    not only 10 years of experience living in and around NYC, but also have family in Alabama near Tuscaloosa.  Remember those devastating tornadoes in 2011?  Politicians down there convinced the electorate that it was "okay" that they didn't fully fund projects to restore the area.  That's not something that a politician in the NY/NJ area could ever get away with.  King can't tell his constituents to pray instead of expect help from the government they way they do in the Bible-belt states.

    As much as I loathe King, he is technically a good political operator.  I hope he sways his caucus on this issue.  It is bullshit that the relief bill is even a fight.
