Why is Obama’s FEMA Denying Disaster Relief to Red States?


Three states, three disaster areas, three Republican governors denied relief by the Obama administration. Is this a coincidence, or is it political payback? FEMA has denied assistance to Texas, which has been ravished by wildfires. Coincidentally, Governor Rick Perry recently criticized President Obama.

They’ve also denied assistance to Virginia, another state that was struck by April’s rash of tornadoes. And New Jersey, where flooding left many towns under water, was also denied. Sounds like a pattern to me.

Ironic Surrealism has more details of this strange coincidence.
