The LRA's housing program was heavily criticized by the BGR for its plan for revitalizing homes in south Louisiana.
This begs the question, what did the middle-class do to be left out of the rebuilding process? Their sin should be obvious. Unlike Mississippiâ€™s recovery program, which focused on compensating homeowners for their losses, Louisianaâ€™s program directs the lionâ€™s share of recovery resources to low-income housing, BGR claims. Under the baseline scenario, most of the middle class is excluded from participation in the disaster recovery program.Polls show little support among the white middle class in this state to re-elect our current governor, Kathleen "Drew a" Blanco, while support among blacks remains strong.
Is this a way of punishing opponents and rewarding supporters? Given the way politics in this state works, don't be supprised if it is.
The BGR's summary may back me up on this.
