Federal monies unspent? Pshaw

PoliPundit has 8 Katrina predictions from a National Guardsman who was active on the ground in New Orleans. I agree with his first 7 predictions. Number 8 I find tough to believe, though:
8. The funds allocated by Congress will not be completely used.
Doubtful. Even if the disaster costs less than what Congress has set aside, the money will be spent completely. I could take the opportunity to poke at NO & LA's historic corruption, but that would be unfair, because every state and city would find a way to spend every last penny that came to them. Which is why I can't fault James Sensenbrenner for voting no because he wanted more controls placed on the funds.
