Help for Houston
With Hurricane Harvey hitting Houston, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz wanted Congress to pass an aid bill to support the people of Texas. But when Hurricane Sandy destroyed the northeast, the senators from Texas voted “no” on aid for them.
The way I see it, it is wrong that Texas comes, hat in hand, asking for aid after voting to deny aid to others who are suffering for a hurricane disaster. And if I were a senator from the northeast I would tell Texas that they should get down on their hand and knees and beg forgiveness before I’d give them a dime of aid.
Yes, it is wrong to deny Americans in Texas aid during a disaster. But it is also wrong for Texas to vote against aid for Americans in New York and New Jersey, and Texas should have to at least confess their sins and ask the rest of America for absolution.
