According to the Times our local housing authority has received a $15 million grant to help with the rebuilding of the old El Paso Natural Gas (blue flame) headquarters.

Maybe they only consider government assistance to be a good thing when people with money receive it.
Of particular interest in this situation is the fact that the building is owned by our local billionaire.
We deserve better
