Harvey heartless: The GOP reps who voted to stiff their fellow Americans

  • Published on September 13th, 2017

One hundred and seven Republicans in Congress – 90 members of the House and 17 Senators – have just voted against the Hurricane Harvey relief package, which raised the debt ceiling to avoid the threat of a government shutdown. The hall of shame includes House Texans Smokey Joe Barton (TX-06), Jeb Hensarling (TX-05), Sam Johnson (TX-03), and Mac Thornberry (TX-13), House Floridians Matt Gaetz (FL-01) and Ted Yoho (FL-03), and Senate Republicans James Lankford, from neighboring Oklahoma, and vulnerable Arizonan Jeff Flake.

“These ‘Harvey Heartless’ have just shown their utter contempt for Americans desperate to keep roofs over their heads. We respectfully suggest that those 107 Republican members of Congress hunker down at Mar-a-Lago with the debt ceiling to shelter them from incoming storms.”
