Hurricane Irene is scheduled to blow into North Carolina, sucker punch Richmond, then follow I 95 up the Eastern Seaboard….

When the storm is over, out come the cries for Federal Assistance to cope with damages. Of course, due to Richmond’s representative Eric Cantor, this time there will be a historically low amount of assistance dollars available to be dispensed among all those states needing help….

The proper way any administration should handle these incoming and overwhelming requests, would be to say: since Delaware has always understood the interfacing required between the Federal Government and states; they will get what we need. Richmond,on the other hand, has not. Perhaps they might like to give Eric Cantor a personal call and ask him and his supporters to assist them with their finances?
