The HUD Inspector General reports that $700 million out of a billion dollars granted to New Orleans "victims" of Hurricane Katrina were wasted. As befits the mission of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, that money was specifically channeled to homeowners to retrofit their homes, increasing elevations to protect from future floods. The aid recipients cared not at all about the contracts they signed and aid stipulations; they did as they pleased. For all practical purposes the money has disappeared, just like sands laying in the path of an oncoming storm. And when the storms come again their homes will be as vulnerable as ever.
We live in a nation of irresponsibility and dishonor fed by progressive enablers, big government power brokers and brain dead bleeding heart liberals who continue to build up the burden of prodigious debt that will break the backs of our children and grandchildren.
