At his stop in Bay St. Louis, Miss., on the second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the nation's worst natural disaster, George W. Bush complimented Congressman Gene Taylor, the Democratic Congressman who lives in the Bay.
"Gene Taylor cares a lot. I'm proud to be here with Congressman Taylor. Gene was raised here. The Taylors' daughter was married right there recently. This is where he told me he was baptized, married, and if you're compassionate enough, will be buried. (Laughter.) In other words, this is home. And when you're talking about a man's home you hear a sense of passion in his voice. The Congressman has worked hard to make sure the people down here are well represented and he's doing a fine job for the people of southern Mississippi. Congressman, thank you for being here. (Applause.)"It is right that Bush compliment Congressman Taylor, who has worked tirelessly, as has his entire staff, to provide governmental assistance in the district's greatest time of need.-President George W. Bush, August 29, 2007
Too bad Bush didn't come here at Katrina's Ground Zero to announce he is throwing the entire weight of the White House behind H.R. 3121 so that American families and businesses can have one policy that provides both wind and flood coverage.
Let's tell the White House that we want ONE policy for both wind and water and that H.R. 3121 is the way to do it. Believe me, you'll have peace of mind knowing you gave Bush a piece of yours. ;)
Call the White house at 202-456-6213 or 202-456-1111 and tell the operator that you have a message to relay to Mr. Bush. As always, be polite. It goes such a long way. ;)
Hello, my name is ______. I live in (city, state). I would like Mr. Bush to know that I support one policy for both wind and water and that I support H.R. 3121. I would very much appreciate it if he would come out publicly in support of helping Americans in gaining this important part of our financial security. It's a specific kind of homeland security that is basic and fundamental to American families and businesses.
Email Bush at email@example.com.
Dear Mr. Bush,
I am writing to let you know that I support one policy for both wind and water and that I support H.R. 3121. I would very much appreciate it if you would come out publicly in support of helping Americans to obtain this important part of our financial security. It's a specific kind of homeland security that is basic and fundamental to American families and businesses.
