Web letter: Hurricane repair not duty of swamped government

Call me hard-hearted, I don’t care, but I don’t understand when we became a socialistic country. New York and New Jersey want $60 billion to repair the damage from hurricane Sandy and people are all up in arms because congress has not granted it yet.

Don’t those people have insurance? When you build a few feet from the ocean, or beneath the level of the ocean such as New Orleans, shouldn’t you expect to be flooded out now and then? Why should the rest of the country be expected to compensate for their stupidity?

This country is already in debt over $16 trillion and borrowing $4 billion a day. That $60 billion would require borrowing another $24 billion. When is it all going to stop?
