Boustany may have diagnosed Rita Amnesia, but he has done little to treat it

Boustany and Scalise to lead Republican Delegation on Tour of New Orleans

While Democrats meet in Denver next week to nominate Sen. Barack Obama as their presidential candidate, two Louisiana Republican House members will lead a group of their GOP colleagues on a tour of offshore drilling operations. "This will be an excellent opportunity to highlight how safe drilling is done offshore and to see how important it is to lift the existing congressional moratorium on drilling on the rest of the Outer Continental Shelf," Rep. Steve Scalise, R-Jefferson, said. Scalise and Rep. Charles Boustany, R-Lafayette, also plan to take Republicans on a tour of New Orleans to check on recovery progress since Hurricane Katrina struck nearly three years ago. "Congressman Boustany and I want to make sure our colleagues understand how much work still needs to be done to fully recover from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita," Scalise said. The New Orleans visit is slated for Aug. 25-26. House Democrats toured the city and other Gulf Coast communities last month to assess recovery progress. President Bush is due in New Orleans next week, just ahead of the Aug. 29 third anniversary.

This continues to GULL me more than ANYTHING… Boustany YET AGAIN is giving focus to NEW ORLEANS and while this BLURB mentions RITA there is likely to be no trip to the west to see the Devastation in Cameron and Vermilion… Such is the case with Boustany. Boustany may have Diagnosed the Country with Rita Amnesia, but he has done LITTLE to treat it.
