Well, what would be your plan if you were president?
We rebuilt Europe after WW2 and at least half of the countries were our prior enemy and we did much of the destroying. A piece of our country was destroyed by an act of nature. Again, what else can we do?
How about teaching these people to be INDEPENDENT, the government is NOT supposed to take care of people from cradle to crave, what happened to being responsible for ourselves? Most of these people have the entitlement attitude, the government owes them, it's the governments fault, put my hand out and I shall receive, Bush played right into their hands. Help them to a point then teach them how to help themselves, don't continue to coddle them.
