<quoted text>We gave N.O. 17 billion dollars before Katrina and we have given them 16 billion dollars since Katrina. That doesn't count all of the billions of dollars N.O. got as their normal federal subsidy and what was spent doing the city's and state's jobs right after the hurricane hit.
What was the 17 billions pre katrina dollars for? Did other states or cities get some money too? I don't know about that money situation. And, how does that help the other parishes? The Katrina damage was not just New Orleans it spanned over 2 states. Go online...see how much was effected besides New Orleans...see more than the French Quarter...which never got water. And "we" includes "me" too...because people in Louisiana still pay taxes.

That was just for levees. They got other money for other things as other cities do.

I have a feeling like many...that money was pocketed by our lovely politicians. Louisiana and it's government has also been very corrupted since the days of Huey P Long. We are now paying for how our ancestors voted.

In 1972 , the remnants of hurricane Agnes hit Wilkes-Barre PA. the flood took approx a week to go down. Then the tough part started. However we had a good leadership in the cityand in the National Guard. They made sure that the people who were affected got into town and started cleaning up. The National Guard and All Reserve units used their equipment and trucks to assist in the cleanup. Within six months, most of the mess was cleaned up, but it took several more years to clean it all up. That mess in NO will probably take a few decades with the leadership they have. In wish them luck, next time vote smart. Don't vote for a nice guy who can throw nice words but doesn't have an idea of what is going on.

Can you believe it. Somebody is trying to distract from this forum topic by changing the subject.
