Those folks in Staten Island

should be screaming for abolishing FEMA!!

It says a lot, people crying for help because they can't help themselves. Then you have a big government entity that won't help either. This is exactly what happens when you rely on someone else for your well being!
Certainly nobody had flood insurance either, right?
Now, lawsuits for taxpayers to rebuild all the private property wrecked in the storm.

Would state governments do a better/faster job in natural disasters, I say certainly.
