   One GOP Texan is already saying that the money should be dripped dripped dripped into the State, instead of actually having the money to help rebuild.    Reminder for those not in TX - lots of communities, not just Houston have been effected by Harvey.

Don't forget.... they not only voted it down....they also wanted "offsets" for any funds they did approve. In other words, something somewhere was going to lose funding because of the "offset" item in the Sandy Bill.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if the East Coast Congress folk don't create an offset item for the Harvey bill.

Republicans claim they voted down the Sandy relief bill because it was filled with pork. Don't believe them

 

 

A platoon of Texas lawmakers who voted against aid for victims of Hurricane Sandy in 2013 are scurrying to explain their votes in advance of being asked to vote for the same relief in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

 

The explanation they’ve crafted almost unanimously to avoid being tagged as hypocrites is that they favored Sandy relief, but the bill they were presented as senators and representatives was filled with unrelated pork. As supporters of fiscal responsibility, you see, they simply couldn’t in good conscience vote for the $50.5-billion relief measure.

 

Don’t believe them. According to an incredibly detailed analysis performed in 2013 by the Congressional Research Service, virtually every cent of the Sandy relief bill was related to damage from that storm.

 

Yes the vote against Sandy was political, now the shoe is on the other foot and they have some crow to eat or some lying to do.

 

What do you think they'll do?
