Tomorrow Cogress will be returning from their summer (not) recess. They now have a great opportunity to show just how well they can do their job. We need to get funding for the relief effort for Harvey done ASAP. I know that the 115th Congress has not been very good at moving bill thru but this should be an unguarded slam dunk.
The entire Texas delegation, both Republicans and Democrats, House and Senate, should have had their staffs working on a bill since the first visit of President Trump. Now is the time, Congress is the place for our elected representatives to live up th the etymology of name of that august body…’to walk togeather’. This is not the time to deal in political issues and battles. Now is not the time to ‘one up’ you political opponent(s). Now is not the time to think about winners and looses. The only loosers are the people in the states hit by Harvey, be they from Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas or where every.
So, dear Congress, now we will see if you can do the job you were brought togeather for or are you just a collection of political hacks. Show the American people just what you can do.
