Federal Government will give victims 2K each.

I think its unprecedented..for the government to give out this type of cashola without any strings attached..The estimate of $640 Million has been bandied about as what this giveaway will cost the taxpayers. I have mixed feelings about this endeavor. Yes, its good, people can buy clothes,shoes, baby formula etc. It will be in the form of a debit card, so hopefully that will cut down on illicit use. The victims need everything and will be able to prioritize their needs personally, no big brotha telling them what is excluded. Is it the pessimist in me that thinks this is going to get hosed up?

4 people gave us their .02 cents:

Yes, I want 1 iPod, a used car and a tank of gas. A house? Nahhh, the government will pay for my housing. Clothes for a job interview, hahaha, you are kidding right?
