Okay, I’ve read a couple articles on this, and from what I’ve seen, spending to fortify levees and other flood protection for New Orleans has been reduced by about 44% since 2001. Why? To help pay for a war in Iraq and Homeland Security.
Basically, if the funding wasn’t cut on these things, New Orleans may still exist. Think about that and see how it makes you feel. Is that war in Iraq worth THIS?
