Governor Chris Christie Announces Federal Disaster Aid Approved for Additional New Jersey Counties
Source: CBS

Governor Christie announced Saturday that the federal government has approved disaster assistance for New Jersey residents impacted by Hurricane Irene in additional counties.

Individuals in 16 counties are eligible for federal disaster relief. Governor Christie previously requested assistance for all 21 counties in the state, but damage assessments need to be concluded before individual assistance can be granted to Burlington, Hudson, Mercer, Ocean and Union counties, according to authorities.

Residents and small businesses in Atlantic, Bergen, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Essex, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Passaic, Salem, Somerset, Sussex and Warren counties are able to retrieve assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Eligibility allows New Jerseyans to apply for different types of assistance, including temporary housing, repair, replacement or other needs such as Disaster Unemployment Assistance, and Small Business Administration disaster loans.

Its amazing how the corporate media refuses to call out Republicans for their hypocrisy. As Republicans in the House and on the campaign trail denounces federal disaster relief as pork spending, here is right winger Chris Christie with his hand out to the federal government.

4. When Big Govt is actually needed... If it was drowned in a bathtub with no revenue,
where would they get there money to help provide aid and rebuilding. I'm assuming they are also utilizing the National Guard in their cleanup assistance. This is why its important to collect taxes for "redistribution". And if Cantor wants to pay for it, raise taxes on the billionaire class. They can afford paying more.
