What was Ted Cruz doing? A standard GOP Establishment tactic of using the suffering of citizens affected by storm events to push the GOP's agenda (which is basically to lower taxes for the rich people who fund their campaigns while increasing taxes on poor people to balance the revenue lost by lower taxes for the tax bracket their rich donors are in). What Ted Cruz is doing can be illustrated by the following video by one of the GOP Establishment's ex- AND current leaders in political strategy, Eric Cantor;
What Cantor did above and what Ted Cruz did with Hurricane Sandy was basically vantage the same, i.e. turn the pain of the suffering to their political advantage.
This sort of hypocrisy by the GOP Establishment is normal. Not helping people when they are victims of a disaster (Proving they would make bad Presidents) followed by shamefully asking for Federal Aid when their OWN communities are affected SO THEY DON'T LOSE AN ELECTION... so they can block aid for victims again in the future. Such people shouldn't even be called Christian much less American!
Here are some extract from articles proving these GOP Establishment people's hypocrisy.
Furthermore, Rick Ungar, writing at Forbes, pointed out that the “pork” came from having to bribe red state Republicans — including Texas — in order to get the package passed over their filibuster, “However, as it turns out, the pork portions of the Senate bill were not earmarked to benefit Democratic members of the upper chamber of Congress…
The answer can be found in a quick review of the states that are set to benefit from the Senate’s extra-special benevolence—states including Alabama, Mississippi, Texas and Louisiana.”
The stunning hypocrisy doesn’t end there. It probably would have been helpful if Senator Cruz were familiar with where his own state fell on the FEMA hand out chart. See, Cruz represents the state with the most FEMA-declared disasters since the start of 2009, according to an iWatch News analysis. “The top two states, Texas and Oklahoma, combined for more than a quarter of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s declared disasters since Jan. 1, 2009.”
Notice that Ted Cruz uses the exaggerated debt crisis to oppose needed help for victims... like Jesus would have done i.e. when that woman asked him to help her dying/dead brother Jesus could have said 'no F*** Off'.... just like Ted Cruz said to New York's hurt people... but Jesus didn't he helped her. I thought that's what Christianity was about?
