All of these states along the Eastern Seaboard, their budgets are already less than skeletal. They have nothing with which to pay for the necessary clean-up, repairs and human assistance they’ll face when the winds die down. All of these states will need, and will request, federal assistance to help. And that’s not unreasonable.
How much do you want to bet that Republicans in Congress will absolutely refuse to allocate a single dime for the relief effort unless significant cuts to government programs are enacted?
It wouldn’t be the first time conservatives were willing to use, if not create, a catastrophe to meet their sinister ends.
