    Bloomberg then it is about anything else!!

    the Kbros are hellbent to pay Christie back for daring to 'suck up' to Obama post Sandy, which they believe was a BIG REASON Obama was re-elected and they see a denial of AIDE for Sandy relief for jersey as the best path to do that.

    the Kbros HATE Bloomberg because he doesnt 'play ball' with the rest of the Billionaires and they want to 'stick it' to Bloomberg and see denial of sandy relief to NY as their best path.

    US 'victims of the hurricaine mean little or nothing to the Kbros and their minions...  we dont even exist is their world... this is all about POLITICS and paying back Christie and Bloomberg for not doing as the Kbros demanded.

    But I hope the pols from places like FL and MISS et al remember that this denial of aide will come back to devastate their states should it become the new 'normal' in congress for dealing with natural disasters.

    btw this is nothing New to NYers....   I remember the fateful headline in the 70's  FORD TO NY - DROP DEAD and the disgusting congressional fighting over whether to give aide to NYC after 9/11...  I believe one repub senator actually went on TV and called us NYers 'money grubbers'
