White House intensified relief, PR Campaign

Comments By Martie

In an Associated Press article by Jennifer Loven, I quote: "The Bush administration kept its Hurricane Katrina response and public-relations campaign in overdrive Sunday, even as first confirmation came from Washington of a dreaded statistic: that the storm probably killed thousands of people.

Responding to accusations of racial insensitively!!!! Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said, "Nobody, especially the president would have left people unattended on the basis of race.

H-E-L-L-O !?!

Ok, would it be fare to say then that he might have a bias toward the category of rich vs poor? No? Well let's look at his economic policies. Who have they benefited?


When George Bush took office, the federal government had a 10 year projected surplus of $5.6 trillion. Now the Public Debt

As of September 5, 2005 is $7,948,923,361,663.45

This is a bill of $26,000 per citizen.

The debt goes up by $1.68 billion dollars a day. Who do you think will pay this? Tax cuts are for the wealthiest, not the low and middle class!!

Bush is pushing to resend the estate tax which the Republicans have cleverly termed, THE DEATH TAX

Who do you think that will benefit? How many of those people that are impacted by this storm and who are in the lower socio-economic categories are worried about paying estate taxes? How many of those people that are in the lower socio-economic groups are people of color Bush not insensitive to race/class? Condi, what planet do you live on?
