I'm not saying it isn't the right #, it just seems like a lot.

There were a few situations where the Puerto Rico funds weren't used as well as they should have been and that was a much smaller scale and $ figure vs. what we're talking here.

I'm all for stimulating the businesses who will clean and rebuild, but seems like a lot of waste and misuse will happen.
Soooooooo.....are you just looking at the dollar figures and making these assumptions that it appears excessive or have you really looked into this?

PR is part of the US and remains largely a disaster area. Trump and our government have let them down. Period. FL, TX, CA, many other areas, and most importantly, PEOPLE, in the mainland US are still contending with residual damage brought by numerous natural disasters in 2017. Hell, I was in New Orleans last spring and they're still addressing infrastructure issues because of damage done by Katrina.
