The funds that were allocated should have been sufficient to rebuild all the levees damaged in the past, and maintain them properly. They should have been adequate, but were not. The problem is not in the lack of funding, it is in the administration of the funds that were allocated.

My question would be: why does the Army Corps of Engineers say that the funding from the federal government was insufficient?

They have said that if they had received the requested funds, much of the damage could have been prevented.

The Army Corps of Engineers had no complaints about funding until the Bush administration.

What do you know that they don't?
Do yourself a favor, become your own savior.

Think Fresh.
