Boats Rose in New Orleans, but Not for the Poor

From the Washington Post, by Steven Pearlstein:
Boats Rose in New Orleans, But not for the Poor: "It is unclear whether we as a society find that morally unacceptable. If we do, we will have to accept slower economic growth and more aggressive redistribution of income through government tax and benefit and regulatory systems."

More aggressive redistribution of income? Sounds like pretty extreme socialism to me. Don't count on it happening in this capitalistic nation. People that want to live under that kind of an economic model should probably seek out another place to live.
