"While more than 90,000 homeowners have applied for a Road Home grant in the past four months, as of last Thursday just 94 families had received money. ICF has until July to complete the awards process."
This is from an article in late December. On Wednesday, President Bush will unveil "A New Way Forward", his new plan for Iraq. If you thought the Road Home was screwed this is even worse.
Here are a couple of ideas. Rather than spending billions a month in Iraq, trying to purchase victory through bribes and kickbacks, use that money a bit more wisely.
Give some of that same money to Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. At least corruption here would benefit U.S. citizens and not terrorists.
