TRENTON, NJ Gov. Chris Christie says Superstorm Sandy caused $36.8 billion in damage in New Jersey.
Christie is requesting that amount, which is greater than his state's entire budget, from the federal government.
Christie says more than 30,000 homes or businesses were destroyed or sustained substantial damage from last month's storm.

You see, Sandy is credited with giving Obama a last minute boost in the last election. The loss for the nation will be in the $trillions.
feeding at the public trough
Christie can just go to his new BFF, who will give him our tax dollars for “rebuilding.”
Yeah, I'm sure Obama is going to get right on that. /s
Christie: Your election-eve behavior in exploiting Sandy to suck up to The Skinny Dictator did damage to America that can't yet be calculated. One place or the other, you'll pay.
Hey Christie, let your *&#@&*+ unions repair things.
Before they shove themselves up their smelly Obamas.
As for you, you RINO, please precede the unions in that smelly Obama trip into darkness.
And now we see what the Fat Slob was up to pre-election. He is just another phony RINO feeding at the trough in many different ways. The worst type of hypocrite.
Looks like this is where the rubber meets the road, Mr. Christie.
Was the short term benefit your dog and pony show to make 0 look good after Sandy worth it?
Of course he can "request" it -- but I doubt Obama has much left in his "stash" after paying for food stamps and Obamaphones and stuff.
Christie isn't going to get anything near that amount, and he knows it!
BTW I believe the Federal Flood Insurance program only covers up to a maximum of $250k + $100k contents for a home or $500k for a business. Since the bad damage was mostly due to storm surge flooding, a lot of homeowners and businesses have big uninsured losses after Sandy. The FEMA low-interest loans probably aren't such a bad deal if someone was planning on a teardown anyway -- otherwise, not. And most weren't.
The White Hut says they’ll get back to you, Guv.
Unprepared Government and Graffe
CC did himself more damage than he knows by recklessly prostituting himself to the ‘O’ big spending agenda!
It cost him and the rest of US plenty... that is what a lot of people will remember when they are asked to ‘help out’!
Tell me exactly what obama did in NJ that Bush did NOT do in NO? Oh yeah, I remember Bush did NOT have the MSM in his pocket.
You forget the kickbacks to the three major organized crime syndicates: the mob, the unions, and the democrats.
The media sound when Bush was in orifice during Katrina was deafening.
The media sound while nobama is in orifice deafening by it’s silence.
It is ridiculous.
raise taxes to pay for it all
I can’t even try to imagine what my homeowners insurance premium is going to be next year.
