Yes, it’s the fault of the companies for cheating the government and us, the taxpayers. But this is what happens a lot when you start throwing around millions and billions of dollars in government contracts. There will always be fraudsters that use the system of big, slow moving government – not to mention payoffs of public officials. Frankly I find it miraculous that the companies got caught. I guess they just didn’t pay off the right people.
On Aug. 28, 2018, the Atlantic published a piece declaring: “A Year After Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico Finally Knows How Many People Died.”
The subtitle adds: “A new, definitive study from George Washington University finds that almost 3,000 people lost their lives – and highlights the government’s failures before and after the storm.”
No bias there, right?. But to which government are they referring? Well, since the Atlantic.com leans decidedly left, we can guess which government, or more succinctly, which administration.
But what should first jump off the page is that GW University had to do a study to determine the figure. And the figure is deceiving at best. President Trump is correct to discount the 3,000 person mark.
