    Especially when it's based on a lie. Cruz and co weren't against helping, it was the nature of the bill presented. And that was WELL AFTER the storm relief, not during the storm. So this whole thread stinks of IT.
    The only thing that stinks about this thread is Cruz bringing up Sandy with his 'Lyin Ted' routine on historical revision; and that's according to REPUBLICAN congressmen ...

    What you call 'added BS' has been well documented as extremely necessary; this is just more silly dishonest historical nonsensical revision from 'Lyin Ted' ...

    Am I right that Gov. Cuomo was the first to offer assistance to TX?

    This criticism is coming from GOPs, as well as DEMs to a lesser extent. I would ndy add that infrastructure was rarely a problem until the US House changed hands in 2011.

    Will Texas Rep. Hensarling push for off-sets as he has for 6+ years? Cruz is still playing historical revision with Sandy aid ...
    When Cruz and others opposed additional funding for victims of Hurricane Sandy is because only 30% of the friggen bill would go to helping the least among them. 70% of the bill was PORK!

    And that was determined by the CBO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Too bad you can't detail the pork; especially according to REPUBLICANS in New York and New Jersey;

    Ted Cruz is a blatant outrageous irrational liar, BOIL, and lyingly started this discussion over Sandy all over again this past Sunday ...

    Again your partisanship is what is making you irrational. Peter King NY proposed the bill for increased spending for Sandy but the only way he could get it passed in the House was to adopt a bunch of goodies for votes. In the Senate they waited for the CBO report and 70% of the bill in dollars was to pork. No good senator worth their weight would vote for such a bill.

    Which party controlled the House at the time? Where's the pork?

    Accusing partisanship means you've already lost the debate ...

    I am not accusing partisanship in regard to the vote in the House on the bill. I am accusing you of partisanship for not recognizing the facts.
