What a shocker. Keeping people in cushy positions and other jobs. Was a cost/benefit analysis done?

The government will continue to provide psychological and other support to people affected by the earthquake and tsunami after that five-year period, it said.

Who are they kidding here? All this sounds like to me is an appeasement to those that are still suffering!

A place to live, gainful employment, and stability in their lives would go a long way to assist people.

The special budget for rebuilding, which is separate from the general account, and subsidies for helping affected municipalities will be maintained.

Is this ‘special budget’ the supplementary reconstruction tax they’ve been making everyone pay - or is that temporary tax something different?
