How, after 3 1/2 years is it even remotely acceptable to allow these "victims" to remain in government paid housing? $1.5 billion dollars - our tax money - has been handed out to the region. Why more? After 3 1/2 years why do we still have to pay for these free loaders?

First....I am not a free loader i have worked all my life and bought my house....We didn't get the help from my insurance company like they were suppose too. Secondly i never lived in gov't housing i had friends who took us in...And it my tax money too. So DO NOT JUDGE everyone one the same have you actually talked to anyone from there..Yes... some people took advantage AND so did the big companies who have yet to do the JOB they were paid to do....So why aren't you complaining about them........

OP HERE>>>I live in Galveston Texas, everything I own did get swept away. From Hurricane Ike. We aren't living in any government housing, we camped out and are working on our house as we speak. We lost everything. We are picking ourselves up, we have four children and we aren't living off of handouts! 3 1/2 years are mooochers. Katrina ripped across Alabama, Mississippi and you don't hear of people in those areas boohooing and still demanding handouts! Only in the New Orleans area. Galveston is still destroyed, we still have boats in the roads, damage that is devastating, whole islands wiped out, now what? Obviously those of you who are defending are those of you who are living off the government still. 3 1/2 years later, free rent!

Oh, NotPanicking, I agree 100%! Why is it only that New Orleans region crying for additional help? Those who are welfare recipients beforehand and still demand government to pay for and fix it all?
And OP, my hubby went down to Texas City and the Galveston area for clean up and rebuild work. He said that he didn't see not one "FEMA city" there. Not one. He said it is totally destroyed and devastated. A friend of ours lives in that area as well, they are rebuilding, living in a pop up trailer in their driveway. We lived in North Carolina and had damage from hurricanes, the flood, and lived in Florida during hurricanes, my husband went through Hurricane Andrew......it is ONLY these New Orleans Katrina victims crying for more!! And we wonder why our economy is tanking...
