This was one of the interesting exchanges during Brownie's testimony last week:

Some people, including Michael D. Brown, the former FEMA director, have questioned why the agency spends so much money moving ice.

"I feebly attempted to get FEMA out of the business of ice," Mr. Brown told a House panel this week. "I don't think that's a federal government responsibility to provide ice to keep my hamburger meat in my freezer or refrigerator fresh."


For all the post-disaster posturing that those responsible have done, the plain facts are that in recent years FEMA has tried getting out of the business of supplying basic essentials to those affected by a disaster. They didn't even have contracts in place to source tarps for rooftops, and overspent to secure emergency quantities of them. That's not "managing emergencies" in my book.

It's no surprise that the trucking firm that was interviewed said they'd decline next time they'd be asked to haul for FEMA, and Americans will suffer as a result.
