Is the role of the federal government to be responsible for E V E R Y T H I N G ?
Or should the states be more responsible for themselves?
“Governor Romney believes that states should be in charge of emergency management in responding to storms and other natural disasters in their jurisdictions,” Romney spokesman Ryan Williams said in a statement to Politico. “As the first responders, states are in the best position to aid affected individuals and communities, and to direct resources and assistance to where they are needed most. This includes help from the federal government and FEMA.”
My opinion: States are in a better position to understand needs and to direct assistance. I am for less government.
