    Sandy victims left out in the cold during arctic blast

    Sandy victims left out in the cold during arctic blast | Fox News

    The brutal cold snap affecting much of the country is taking a devastating toll on victims of superstorm Sandy, many of whom are camped out in tent cities or living in homes without power, heat or running water.
    Those unable to get proper lodging have hunkered down in their homes without the basic necessities of heat, electricity, or running water.
    “Many families in Union Beach are using space heaters to warm upstairs,” said Jeanette Van Houten, a resident from the small New Jersey town that was among the hardest-hit communities. “There’s people with no heat, no electric, but they are staying in the house because it’s better than having to deal with FEMA and having to leave hotels every two weeks
    We have an aid bill held up in the Senate now for ten days. What's the hang up?

    Why should anyone hurry to help idiots??

    I guess it seemed to make more sense that the money be spent on an inauguration rather than on space heaters.

    Seriously.
    There was an example of one guy who's family stays in a hotel, but he has to come to the destroyed area to work. He ends up stay in a tent city tent. Some of these people are trying to rebuild their homes. I don't think they are all idiots.
