The Times-Picayune has a great breakdown of the $85 billion number that the Bush administration keeps flailing around, illustrating that the numbers just don’t add up to a serious commitment to rebuilding New Orleans. The Bush administration hasn’t done anything more than simply live up to its legal obligations.

See the full graphic here, and the accompanying story here.

Once again, local bloggers have been way out ahead of the curve tackling the Bush administration’s propaganda on this issue. da po’ boy, oyster, and bayoustjohndavid covered this topic a long time ago.
