As a second New Year since Superstorm Sandy approaches, many coastal residents are still waiting for New York, New Jersey and New York City to distribute billions of federal dollars that were intended to go directly to people struggling to rebuild their homes.
Only a fraction of that money has been spent, leaving storm victims at the mercy of a frustrating maze of bureaucracy. Depending on where they live, the checks could be anywhere from days to many more months away.
Congress approved a roughly $60 billion Sandy aid bill last January, setting aside a large chunk of that money for housing rehabilitation programs

It must be 100% Bush’s fault....
My guess is that they're waiting until just before elections so they can use it to buy votes.
Now can you remind me why did Pres. Bush get such flak for waiting THREE DAYS after Katrina?
I’m a Biloxi “Katrina victim” who never got a dime. Lost a thriving business. So what? Get on with your lives!
We’re from the government and we’re ... somewhere.
New Jersey.....you got screwed by both Barack Hussein Obama and Cory Booker!!! Love it!!! You fools voted for these low life, shysters....and they did you in!!!! Hoping that Obama Hope & Change is just doing fine for you!!! Idiots!!!
I can find no other logical explanation
Theres only one answer for it they want those residents to move so they can snatch the land “It will be headlines sooner than you think !”
But wait....The joisey dough boy said Obama swiftly delivered money as promised.
“So, where has the money gone?”
Pssst! Advice from the Missisippi coast.
Start your search in Albany.
It’s with the $1T stimulus money...
There is a lesson to be learned here. Don’t wait for the government to come and help you!
2 years after Katrina Nawleans was up and running. But we don’t hear the media screaming about Sandy.
Government is the greediest, most corrupt and murderous force on earth.
By making that statement Christie Creme considers his duty to the people of NJ fulfilled. Watt? Youse tawt he was spozed ta woik hawda dan dat?
I;ve been to the Philippines for business in more than 5 years and they get hit by super typhoons every year.
They are so used to it that after the typhoons they simply rebuild their houses and get to work. Now how effing’ simple is that? Americans today are damn weak, looking for any hand out.
Somwhow, it will be.
Strange how the media doesn’t acknowledge the poor victims here.
As you know, not part of their agenda. Wake me up from this dream.
