Hurricane relief - how much is too much?

From Fox News:
"Domestic priorities like federal aid to schools and health research are
squeezed under President
Bush
's proposed budget for next year, but funding for the Pentagon, the war
in Iraq and anti-terrorism efforts get impressive increases. "


It's good that President Bush has proposed some cuts but the $18 Billion more to Hurricane relief (for a total of $100 Billion) is completely excessive. I'm not sure what the right amount is but I am sure that the private sector would do a better job than the government. Immediate needs of water, ice, food and temporary housing have been met by the feds and now it's time for private companies and state and local governments to do the rebuilding work.

Well said. Private companies can do the same work in less time with less money than the government.

Yes the private sector in most places could do a better job with the money however in Louisiana the most corrupt area in the country it is questionable. Doing something is always better than doing nothing.
Nice post bud.
