As everyone in Louisiana knows there was often no communication or coordination between the state and federal government in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
In my home State of Louisiana several institutions of higher education have been impacted by both Hurricanes Katrina and Rita literally dozens across the entire State.
On Thanksgiving I will stop to give thanks that my family is safe and healthy especially because I realize that following the tragedies of this year it is all too real a possibility that they might not have been.
My background is in health care.
When I ran for Congress I promised to help make health care affordable again.
