Senate Democrats' Plan for the Gulf

The Raw Story has an advance version of the Senate Democrats' relief plan for Katrina, covering the following areas. Click through for the details:
  • Ensuring health care for all displaced victims
  • Getting victims housing
  • Getting victims to family members and friends
  • Getting students into school
  • Bringing victims’ families together and placing them with other families
  • Getting victims cash to meet other basic needs
  • Providing financial relief to victims and National Guard
  • Ensuring victims have access to food
  • Restoring order
  • Helping victims get jobs
  • Supporting the National Guard
  • Requiring accountability
This is not meant as a long-term plan, it's just a relief plan, but it's more than I've seen from Senate Republicans or the President. It's a great place to start the conversation.

It's official now, available from Atrios and DailyKos.
