Texas Senators voted no on Sandy relief, but now the state of Texas feels they are entitled to federal funds for a private sector incident? They have also previously asked for funds for wildfires and droughts too!
Meanwhile Governor Rick Perry rejects federal funds allocated and intended for women's healthcare.
Texas should get absolutely nothing. Zero federal help. If it's not acceptable for others to get it, then they should "pull themselves up by their boot straps", and make the corporation that caused all the damage pay for all the damage. Besides all that, didn't they say they want to secede?
We should be ashamed of this. Stats from UNICEF.
