Peter Roskam Votes Against Hurricane Harvey Relief

Peter Roskam Votes Against Hurricane Harvey Relief

Once again Congressman Roskam shows he is playing politics by cruelly voting to deny victims of flooding in Houston the relief they need. Instead, Roskam voted against a bipartisan bill that was supported by President Trump, Democrats, and a majority of Republicans.

Instead, Roskam sided with extreme Tea Party Republicans. There is no excuse for this.

First, Congressman Roskam denies climate science, and now he denies help to those who need it because of the affects of climate change. The people of Florida will need our help next, and Congressman Roskam has again displayed his cowardice by ignoring the needs of people who are suffering by casting an extreme vote. Furthermore, his vote against the debt ceiling shows he’s willing to hold the entire world economy hostage for his political ambitions.

Congressman Roskam should face the voters and explain himself. Sadly, we all know that won’t happen.
