NOLA Wants YOUR Money

"This bill boggles the mind," said Steve Ellis, a water resources expert at Taxpayers for Common Sense. "Brazen doesn't begin to describe it. The Louisiana delegation is using Katrina as an excuse to resurrect a laundry list of pork projects."

Big shock here. Louisiana, and its crown jewel city New Orleans, two of the most corrupt political entities in the USA want 16x what the Army Corp of Engineers say would be required to "fix" NOLA and 10x the Army's annual budget, $40 Billion--thats with a "B"--and that all this money should be controlled by (yup, you guessed it, the same people who sent federal money to casinos instead of shoring up the levees) New Orleans and Louisiana governments.

And so it begins.

Update: John Fund says clean up the corruption. Via Instapundit.

Another person who thinks like I do about letting NOLA go.
