    And dammit, there are plenty of progressives like me down here who don't need to be the victim of natural disasters just because we were outvoted by assholes. These storms KILL. That's not a joking matter.

    The only appropriate political upside to take from this is the hope that, like during Katrina, that the poor response pf a government safety net starved by Republicans will open some stubborn eyes to the truth that we all need to help one another and chip in to make that happen.

    Bush never recovered from his bungling of Katrina relief, and as a result we got the Obama administration and the Pelosi congress and the ACA, which have saved many lives. Without those victories, many people would die for need of healthcare and in the wars in the Muddle East we'd surely be up to our necks in under Republican government.
