Governor Rick Perry issued the following statement on Wednesday pertaining to FEMA’s decision not to release funds to the West disaster effort:

“The day of the West memorial service, President Obama stood in front of a grieving community and told them they would not be forgotten. He said his administration would stand with them, ready to help. We anticipate the president will hold true to his word and help us work with FEMA to ensure much-needed assistance reaches the community of West.”

In Texas, we do not require businesses to carry a certain amount of insurance. The fertilizer plant had $1 million in insurance. Pretty darn low. Texas prohibits counties under 250,000 from enacting fire codes. Tx politicians don't want to put any requirement whatsoever on businesses. But they do want the federal government to bail them out when their vision of free enterprise doesn't work out so well. Fema's for natural disasters, not Texas' back-up plan for man-made disasters.

Question - how much aid has Perry authorized for the town of West? Has he tapped into the state's Rainy Day Fund? The West disaster seems to be a perfect example of why the Rainy Day Fund exists, so has Perry provided the people of West any of the Rainy Day funds to which they have contributed over the years?

Synderga;, Not only are a black assed b______h Obuma lover who is wearing you brains in the place most women do instead of between your ears, you know that Obuma is the root of this lie as well as all the problems we now face. This administration has had five years to fix problems you blacks and illegla imigrants said were so wrong with this country and your president hasn't done anything but run this country and economy in the ditch. I'm sure you love his black ass as your one of the 47%.

Perry, are you stupid? They just said NO. Texans, Rise up and do this WITHOUT Fema. Prove we do not need the Federal Govt and that Texans can do it on their own.

Perry is not only intellectually challenged, he is drunk most of the time.

Hey, gtuys and gals...the president had heart-felt sympathy for West residents, but when it comes to monitarily assisting those affected by disasters such as the one in West, he doesn't open his wallet to make good on that promise...you need to put the blame squarely on the House and Senate who authorize such aid...come on, folks...the president said what he did in good faith...your repub/tea party folks in Washington are the one's who authorize aid...lobby your reps and stop blaming Obama!!
