Uh...you do remember that Bush was President... and it IS Louisiana, after all! "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job"...remember that? Well, it looks like the rest of them were doing "a heck of a job", too...blowing our money! Put the blame where it really belongs, Nuh_!<quoted text>
Excellent example of the efficiency of the federal government!
According to the article David Montoya, the inspector general of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, describes the home elevation program as little more than a complete failure.
“Considering there was just under $1 billion earmarked for this particular program and there's $700 million that wasn't used for that, I’d give it a very low D,” he says.
That's $700 MILLION wasted....now - what about the $787 BILLION spent on the so-called Stimulus??? I reckon Obama/Biden's 'Recovery Summer-2010'+ 3 years will show some promise...
Keynesian economics fails everytime.
Come to think of it, Bush and his Group (Bremmer) did the same thing in Iraq!
8 Billion missing and we still don't know where it went. But, Bremmer came home and hasn't been seen or heard from since. Enjoying that money, or part of it, would be my guess.
