I do not keep up with politics or the news, so I have a ?. I heard somewhere this morning that the estimated damage is aprox 9 million, but Obama is sending 100 million. Not counting all the other assistance. First let me say I am ALL FOR helping others!
But can some one please explaine to me the reason behind sending 10 x the amount of damage?
Or did I just miss hear?
Pardon my ignorance. :)

The death toll is anywhere from 50,000 to 500,000. The hospitals have collapsed as has a jail that held 17,000 criminals. There is no water, no electricity. Their capital has collapsed as well...what are you talking about? If you want answers they are easy to find....what you posted is not true

Since the 80's, the USA has sent Haiti about $93 billion. At that rate, Haiti should be the richest country in the Western hemisphere with building practices to match the wealth. There is (was) only about 9.5 million Haitians. $93 billion divided by 9.5 million means that dollar for dollar, each of those people should be millionaires.
Kind of like America? and how much we are spending in the middle east, can you give me the figures we have spent there?
