New Orleans proves Democratic failingsTopics: Natural Disasters
Here's an interesting "letter to the editor" that I found in the "Hawaii" Star Bulletin. The writer deserves some credit for nailing New Orleans Democrats for their propensity to promise much and deliver little:
The disaster in New Orleans has shed light on what Democrats promise vs. what they deliver. After 60 years of unimpeded control, Democrats had time to turn New Orleans into a sparkling liberal utopia with no crime, great public education and prosperity for everyone. In reality, they did the opposite. After 60 years of Democratic control, New Orleans schools had an achievement index of 1, on a scale of 1-10. Poverty and welfare rates were among the highest in the nation, and future job growth was projected to be -1.94 percent before Hurricane Katrina. The national average is 10 percent. Crime rates were also among the worst in the nation. New Orleans' homicide rate is 10 times the national average. And corruption was as well known as the Cajun food.
After 60 years, Democrats have given New Orleans crime, poverty and corruption, and there is not a single Republican to blame. Let New Orleans be a lesson to us all about what Democrats promise vs. what they deliver.
