Today he learned he won&#39;t get one.</p><p>Last week on the morning show &quot;Fox &amp; Friends,&quot; Fox Business anchor John Stossel questioned the need for the Bureau of Indian Affairs.</p><blockquote><p>&quot;There&#39;s no Bureau of Puerto Rican Affairs or Black Affairs or Irish Affairs. And no group in America has been more helped in by the government than the American Indians. Because we have the treaties, we stole their land. But 200 years later, no group does worse,&quot; says Stossel.
