I watched this last night and everything DR Paul said went right over Anderson Cooper's head!
Having experience three Cat 5 hurricanes and Katrina, Dr Paul's comments are dead-on.
The states and people were much better off preFEMA. The responsibility is with the state and its citizens. Yes, the states need help for rescue during an emergency. But, they don't need FEMA running the show in a storm's aftermath.
Anyone remember FEMA going around to shelters after Katrina handing out $2,500 debit cards?
