|Hold hearings and get to the bottom of mistakes that were made in preparing for, and responding to, this disaster. Should the Administration continue cutting FEMA's mitigation programs, filling in wetlands, and de-funding levee upgrade projects when the catastrophic results are so very clear? Should a political insider be running FEMA? What role does global warming have in making these hurricanes more deadly? Why didn't the Louisiana National Guard have adequate personnel and equipment for disaster response? * Call for shared sacrifice. Further tax cuts for the wealthy -- such as permanent repeal of the estate tax -- are morally repugnant and would likely devastate the charitable giving that will be a key part of recovery efforts.|
