The reason I said that is I feel that while these investigations and pissing contest are ongoing, the rebuilding will be slowed down or stopped due to all the scrutiny. That would only impact those residing in Puerto Rico.

So that means no investigation should happen?

Another dodgy FEMA contract:

With No Employees and No Experience, an Atlanta Woman Got $156 Million to Provide 30 Million Relief Meals to Puerto Rico

Shockingly, a single person with no experience and no employees was unable to conjure up millions of meals on the spot.

The primary reason is financial resources, and lack of support,” she said. She says FEMA was the real problem. “They need to really shore up their infrastructure for payment for their contractors,” Brown said. “If you want someone to provide a service of $155 million, you really should pay or wire transfer within 24 hours or pay a percentage.”

Brown told CNN she plans to sue the government for $70 million.

FEMA was bad news from day one back in Jimmy Carter's day.

If it weren't for the crazy conspiracy theories, those who opposed it on rational grounds might have prevailed.

Note that the alternatives did not include the federal government NOT managing emergencies.

The opposing position was to keep the existing protocols about calling out the National Guard etc and not having a bureaucracy sitting around paying for studies, awarding contracts, and such.


Hey! Maybe those were false flag crazy conspiracy theories as part of a conspiracy to get the FEMA act passed. :notsure:
