FEMA should cover generators, lost food
When it was announced that federal funds would be available to assist Western New Yorkers after the storm, I was happy. When I learned what was covered, I changed my outlook. Food, the most important item in a person's budget, isn't covered. Generators aren't covered. The time and labor to cut down trees that have grown for 10 to 15 years and collect all the branches is not covered.
What is covered? People who stayed in a motel. Who can afford to do that except the rich? Damage to homes and cars is covered, but only by the insurance company. Who is going to get these millions of dollars that reportedly will be spent in the next couple of months? I'll bet it will not be the people who need it the most.
