Well this is helpful …
As rain continued to fall on Texas, Rep. Pete King was on Twitter taking stabs at Senator Ted Cruz because HEY, that makes total sense when Texas is in a state of emergency.
Ted Cruz & Texas cohorts voted vs NY/NJ aid after Sandy but I'll vote 4 Harvey aid. NY wont abandon Texas. 1 bad turn doesnt deserve another

Who knew Pete King was such an ass?
Pete must think people are just that ignorant or forgetful because we all know the Sandy Relief Bill was filled with pork spending that had NOTHING to do with helping NY/NJ.
The Sandy relief bill cost us over $50 billion but only $17 billion of that went directly to hurricane relief. https://t.co/VjCovcSH8a

Barely 20% of the monies they put into that bill would have helped those in actual need, the rest was allocated for pet projects. So the real villains in all of this were the people who thought their projects should be funded on the backs of Sandy victims.
But it’s not politically easy to point out the reality, is it, Pete? More fun to just attack Cruz for political points.
You're an idiot

Sure looks that way.
The swambster can't get over Cruz voting against bill that had more pork then help 4 Harvey & Sandy victims combined https://t.co/cqyPjJLAQu

Pete saw an opportunity to play politics with the lives of Texans.
You snake! The sandy funding bill was full of money requests that weren't related to sandy! THAT'S WHY! You liar

We know that, but far too many Americans don’t and will think Pete’s being honest.
Lying comes easy to some people.

Of course, they were against the Pork attached to the Sandy Bill, but that was directly for your benefit, so..

That was bc the bill included money not going to the victims but added pork you hack.

Rep. Pete King owes Ted Cruz an apology.
