(2-17-23) It seems that the Biden Administration is turning its back on the recent train derailment that included explosions of toxic chemicals in early February.
Release from Gov. DeWine’s office
“The DeWine Administration has been in daily contact with FEMA to discuss the need for federal support,” the release stated. “However FEMA continues to tell Governor DeWine that Ohio is not eligible for assistance at this time. Governor DeWine will continue working with FEMA to determine what assistance can be provided.”
Dan Tierney, a spokesperson for DeWine, told Fox News Digital, that FEMA didn’t believe the incident qualified as a traditional disaster.
Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, is much like US VP Kamala Harris not visiting the border, as he has not made an appearance in East Palestine to look over the situation. A recent statement he made on the incident seems to downplay the situation.
Local residents are not happy about how the federal government is handling the situation. This includes drinking water and the lost of equity in their homes and the recent health issues that have developed.
When birds leave the area, they are escaping death. This appears to be a sign. When politicians will not drink the water. This appears to be a sign. When a government has no empathy to others plight they are insulated from their constituents and too large to feel there needs. Norfolk Western will not stand up as their greed will overcome their better judgement. Our federal government is feckless and incapable to stand up to big money lobbyists.
Uh, just so you know, our dear Gov NoSpine has to INVITE Federal agencies into “his” state. Last week he said “we” can handle it on “our own.” After backlash, once again, our dear Gov NoSpine capitulated and asked for help. It’s the repulican way.
