Republican Senators Kills Bid for Katrina Commission

Can you say cover your ass mode? Republicans don't want answers to what went wrong regarding Katrina and they don't want a safer Homeland and a better response to the next disaster. Not one Republican Senator. Not McCain, Not Hagel, Not one Moderate Republican, NOT ONE!!! could rise above their partisanship and vote for America over party. - IFK Editor

Senate Kills Bid for Katrina Commission
WASHINGTON - Senate Republicans on Wednesday scuttled an attempt by Sen. Hillary Clinton to establish an independent, bipartisan panel patterned after the 9/11 Commission to investigate what went wrong with federal, state and local governments' response to Hurricane Katrina. The New York Democrat's bid to establish the panel — which would have also made recommendations on how to improve the government's disaster response apparatus — failed to win the two-thirds majority needed to overcome procedural hurdles. Clinton got only 44 votes, all from Democrats and independent Sen. Jim Jeffords of Vermont. Fifty-four Republicans all voted no.

Can you say "We don't want another ridiculous commision like the 9-11 one that was just a political circus".

If you want to solve a problem, you don't give a group of camera hogging politicians a forum with a camara.

I was reading a celebrity blog this mroning and couldnt figure out how to post this.

For the record, there is an awesome free blog service that uses wordpress instead of this which is more feature rich than these blogs and it is totally free. Hosting and all! If you want one or ten of them their link is clubblogs.com

Anyway, thanks for letting us visit : )
