Sandy-Harvey

Without doing a smidgen of reading on the topic, I'm going to bet that the Texans in the Congress who voted against aid in the wake of Superstorm Sandy are now tying themselves into rhetorical knots in order to justify asking for Federal aid for Texas for Hurricane Harvey.

Also, with FEMA now all over southern Texas and likely being there for years to come, I'll bet that damn few of them are worried about a "Jade Helm"-style FEMA takeover. And yes, I'm looking at you, Governor Abbott, you fucking schmendrick.

The list starts with Cornyn and Cruz, then goes to all but one of the House Republicans from Texas: Louie Gohmert, Ted Poe, Sam Johnson, Ralph Hall, Jeb Hensarling, Joe Barton, Kevin Brady, Michael McCaul, Mike Conaway, Kay Granger, Mac Thornberry, Randy Weber, Bill Flores, Randy Neugebauer, Lamar S. Smith, Pete Olson, Kenny Marchant, Roger Williams, Michael C. Burgess, Blake Farenthold, John Carter, Pete Sessions, and Steve Stockman.

John Culberson, R-Houston voted Aye, as did all but one Democrat, who was absent.

Whoops...forgot an honorable mention for Congressman Mike Pence, Indiana, who in 2005 lead the opposition to funding for Katrina relief p, unless offsets in other spending were made.

They're all scum who should be shoved into the back of a Gas Wagon. And yes, they are all doing exactly what you said. *spits*

No, no "gas wagon", just make them find offsets from other spending in Texas, since that's what they profess to believe.
