Reid: Americans Deserve Answers Independent of Politics

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.”
