“Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and fires destroy homes, devastate families and take lives.  Texans shouldn’t have to suffer these tragedies and then be forced to overcome another disaster like Republican Congressman Chip Roy. 

Roy arrogantly acted alone to snatch billions of dollars away from Texas families still reeling from raging storms and flood damage.  He’s put at risk crucial disaster assistance that is essential for thousands of Texas families to repair and restore not just their homes, but their lives.

Roy’s move is straight out of the Trump/Cruz I’m right, you’re wrong, to hell with anyone else playbook.  Any doubt Chip is a Trump Republican and a Ted Cruz protégé can be set aside.”
