    why people from katrina was able to get $800.00 and more in food stamps and the people from texas can not get more than $100.00?

  • VIDA says:

    MAYBE BECAUSE OF THE PEOPLE FROM KATRINA. THEY PROBALLY FELT SO BAD FOR LEAVING THOSE PEOPLE STRANDED FOR SO LONG WITH NO HELP, WITH ALL OF THE DEATHS AND ALL. WHO KNOW WHAT OUR GOVERMENT DOES WHAT THEY DO.
