As usual, more mismanagement of taxpayer funds. The trailers were supposedly purchased at 25k a piece only to be auctioned off at a much lower price just before the storm hit the east coast. And now the cycle will repeat where FEMA will purchase additional trailers to house the homeless. Its always a party time with tax payer funded programs thats for sure.

Federal officials sold hundreds of emergency trailers for disaster victims at fire-sale prices in the months before Hurricane Sandy churned toward the United States, The Washington Examiner has learned.

Now, with thousands of families left homeless in New York and New Jersey by the hurricane, those same federal officials are poised to spend more taxpayer dollars to buy brand-new trailers.

Your thoughts/comments/viewpoints/opinions please.
