Bobby Jindal and FEMA

Bobby Jindal takes up the case against FEMA. My take is that these things get slapped together in a hurry in an emergency. Many people looked the other way with regards to health hazards in the wake of disasters like Katrina. That doesn’t mean problems and mistakes should be swept under the rug. He may only be grandstanding, but I don’t see any other congressmen or Senators taking up the case here, if any other representatives are speaking out about this.

“Further, case studies show that even if residents followed FEMA’s guidelines on appropriate ventilation of trailers, high levels of formaldehyde can remain,” Jindal said.

    US President Tim Kalemkarian, US Senate Tim Kalemkarian, US House Tim Kalemkarain: best major candidate.

    Democrats Melancon and Waxman took up the issue of FEMA trailers last summer, months before Jindal made an issue of it. Jindal was a day late and a dollar short with his grandstanding. And when push came to shove, he missed a meeting with the head of FEMA as part of his position on the House Committee on Homeland Security. I am assuming that he was campaigning since his congressional office could not tell me what he was doing that day.
