Blueberry you may want to check the facts.

Here is one article from New Orleans CityBusiness dated June 6, 2005, which describes the MOST RECENT federal budget cuts in flood control projects for the New Orleans area.

"One of the hardest-hit areas of the New Orleans district's budget is the Southeast Louisiana Urban Flood Control Project, which was created after the May 1995 flood to improve drainage in Jefferson, Orleans and St. Tammany parishes. SELA's budget is being drained from $36.5 million awarded in 2005 to $10.4 million suggested for 2006 by the House of Representatives and the president."

There is plenty of blame to go around. Politicians have got to think beyond the short term and realize the long-term benefits of investing in infrastructure. Instead, this administration proposes another tax cut (the estate tax) costing around 60 billion a year in revenue.
