The east coast states of New York and New Jersey are doing the same thing that the 17,000 people are doing this week in Doha, Qatar. Show me the money! They are beseeching the American people to give them $80 billion dollars in relief funds. A special funding that would have to be created and approved by Congress. When are these northerners going to do what southerners do? Suck it up and finance your own recovery. Every little minor or major occurrance that lends itself to a cry of aid is used to soak the American people for more cash. They are largely Democrats and liberals with the mindset of not letting a good crisis go to waste.
