NEW YORK - August 29 - Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., and Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., will join Campaign for America's Future co-director Robert Borosage and ACORN New Orleans lead organizer Stephen Bradberry on a conference call with reporters on Tuesday morning to outline the failures of the federal government's response to Hurricane Katrina one year after the storm's landfall. With Hurricane Katrina still haunting the White House, President Bush plans to deliver a major speech today from New Orleans.
Rep. Clyburn will join the call from New Orleans while touring the Gulf Coast region with 25 House Democrats to mark the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. During the conference call, participants will release a new report by the Campaign for America's Future that details how the conservative ideology of disinvestment, cronyism and corruption has failed America in both the rescue and the rebuilding of the Gulf Coast.
