For federal aid posts hurricane sandy a lot of votes on -- okay how we came up with that figure and date.
How he would spend that figure even if we got the -- -- congress senate Appropriations Committee member -- -- congress and I I don't see and it covered myself what's going on around here lot of damage I don't know how you put a thirty billion dollar figure to it in this area.
Be that as it may.
I do know.
How money doesn't end up going to its source and I would worry about products.
I think that's again that's a good commented we look at the history of how we have handled disasters similar to this.
We have to have compassion for those people who were injured and -- that that part of our our country is devastated and I think everybody congress does.
Well we have -- responsibility.
Yet even more so today then.
Maybe in the past to look at every -- every nickel dime and quarter in Seattle is money's going to be spent.
That's a big ticket number and we need to see the particular.
So we'll Woodward you know again this this sitting in the congress and probably.
Horrible cynic but I'm we'll -- New York running in this latest here a billion dollar deficit and I'm thinking -- what.
What's to stop them for taking that money and using it for deficit relief are also the things that have nothing.
To do with the storm and storm damage in other words what kind of strings are attached to emergency aid -- out of Washington.

Is -- much.
Difficulty getting the money maybe not thirty billion how does that work how -- the approval process.
Gotta be applied to -- a theme as the right now it's my understand he has seven zillion available right now.
That would be bodies.
Over 49 -- a whole lot don't match mine and so therefore it's gonna take action on the other Appropriations Committee.
To approve the additional spending and I think there's going to be real questions.
Are asking horrible -- you a blank check.
He's got tell us how this is going to be spent.
And I think -- come -- -- want to have some.
Some kind of oversight over we have -- the oversight committee then we'd be looking closely -- -- is part of our problem these big part of our problem.
