A governments primary purpose is to protect its citizens. FEMA is one of those pieces that protects our citizens. Americans need to stop being cheap and invest in their neighbors and the infrastructure. These investments protect our country. We have bought into that "cut taxes" mentality. We have allowed business people to drive our country, bad move. We need to be investing not cutting. Invest in America, not businesses. They don't care about our country. They care about their pocketbook only. This focus is destroying our nation. We need leaders. Leaders that focus on the country.
