Is Brownie still in charge?

$3.9B in hurricane aid still unspent -
Nearly 3½ years after those storms hit, new FEMA accounting reports show two-thirds of the money to pay for permanent rebuilding work still has not been spent, the latest bottleneck in a recovery long beset by criticism that it has been too slow and inefficient. And despite a handful of high-profile successes, officials who had vowed to speed up the pace of repairs concede it is still going far more slowly than it should.

If the government spends the stimulus money at this rate, we'll all be dead before we see a dime.
