There was flooding a few weeks ago in Chicago, Northeastern Illinois (really all of the northern part of the state) and some parts of NW Indiana. Really heavy torrential rains.
Did the federal government show up immediately and help??? Nope
The State government??? Nope.
But now….weeks afterwards. We have this help. Free money. Free food stamps.
WEEKS after the floods. And NO VERIFICATION THAT THE RECIPIENT HAD SUFFERED ANY DAMAGE….All you had to do was show proof that you lived in the ZIP CODE…..
Is there anything the government does well ?
Hey, what the hell, it’s not like it will make a difference in the deficit or anything….
