Joe Biden has been doing all that he can to crush our nation.
Whether it is allowing our border to go unchecked, sending billions of dollars to Ukraine, or allowing our nation to descend into one of the worst recessions we have ever seen.
However, Biden takes a massive swing at Americans in Florida with his latest move.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is sounding the alarm after the Federal Emergency Management Agency denied a state request for assistance following Hurricane Ian.
DeSantis revealed Monday that the federal disaster agency denied a request for $25 million in funding to repair damaged houses impacted by the hurricane on Monday, according to Fox News.
“Unfortunately, we got word last week that FEMA had denied our request for funding our state-led housing initiative, citing their ‘limited authority,’” DeSantis revealed.

FEMA has provided other forms of funding to Florida to mitigate the damages of Hurricane Ian.
The agency isn’t willing to fund Florida’s state-run housing initiative, according to Newsweek.
However, DeSantis isn’t simply willing to stand by as the agency says ‘no.’
The state of Florida will step in where the federal government is refusing to help disaster-blighted homeowners, the governor announced.
“Today I’m announcing Florida will be providing up to $25 million through state funds to purchase building materials and provide those materials to verified nonprofit organizations to restore damaged homes to livable conditions — so that Floridians can move back into their own homes,” DeSantis pledged at a Monday news conference.

Hurricane Ian caused between $50 billion and $65 billion of insured damages to Florida property owners, according to CNBC.
This is not the first time FEMA has denied Florida federal funds intended to mitigate the damages of natural disasters.
The Biden administration rejected a request for federal assistance for two tornado-hit Florida counties earlier this year, according to Florida Politics.
