Toni McElroy and Kevin Whelan: Rebuild New Orleans, Rebuild America

By Remy Benoit

From Tom Paine Toni McElroy and Kevin Whelan: Rebuild New Orleans, Rebuild America.

Why not a new CCC or a new WPA? How can we expect to rebuild other countries if we can't take care of our own?

We need to ask why we don't take care of our own.

It has been 17 months and we are going nowhere fast. That is just not acceptable and there must be some accountability demanded.

With campaigning already in full swing for '08 isn't there a candidate for the state/federal level with a real, practical plan for rebuilding? There only will be if you demand one.

Taking money from one levee project to put it in another is absurd, and inherently unproductive.

Louisiana Speaks.


The promise was made to take care of the Gulf Coast. The Gulf Coast residents, like those in other disaster areas, are waiting for the promise to be fulfilled.

With the bad weather, cattle freezing to death, crops destroyed by frost, etc., we face a tough year ahead on many levels.

Speak up, America, and check the article just below this one for lots of links where you can speak up.

We are a CAN DO nation. Let's do it.
