RANT: Katrina fraud likely to balloon past $1B

Katrina fraud likely to balloon past $1B

*** begin quote ***

WASHINGTON – The tally for Hurricane Katrina waste could top $2 billion next year because half of the lucrative government contracts valued at $500,000 or greater for cleanup work are being awarded without little competition. Federal investigators have already determined the Bush administration squandered $1 billion on fraudulent disaster aid to individuals after the 2005 storm. Now they are shifting their attention to the multimillion dollar contracts to politically connected firms that critics have long said are a prime area for abuse.

“I’m from the gooferment. And, I’m here to help you.”


Ahh Socialist Amerika. The gooferment doesn’t do levees right. Disaster. The gooferment goes into “rescue” people. They die. Corporations send trucks of relief to the stricken area. The gooferment turns them back. The displaced need “stuff”. The gooferment gives out debit cards which are used at strip clubs. Houses are destroyed. The gooferment is defrauded of a billion bucks.

If this wasn’t so serious, it would be funny.

Why aren’t you laughing citizen?

Let’s assume that the 300M people in the US all share the 1B$ equally, (we know that’s not true. neither the rich nor the poor pay taxes.), so that’s about $3 each.

So “your” Federal slave masters robbed you of $3 to literally throw it out the window in NOLA.

What would you have done with that $3? I could have stopped on my way to work and bought a cup of coffee.

I’d have enjoyed that coffee more than this joke.

We need cheaper “jokes”!
