Congress has already authorized 100 billion. To put this in perspective, 200 billion is 10 times what Andrew cost us.

Congress authorized $10.5 Billion in emergency spending. The next phase of Congress flushing our money down the toilet is expected to be in the neighborhood of $40 Billion.

The night the levy broke I told my family this was going to be a $100 billion storm. They thought I was crazy.

Actually, Bush will most likely give us a tax cut, instead, endangering the country with skyrocketing deficits and hyper-inflation a few years down the road.

That's been the Rino's plan all along. The hurricane just lets them accelerate their plans.

So, about $700 per PERSON to subsidize looting idiots who live below sea level.
Wonderful



That's kinda the way I feel about it, especially so with the low-lifes who are committing the crimes getting relief money also. And with the way the law was written (Rush was talking about it today 9-8-05) there is more than ample room and opportunity for fraud.

[Rant] And don't forget, we can throw 200 billion into that shit bowl, and it might happen again. Maybe this year, maybe next. Those fucking levees could burst again tomorrow. Fuck that place and all the idiots inside it. I don't see the point in rebuilding it as it was. Especially with the corrupt morons who were running the show, and the fucktards that keep voting them into office. Sorry. [/Rant]

+1

IIRC, something like 40% of working adults do NOT pay Federal Income Tax?

How much is that per US taxpayer ? (not per US citizen)




I think it comes to $2,000.00 per household .......
