I find it interesting that some of the same people who voted down relief for "Sandy" and health insurance are ok with FEMA help and flood insurance for themselves. There is plenty of blame to go around for the mess in Houston. The land is flat, there are no zoning laws, there is an over abundance of hard scape (parking lots, freeways etc) and no place for water to go genius urban planning. Of course they will get help. That is why we have a country. I just hope the voters remember the negligence their elected officials are guilty of and make better choices.
