This could have been in a Robin Williams Skit: Texas Republicans want a Federal Bailout to Pay for Their Incompetence reports David Gordon at Blog for Arizona.
Here are Gordon’s concluding observations.
Texas Republican incompetence and adherence to reactionary dogma caused the mess all Texans are in today.
That is not to say that the people in Texas should not be helped by the national government.
Of course, they should. The federal government has a responsibility to help all Americans victimized by a disaster.
So do other activist and philanthropic groups.
Many thanks should go to people like New York House Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who journeyed to Texas to help people in need and raise millions to assist them further.
Ted I’m flying to Cancun to get out of the cold Cruz could take a lesson or two in public service from AOC.
People, especially those voters in Texas should not forget that it was their Republican leader’s world view favoring free enterprise in the energy sector over regulation and preparedness that helped created the hardships and fatalities in some cases that Texans have had to endure for the last week.
They should be held responsible at the ballot box when they run again for election in 2022 and 2024.
