Ted Cruz Demands Harvey Aid After Denying Sandy Aid. NY Congressman’s Response Is Epic

On the heels of Hurricane Harvey decimating Texas in what FEMA Director William “Brock” Long has called the “worst disaster in Texas history,” Texas Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn have already sought emergency relief. Both Senators, however, voted against aid for New Jersey and New York in 2012 in the wake of the disastrous Hurricane Sandy.

Rep. Pete King (R-NY) gave a scathing response to the hypocritical Senator.

“Ted Cruz was one of the leaders of trying to keep New York and Long Island and New Jersey from getting the funding we needed, and now he’s the first one in asking for aid for Texas. But as badly as I feel toward Ted Cruz, and what a hypocrite he is, I’m not going to take it out on the people of Texas,” King said before taking to Twitter to further castigate him.

Before Hurricane Harvey even made landfall, Cruz and Cornyn pressed the Trump administration to provide “any and all protective measures” for Texas. The request is, of course, a far cry from the anti-federal stances Cruz has espoused in the past.

In the face of these these Senators’ blatant hypocrisy, King just showed Texas what real leadership looks like.
