1. Like the houses in Louisiana do right now.
And they'd charge you a billion dollars to do it.

2. You'd never know
because you couldn't afford to stay there and see it.

3. I don't think Halliburton is anything but the middleman.
THEY get the $$, and then hire subs, probably at minimum wage or less, to actually do the work!

10. Paying only $4.50!
Can't remember where I heard this but they got a deal to pay LA workers only $4.50 instead of $5.15..... :puke:

5. They'd never finish it...
...but they'd continue billing you for it's construction forever. Cost overruns, you know...

6. A cardboard box?
And it would cost about $500,000.

9. *under my opponents plan, her house would be burned to the ground..."
If only Darrell Hammond knew how right he was. (Presidential Bash 2000 on SNL, if y'all remember that.)
