Volunteer organizations worked through the night on Feb. 17 to deliver meals, water and generators to Houston residents, many of whom were still stranded in the dark in the midst of a crippling winter storm. Cara Adams, founder of Texas Relief Warriors, said she worries for seniors stuck in high-rise buildings with no way to get out and get supplies. Read more: wapo.st/3brnk4j.

    Thank goodness and brotherhood and sister hood. We are better than what trump has done to our United States of america. Perry, Tillerson trump, cruz.....the oil conglomerates who care just about profits and steal the god given order. Like in the nursing homes.....profit over care and need and upgrade. Shame , we can land perseverance on Mars but deny ; we are the children of god. 11 years ago a commission warned that the infrastructure has to be winterized ......you were just interested in deals with russia and Ukraine . There should be a class suit to thee politicians who rob the grace, it is sacrilegious , in the city of god you are defacing . Your hearts will be weighed.

    Cuomo thought he could get away with killing thousands of defenseless elderly people because the Washington Post would cover it up for him

    • Emily C
      Emily C

      @Roger Out I’m saying that Cuomo’s numbers should not have been that high. Cuomo’s numbers were the highest in the country & Trump sent him a hospital boat for the Covid patients. The complete incompetence of Cuomo, for which he will probably be re-called by Democrats, resulted in numbers so high, there was no reasonable explanation for it. Turns out, Cuomo killed THOUSANDS more than the unbelievably high numbers he reported. Trump was right that Cuomo was lying!

    • Roger Out
      Roger Out

      @Emily C so you're saying trump was lying about the deaths to make himself look better to his base.

      @Roger Out Trump was right about Cuomo lying about the numbers!

    • Emily C
      Emily C

      @Roger Out This question? Are you repeating the idea that Trump said Cuomo was inflating the numbers? I answered that: You are right. Trump had no idea that Cuomo was lying about how many defenseless elderly people were killed by Cuomo’s policy.

    Contrast the way Democrats and Republicans try to score political points in the wake of this disaster: Governor Abbott initially blames wind turbines and AOC's Green New Deal before being called out, and then blaming ERCOT. AOC raises more than $2million in 24 hours for relief efforts for a state she doesn't even represent. Abbott is going for an easy lay-up while AOC just scored a touchdown. Someone just scored more points, they're playing different games, and they're not even in the same league. Thank you, volunteers!

    AOC raises money for Texan's, Beto organizes food drives to feed his state's hungry while Ted Cruz escapes to Mexico. What is wrong with this picture? Maybe the Dems are as bad as right-wing media make them out to be.

      @Donna G Palk agreed it could have been sooner. AOC(Dem) has been able to raise $3 million so far, Beto (lost to Ted) is helping with wellness checks for the elderly. Ted is now back in the country now that he "dropped off the kids" so I am sure he will doing the same thing to help out...

      Agree but bide*n is the president and he has been conspicuously absent.and never sent aid to these Texans. ..and Americans in Texas have come together to help and feed each other.. So there is one person that is more responsible that is in the position to render aid..and That woman is amazing.

      @Renee Thomas Too bad that the federal government can deputized the National Guard, then therefore, they become federal military officers. Trump tried to in 2017 to enforce his illegal immigration act, but was denied by Homeland Security citing it was illegal to use it in that case. Not everyone you disagree with is a Karen. Have a nice cup of copium and calm down.

    So while Cruz was in Cancun, and fox, the governor of Texas, McCarthy, and other republicans were busy trying to blame AOC for the crisis in Texas, she was actually busy being productive, being a leader, and being a public servant of the people. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) helped raise more than $2 million in less than 24 hours to help bring relief to the state of Texas. On Thursday evening, Ocasio-Cortez announced she was partnering with several Texas charities and encouraged her millions of Twitter followers to donate money to help residents in Texas. "Team AOC is launching relief efforts for Texas starting today,” the New York Democrat tweeted Thursday evening. “Our first effort is a partnership w/5 Texas orgs getting on-the-ground relief to Texans ASAP. If you’re able, please donate here - it’ll split your contribution to all 5.” By Thursday night, more than $1 million had been raised, and by Friday morning, the charities raked in more than $2 million. The funds are being split between The Bridge Homeless Recovery Center, Ending Community Homeless Coalition, Family Eldercare, Houston Food Bank, Feeding Texas and several other charities.
