    I would like to know more about the details of disaster budgets. Year after year we discover scandalous misuse and overpricing by "rescue" organizations. I would like to mandate - require -- a public posting of every disaster budget in detail so that we the people can choose where our tax dollars go and who receives them. One case in point is the grassroots chef's kitchen in Puerto Rico last year that fed masses of people on a total budget of $400,000. Even the Salvation Army was using their services to provide meals! What is it about our lumbering, greed-obsessed federal "funding" that tags every event with billions and billions of dollars? We KNOW the disaster victims aren't receiving anywhere close to the value of those amounts. Transparency! Let's have it!
