Where’s your dollar? Sen. Obama voted against Stafford waiver for New Orleans two weeks before speech
POTUS flat out misled audience when he was making his race solidarity speech. He knew Stafford Act had been waived in New Orleans like NYC.
However, the federal government had waived the Stafford Act’s requirement that New Orleans contribute 10 percent toward the cost of reconstruction and cleanup efforts just 10 days before Obama delivered his speech. Not only that — Obama was among 14 senators who voted against the bill.
