    Cruz, Texans accused of hypocricy on Harvey aid

    By New Jersey and New York GOPs with respect to Hurricane Sandy:

    Cruz, Texans accused of hypocrisy on Harvey aid - POLITICO

    This criticism is coming from GOPs, as well as DEMs to a lesser extent. I would 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 ...

    This is why you don't vote against sending disaster relief to another state - the entire purpose of the union is to scratch each other's backs.

    Yep, I remember that. And also for YEARS after Katrina the Republicans in those States went back to the Feds year after years with their hands out begging for more and more money. But when Sandy hit the Northeast those same Republicans voted AGAINST giving Aid to NY and NJ.

    They are all for States rights and the States taking care of themselves until it's their states that need help. The GOP is filled with assholes, from top to bottom.

    That said I hope politics is pushed aside here and Texas gets all the help FROM THE FEDS that they need. I would never want to be seen as petty and unfeeling as the Republican a'holes in Congress.

    Not according to the posters before me, though I might have expected this from you.

    With a new storm on the Atlantic and Harvey breaking up into two new storms, the time is NOW for immediate Congressional approval of Harvey aid, followed quickly in a perfect world by a desperately needed Infrastructure bill.

    Some people obviously have failing memories when it comes to GOP reaction to previous natural disasters in DEM areas ...

    Actually this is all silly nonsense. It wasn't the aid they were against, it was all the added BS. Dear lord can this get any dumber?

    Most of the lawmakers who commented on the 2013 Sandy appropriation couched their opposition in terms of fiscal responsibility. The issue, they said, was that the Sandy bill had been larded down with non-Sandy and non-emergency spending. “Emergency relief for the families who are suffering from this natural disaster should not be used as a Christmas tree for billions in unrelated spending," Cruz said then.
    More than 20 Texas representatives and senators voted against Sandy aid. How will they vote on Harvey? - LA Times

    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.
