Homeless people in Long Island being told that their home is uninhabitable or that it has been condemned. Notices on their doors from inspectors telling them that they need another inspection. Many of them are in limbo waiting over 3 weeks now for another inspection to see if they can start repairing their homes or if they have to raise the structure and start from scratch. Obama said that he would remove all of the red tape......but it still remains. Nothing has been changed. If anything the bureaucratic mess is even more complex. If anyone thinks that depending on government solves all of your problems think again. I had to change my insurance during the open season period that hits this time of the year because of changes caused by the Affordable Health Care Act. I received letters telling me where to go to find information on what to do to simply change my policy from 222 to F52. After searching for hours going from the website that was listed in the letter then referred to another website and then another website I found out that I was back where I started. Truth is the only way you can get anything done when you deal with government is know the system inside and out. That way you can find the shortcuts in the system. But without going through the runaround. Well, there's the rub. Why do you think it took thousands of pages to describe Obamacare? Because there are so many hidden roadblocks in the program, many even Congress doesn't know. We had to pass it first to be able to understand it. The confusing nature of any government program or any government system that is what makes it so undesirable. Knowing that you have to deal with it is enough to make some businesses close their doors. Fact is, government is good at making the simplest thing extremely complex. That alone is what is causing the mess in New York after hurricane Sandy and is why unemployment will skyrocket now that Obama is back to screw things up for 4 more years. There is no direction, no answers, no sense to the mess. Ft Campbell is feeling the same thing as every other military installation. We ask for direction from the top and none is forthcoming. At least with Bush we knew where to start but with Obama we don't even have that. So it's no surprise to us that Obama gives a speech telling Sandy victims that he's on the job.....then he goes to Thailand and Cambodia for God only knows what.
