There is a bipartisan bill, introduced by Senators Patrick Leahy, Democrat of Vermont, and Christopher Bond, Republican of Missouri, and backed unanimously by the nation's governors, that would repeal the stealthy revisions. Congress should pass it. If changes of this kind are proposed in the future, they must get a full and open debate.

Perhaps you don't remember what happened with Katrina. People DIED because the governor and the mayor were incompetent.
People died because the levees broke and the levees were built by a federal group who built them to substandard levels.
No one held a gun to your president's head and made him say he was going to solve the problems. If he couldn't help in the first place, he never should have said he would. Your president got blamed because he was telling everyone about what a great job Brownie did, and how he was sending aid down immediately. He didn't have to say those things, if he didn't want to get involved he should have kept his mouth shut.
Well, maybe he had to get involved, because you can't seem to elect any competent politicians that can do the job.
It's not a right that should be held by a president? Then the next time your swamp overflows, don't call Washington, OK? Call Nagin.
Nagin was re-elected,by the people, but I guess those election results aren't good enough for you and the rest of those that want a federal dictatorship.
