Just because you disagree with some politics, they wish to withold aid from Americans who are in crisis.

"Withhold?" Who wants to withhold aid to West, Texas?

And the link is dead.

Are you talking about federal aid to West, Texas? Obama has promised to send FEMA money. I have no opinion on this either way, but it seems to me that as terrible as the West explosion was that it's very limited in scope. What's the argument for federal disaster aid? I mean aside from it'd look bad politically if Obama didn't send it.

Most of the commentary on this I've seen has been about how Sen. Cruz and Rep. Forbes rushed to the White House to authorize relief funds... after having voted against FEMA relief to the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
