Obama to Private Sector: ‘Show Some Heart!’

President Barack Obama had nothing but praise for all the government agencies involved in the clean-up and recovery effort in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy as he spoke from Staten Island Thursday afternoon. Staten Island has been the center of some of the worst devastation in New York and has also been the focal point of much anger from residents who felt ignored by government rescue efforts.

At the end of his remarks, which included several “shout outs” for individuals in his government and in the Cuomo Administration in New York, President Obama dealt a blow to private insurance companies by saying, “not everybody’s gonna be satisfied. I gotta tell ya, the insurance companies and some of the other private sector folks who are involved in this, we need you to show some heart and some spirit to help people re-build as well.”
