    Default 2008 FPS and politics

    OK, let me see if I understand.

    2008 FPS funds are broken down like this:

    Population Size Maximum Federal Share
    More than one million: $2,750,000
    500,000 to one million: $1,750,000
    Less than 500,000: $1,000,000

    of that money, groups that supported President Obama received this:

    $749,987 IAFF
    $779,520 Chicago
    $997,402 Acorn (New Orleans) (which is 99.7% of the funds for populations less than 500,000-N.O. has pop. of 310,000)

    makes you want to go hmmmmm

    And my neighboring department, that serves 10,000 households couldn't get $12,000 for their fire prevention program.
