What WE NEED; The New WPA , CCC Camps and The "New" New Deal
There are going be hundreds of thousands of people needed to rebuild the gulf coast and New Orleans, we need a "new" New Deal program likd FDR's WPA and CCC camps. Use the people who are displaced with no jobs to rebuild the south. This would give them steady work to rebuild their lives, the top priority should be to give anyone displaced by the hurricane the first bid to jobs in rebuilding their own communities..
And how to pay for this:
Repeal the tax cuts for the richest Americans,
Put the chapter 7 bankruptcy back in place
Do not pass the bill that would do away with the estate tax
I think it is very clear now that we cannot live in a capitalist society without some socialism (as stated by Alan Greenspan) "The income gap between the rich and the rest of the US population has become so wide, and is growing so fast, that it might eventually threaten the stability of democratic capitalism itself.)
