Thanks To Tom Barrett, FEMA Aid Is Coming To Milwaukee

It was announced over the weekend that FEMA has reversed course and will now be sending aid to individuals devastated by the flooding which had happened a couple of months ago.

After FEMA had completed their initial survey, they had only granted aid to the local governments, but nothing for the individual home owners, some of who had to have their homes razed due to all of the damage.

After that ruling, Tom Barrett went to work and collected surveys from affected home owners in preparations for an appeal.

Scott Walker basically shrugged it off, said he told people not to get their hopes up, and went back out on the campaign trail.

The choice in November gets clearer and clearer each day. On one hand, you have someone like Tom Barrett who keeps on fighting for the people, whether they are his constituents or not. On the other hand, you have someone like Scott Walker, who got his and said, "It sucks to be you" to his constituents and put his political aspirations first.
