FEMA asks for return of disaster aid

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – After the raging Cedar River filled his home with 13 feet of water and ruined most of his possessions, Justin Van Fleet pleaded for help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to get back on his feet.

Dead broke and living in a FEMA trailer following the 2008 flood, Van Fleet repeatedly submitted paperwork and made countless phone calls arguing his case. After seven months, the agency finally gave him more than $20,000, which he said gave him his life back and allowed him to move into a house.

Then in March, a letter arrived from the government with a shocking message: He should never have gotten the money. And he had just 30 days to pay it all back.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

wtf2.gif that's just wrong...but according to the article:

Quote:FEMA is required by law to recover improperly spent money

seems like FEMA is missing out on some real action...not to mention Pentagons missing trillions of dollars among things. But as usual going after the little guy for pocket money

Does FEMA honestly think they will get that cash back in these economic times? Are debtors prisons on the horizon where FEMA recipients can work off the debt? damned.gif

I'm sure some desk jockey dipshit that was put in charge of this has been convinced by his superiors they can.
