When businesses on the New Jersey shore or in NYC are finally rebuilt, WHO will provide the most toward that effort - federal and state government or the Koch brothers, Grover Norquist, or Sheldon Adelson?
Several months ago, President Obama was castigated when he said (in the unedited version of his speech in Roanoke, Virginia) that business owners did NOT build the roads and bridges they use to transport goods and services ... That was THEN, this is NOW! So will some of the Obama-haters and government-haters out there tell us what Donald Trump, Sheldon Adelson, David and Charles Koch, Karl Rove, Rush Limbaugh, or the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will do to alleviate the massive suffering, repair the damages, or revive the myriad of businesses devastated by Hurricane Sandy ... Will they wave a magic checkbook, or will FEMA, HUD, Homeland Security, the U.S. Corps of Engineers, and the many underappreciated and demonized public-service workers be required to complete this mammoth task? PLEASE, oh great and omnipotent "experts", tell us why this clean-up and restoration job should be relegated to the tender mercies of "private-enterprise" and the individual states!
