In 2012 Texas Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz led the attack on providing emergency relief for victims of Hurricane Sandy in New York and New Jersey. They charged the relief was only pork barrel spending, a waste of taxpayers' hard earned money.
Now 37,000 homes in Texas have been damaged or destroyed. Texas citizens who have lost so much need the same kind of emergency aid that New Yorkers and New Jeresians needed a few years ago. So far Senators Cornyn and Cruz have been silent or at least I haven't heard of any announcements from their offices.
Shortly before the storm President Trump was threatening to close down the Federal Government if the wall on the Mexican border wasn't funded. It is a good bet he will not carry out his threat now. Will Senators Cornyn and Cruz do anything to help their fellow Texans? Or will they attack emergency aid as pork barrel spending? We will have to wait and see.
