In an editorial, "No Room for Politics in Disaster Relief," the afternoon "newspaper" attacks Democrats for something the Republicans did with Hurricane Sandy aid:
It has been suggested by some that politics will play a role in how quickly and decisively Congress responds to the massive flood disaster occuring now in Texas and Louisiana.
Democrat lawmakers may try to punish Texans for supporting President Donald Trump in the election last year, it has been speculated.
Who speculated this and which Democrats are they talking about? I spend a lot of my time reading and I have yet to see the mention of even one Democrat who is considering this option. (With its straw men and lack of any evidence, this certainly looks like a Mike Myer editorial.)
And New York and New England members of Congress, still smarting over delays in aiding Superstorm Sandy victims in 2012, may hold up relief for Texas and Louisiana, others say.
Again, who says this and how about the name of just one Democratic congressman?
And here is how Texas House Republicans voted on Hurricane Sandy:
Of the 24 GOP members of the Texas House delegation in 2013, all but one voted against the Sandy relief package in 2013. The one “yea” vote was Rep. John Culberson, whose district includes Houston.
And what did Wheeling "newspapers" say about the Republicans who voted against Sandy aid? I could not find any criticism. Thank goodness the Republicans weren't playing politics.
From an unrelated editorial in the morning Intelligencer:
Meanwhile, those who would divide us are nowhere to be found. That should surprise no one.
Hey, I just found one of those dividers writing editorials for the afternoon paper.
