Plan for Nuevo New Orleans
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.
Tonight President Bush gave a shirtsleeve, open collar, no tie speech from New Orleans concerning the future of the city and its citizens. According to the plan, WE, the people, will rebuild New Orleans. WE, the people, will build the first century 21 city, Nuevo New Orleans.
The president called upon Congress to pass a plan quickly to provide federal publicly owned land to be given away free through a lottery. For this free public land, the winners must promise to build a home with more free government aid. "Homeownership," said President Bush, "is one of the great strengths of any community, and it must be a central part of our vision for the renewal." Also to be created is a "Worker Recovery Accounts" program for the evacuees to use for child care, education, and job training. The accounts would be funded with up to $5000 of taxpayer money per evacuee who requests aid.
I am so glad we have a conservative Republican President, otherwise, I might think this was just another liberal Democrat give-away program bound to fail miserably.
