Listen to this radio interview from the Mayor of New Orleans.
"They are feeding the public a line of bull. And they are spinning. And people are dying down here."
Consider that for five days there were no National Guardsmen in New Orleans. Five days. And about a third of everyone in Iraq is part of the National Guard.
The National Guard has been sent to fight in a foreign war. And then they aren't here to protect us when we need them.
And we don't have the money to fix levees because we cut taxes on the rich and pay for a war and an occupation of foreign lands.
What's going to happen to all these devasted people when they file for bankruptcy? The GOP bankruptcy bill will keep them in debt.
They better fix that bankruptcy bill.
I saw an article mentioning that the Republican Congress is thinking about tax relief for people in the area.
Are they still going to repeal the estate tax on the wealthiest Americans?
New Orleans is a picture of poverty.
And the Republicans have been forsaking the poor.
This is a disgrace.
It didn't have to be this way.
