Homeland Security vs Natural Disaster
One year after Hurricane Katrina, and five years after 9/11, our nation is still struggling to rebuild and recover.
Do you think the government should spend more money on anti-terrorism measures or on averting and remediating natural disasters?
|12%|| Anti-terrorism. I wouldn't feel safe if less money were spent on preventing terrorist activity.|
|14%|| Natural disasters. Hurricane Katrina clearly showed that our country is not adaquately prepared to deal with major disasters. |
|21%|| Neither. I think the government should be worrying more about other national issues, such as universal health care or securing our borders against illegal aliens.|
|53%||Both. We need to prevent all kinds of disasters, even if it means raising taxes or cutting other budgets.|
