Clinton: The FEMA Disaster

With the clean up coming up on two years after the Katrina disaster -- Sen Hillary Clinton (D-NY) wants the US to guard against another disaster like the response and recovery.

The Democratic Presidential candidate wants a national insurance backup fund.

"We have to rebuild an effective, functioning, qualified emergency system. I think we've got to get it out of the Department of Homeland Security, where it's mired in a dysfunctional bureaucracy." Sen Hillary Clinton (D-NY), in an interview with The Associated Press.
President Bush moved FEMA to the Department of Homeland Security after 9/11. Critics say that's left the US unprepared to handle natural disasters.
