FEMA funded 315 funerals; FL says only 123 died in hurricanes
"If you were to call around to all the medical examiner offices, people would say, 'No way did we have as many deaths as FEMA is saying,'" said Dr. Stephen Nelson, head of Florida's Medical Examiners Commission. "It's just an incredible number -- a difference of 192. This is the Free Funeral Payment Act."Hm. Wonder who runs FEMA? I mean, why would a federal agency try to to spend more than it needs to? Farked again.
The discrepancy is even greater because the families of some victims counted as storm casualties by the medical examiner said they received no help from FEMA, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel found.
