Can someone explain to me why it costs $100 per day to house somebody in a
tent? Unless they are serving Prime Rib from Ruth Chris' for dinner every
night, the three squares a day can't be that much.
This is what kills me more than anything. If they would just stop helping
us and give us the money they were going to spend anyway, we could have the
entire house gutted and rebuilt by now as well as give folks a two week
vacation at Disney World.
I just don't understand it.
The camps include air conditioned tents with wooden floors that have cots,
dining facilities serving three meals daily, washers and dryers, restrooms
FEMA pays about $100 daily per person to operate the camps, not including
administrative costs such as salaries for FEMA employees involved with them,
said Childs, the FEMA spokeswoman.
