FEMA and HUD: not who you would want to depend on to throw you a life preserver

The House Financial Services Committee called HUD and FEMA to testify about when the lead federal agencies for hurricane relief are going to get the 2005 Hurricane survivors out of temporary and into permanent housing. The result: lots of agency mumbling and stammering.

Listen to excerpts from the hearing in this NPR story.

Also appalling is the failure of the agencies to come up with a plan for the next time disaster strikes a lower-income population.  It seems the agencies do not get along and cannot work together.

Let us pray for no hurricanes this summer.  Since our government has no plan, prayer is all we have.
