RPOF's Lenny Curry on President Obama Dissing Florida Isaac Victims
Lenny Curry, chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, on Thursday issued the following statement responding to President Obama turning down aid to Florida's victims of Hurricane Isaac:
"Earlier this week we learned that President Obama 'believes in redistribution,' but this doesn't seem to apply to Florida or the victims of Hurricane Isaac. Today it was reported that his administration denied Governor Scott's request on behalf of Florida for a federal disaster declaration, effectively cutting our state off from much needed FEMA aid. While the president seems to enjoy campaigning in Florida, he doesn't seem interested in the realities its citizens face. I urge all Floridians to ask the president to 'redistribute' some disaster aid to our fellow Floridians who need it today."
