Rebuild the Gulf. A plan
Hurricance Katrina was a disaster that effected all Americans. As such it will take a commitment from all of us to rebuild our gulf coast stronger than ever. My idea is to rebuild the gulf coast by creating a new national diaster respose apparatus modeled after the national guard but staffed by civilians. A domestic peace corps comprised of the best firemen, policemen, nurses, garbegemen, bus drivers etc ready to be mobilized at a moments notice to assist in disaster areas. By joining all americans could earn money for college, citizenship if not a US citizen and new skills that could be used for career aspirations. I propose to finance my idea by rolling back the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 10 % of taxpayers. Returning that tax braket to pre-bush levels is a sacrifice that im sure many of our fellow americans effected would gladly make for the security of knowing that any time disaster strikes a trained , capable force made up of Americans of all stripes stands ready to help.Rebuild the Gulf.
