    I would blame Obama for this, but he was just being a politician. I do, however, enjoy mocking the idiots who thought it would be different.

    She didn't have flood insurance, and lives on a marina... What, does she want the government to just "give" her 500K? What is wrong with these people? Why doesn't she just take the loan for what she can afford and start over smaller at first???

    Her issues have nothing to do with Obama. Fail.

    I call bullshit on the whole story.


    And QW you should check out the Fema page, and then maybe decide if you believe this women.

    Hurricane Sandy Survivors Should Return SBA Disaster Loan Applications to Keep Options Open | FEMA.gov


    And to me the government is doing all they can if they offered her a loan. She didn't have insurance, and if she truly was offered a loan at 6% she probably doesn't have the best credit. Didn't we learn that something from the housing bubble?

    What more would you want the government to do? So no Obama didn't lie, they are doing what they CAN do, they are not doing what they shouldn't.

    What, exactly, did I get wrong? Keep in mind that all I am claiming here is that the federal government is still as slow to respond, and still as mired in paper, as it was when Bush was in charge.
