WASHINGTON, D.C. — The nation’s wealthiest received more than $7.5 million in disaster assistance between 2007 and 2010 even as communities across the country continued to struggle to return to normal after national disasters.That total that went to those make $1 million or more was a small portion of the more than $834 million that was doled out as disaster housing assistance during that period.But with tens of thousands of middle and working class citizens with out homes in the wake of Hurricane Sandy it could become a flash point in Congress when lawmakers return to Washington next month.Sen. Tom Coburn, a hardline conservative, first highlighted the payments to millionaires in his 2011 report, Subsidies of the Rich and Famous.
if this election goes the way of Republicans then the disproportionate spreading of the wealth to the wealthy will continue into a law. and the Scotus appointee would put it in stone, then you know the social programs will be cut to ribbons to pay for them
“Millionaires can clearly afford insurance coverage for their homes and property and should not need disaster aid,” the report argued.
next to no taxes and they want what they want to deny "we the people" unless they can cut something else to pay for the free ride, not by the poor as they led you to believe but to the millionaire buddies. recognize it ain't about you.
