Ted Cruz Blocks Emergency Relief To Flint But Demanded Aid For Texas
According to a report in Politico, Sen. Ted Cruz is standing in the way of a bipartisan relief package for the city of Flint, Michigan, where residents suffered lead poisoning as a result of a catastrophic budget-saving move from the governor’s office.
The Texas Republican placed a hold on the aid bill even after Senate Democrats agreed to concessions in spending, stopping the bill from coming to a vote by the full Senate.
Before blocking the measure, Cruz responded to the Flint water crisis by distributing bottled water to anti-abortion crisis pregnancy centers in the city.
This is far from Cruz’s first go-around in holding up emergency aid bills: He also opposed aid for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
However, the presidential candidate is more than happy to request federal dollars for relief projects in his home state.
