Obama > Bush
Perhaps the US learned from its mistakes. Which is progress. Which is good, right?
Actually all the mistakes were made locally. You make it sound like its my fault...
Too many reason to begin to list, but you can start with the amount of money that flows around New York. Getting that back on line is critical to the financial success of the whole country. The entire state of Louisiana does not produce 19% of what New York does, ba<x>sed on 2010 records of State GDP. ba<x>sed on 2003 Estimates the population of Louisiana is only 23% of that of New York. So on both counts the population and the monetary contributions Louisiana falls short. We wont even begin to go into the money that goes in to the Federal Government from New York as compared to Louisiana, or the countless political corruption charges in Louisiana. Or the series of funds that were sent to Louisiana that were marked for capital improvements that would have made the levee's that were paid to the State Government of Louisiana that somehow were miss-appropriated to other projects over the past 30 years. If that money had gotten into the hands of responsible state and local government officials there are beliefs that the death toll of New Orleans would have been dramatically reduced. Then we have the denial of the Louisiana State Governor failing to address the federal government within the guidelines of the law, required by the legal separation of States vs Federal government. New York and New Jersey both asked for the help through Legal channels from the Federal Government - Louisiana never asked. Those could be a few starter reasons that the aid to New York today is better and smarter.
The major TV networks are located in NYC. Whatever happens there is "IMPORTANT." They don't give a **** about New Orleans, Kansas City, Dallas, Seattle, Salt Lake, or anywhere else.
Politics, greed & connections
Probably because. NY is more locally organized.
It took longer but new orleans has had plenty of help. I believe NY'ers are more together in making things happen to.
Cuz...it's New York.
Because New York is a blue state and it is just before an election with a Dem incumbent.
