Democracy Now! Report: BUSH Plans to Demolish 4,500 Public Housing

Republican Congressman Richard Baker

The Bush administration has given the Housing Authority of New Orleans the go ahead to demolish the city’s four largest public housing complexes. The Department of Housing and Urban Development approved the demolition of the 4,500 housing units on Friday. Democratic Seantor Mary Landrieu criticized the ruling but other lawmakers have endorsed such moves. Shortly after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, Republican Congressman Richard Baker said: “We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn’t do it but God did.”

OBM: Remember .....most of these units were not flooded or damaged by the storm. The residents have been trying to get back into their homes since the storm ended. Fences have been used to prevent the residents from entering their homes allowing the apartments to go un-kept and with out maintenance or utilities. There is no honest reason for this to be happening. The so-called media has not and are not reporting this government & corporate theft. Someone please get a mesg. to Al Sharpton & Jesse we desperately need to march in New Orleans to shut this down.
