It Matters What 'Is' "Is"...New Orleans Levee Money - Additional 2.5B...Less or More of the Same?

Remember...12/2005 The additional 1.5b to equal 3.1b and then remember it was lost to the Senate Appropriations Committee, where the President said on 3/8/2006 that the Committee essentially refused to act on his request?
The Washington Post states that the original 3.1b was either requested or received?
Go the 3/12/2006 blog for details The Presidents request for the additional 1.5b has been lost...
Another 2.5b is being proposed and this time there is a catch...It is not a block grant, this is a loan with sharp teeth that will come back to bite the citizens of the state. Senator Landrieu seems pretty adamant to not let Louisiana fall into a "beggars can't be choosers" mentality....Good for her!
