U.S. didn’t accept most foreign Katrina aid
Some donations spoiled, while millions still haven’t been collected or spent

"Only a fraction of promised aid collected
Allies offered $854 million in cash and in oil that was to be sold for cash. But only $40 million has been used so far for disaster victims or reconstruction, according to U.S. officials and contractors. Most of the aid went uncollected, including $400 million worth of oil. Some offers were withdrawn or redirected to private groups such as the Red Cross. The rest has been delayed by red tape and bureaucratic limits on how it can be spent."

Yet more evidence that most current Republican officer-holders really don't give a damn about helping normal people even when it would not cost them anything.

Unfortunately it probablly does.   We have a large population of true believers in our current government, and an even larger population of people who never think or question.
