Congress Robbing $400 Million From Katrina Victims To Pay For BP Gulf Oil Spill

Years after Hurricane Katrina left a path of destruction throughout New Orleans and other parts of Louisiana much of the damage still remains.

So much damage remains that they still offer “disaster tours” to tourists wishing to see the devastation.

Restoration to almost 20,000 homes which still lie destroyed in Louisiana, with over 7,000 of those homes in New Orleans alone, was supposed to paid for by funds specifically set aside to help those impacted by Hurricane Katrina.

That isn’t going to happen anymore as Mother Jones reporter Mac McClelland informs as as she shines some light on the latest act of disgrace by the Federal Government in her article titled Robbing New Orleans to Pay for BP’s Spill.

Yes, Federal Government has repeatedly assured the public over and over again that BP will pay for every dime of costs related to the oil spill.

But as we have seen throughout this crisis the Government has repeatedly told the public one thing and has done another.

The lip service has even been echoed by President Obama himself on several occasions.
