Bush Breaks Promise to Rebuild New Orleans "Higher and Better" Than Before

From Today's Washington Post:

"The Bush administration said yesterday that the cost of rebuilding New Orleans's levees to federal standards has nearly tripled to $10 billion and that there may not be enough money to fully protect the entire region."

What happened to President Bush's promise that he will rebuild New Orleans "higher and better" than before Katrina destroyed the area? If the President does not live up to his word, how can we ever expect homeowners and businesses to return to a region that may fall again during the next Hurricane season? Our Administration must do better than this.
