WASHINGTON, DC - Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid today issued the following statement:
“We must make sure that the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina never happens again. Democrats strongly prefer that the response to Hurricane Katrina be investigated by a commission of independent experts like the 9/11 commission.
“An investigation of the Republican Administration by a Republican-controlled Congress is like having a pitcher call his own balls and strikes.
“Americans deserve answers independent of politics. Our government must be accountable to the people.”
