Sandy Aid

President Obama’s proposed $60.4 billion federal aid for victims of Hurricane Sandy has been revealed stuffed with millions in spending for museums and NASA with portions sent as far from the Northeast’s destruction as Alaska.

Now dubbed the ‘Sandy scam’ by its critics, only a portion of the federal funding goes directly to states and victims hardest hit by superstorm Sandy in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.

Instead $150 million is slated to benefit Alaskan fisheries, $8 million to homeland security and the justice departments for new cars, office equipment, furniture and ‘mobile X-Ray machines,’ and $41 million for eight military bases including Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, the New York Post reports.
