Toxic FEMA Trailers - Congressional Hearings

Henry Waxman's oversight committee has just opened an investigation into FEMA's response to reports of toxic trailers. As previously discussed in an earlier article at the Lair, the Katrina refugees who have lived or are still living in the FEMA trailers are suffering from the effects of formaldehyde poisoning.

Following are videos of the hearings and the testimony of inhabitants of these trailers as well as a quizing of FEMA administrator David Paulison who just keeps regurgitating the same lame excuses and empty promises. Thanks to Nancy Pelosi for posting these videos for all to see. (Now if she would only put impeachment back on the table! Make the call 202/225-0100)
