It's Time To Get Your Move On

Katrina Victims Face Eviction From Federal Housing
Nearly four years after hurricanes Katrina and Rita left a million Americans homeless, the government is threatening to throw thousands of storm survivors out of temporary federal housing.

A FEMA official told a House panel Friday that the government will send Katrina survivors still living in temporary housing eviction notices starting June 1 and try to connect them to agencies that can help them. But he also said it would be "some period of time," meaning months, before the evictions actually would begin.

The $5.6 billion housing assistance program that provided temporary trailers and hotel rooms to victims was supposed to end in 2007. But the deadline was extended by two years to May 1 of this year to help the more than 5,000 individuals and families still struggling to rebuild their lives. (At its peak, 143,000 households along the Gulf Coast were located in temporary housing units.)

But the Obama administration says they have to go by the end of the month or face eviction.
I'm sorry, but if you haven't gotten your act together after four years then you've just been sitting on your ass. Pack it up, move on, and accept the fact that you may not be able to live where you want too. The Nanny State's teat is dry.
