HUD is falling down on the job, too
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 10:48 AM by cap
where is the rebuilding effort for all that public housing?

No one is talking about anything but trailers out in the middle of nowhere!

HUD is full of bush no-nothing cronies...

HUD needs to be investigated.

Getting folks into homes is a priority!

4. See this Democracy Now report on rebuilding NO
"As business leaders and government officials talk openly of changing the demographics of what was one of the most culturally vibrant of America's cities, mercenaries from companies like DynCorp, Intercon, American Security Group, Blackhawk, Wackenhut and an Israeli company called Instinctive Shooting International (ISI) are fanning out to guard private businesses and homes, as well as government projects and institutions. Within two weeks of the hurricane, the number of private security companies registered in Louisiana jumped from 185 to 235. Some, like Blackwater, are under federal contract.
