The Clarion-Ledger Editorial, 7/21/8

U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is scheduled to visit with a congressional delegation in tow on the Coast today in a repeat of last year, and it might not be pretty.

Pelosi came to a town meeting almost exactly a year ago to meet with victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Despite two years having passed since the storm hit Aug. 29, 2005, people at the Bay St. Louis meeting told story after story of private insurers and government only handing them more hardship.

The subject of insurance reform brought Pelosi and other Democrats then to tour the region and to tout a bill originated by 4th District U.S. Rep. Gene Taylor, D-Bay St. Louis.
