Chip Roy objects to disaster relief passing unanimously because:
-It’s $19B & the House isn’t there to vote
-It doesn’t contain border money
-It’s not paid for

Rep. Jackie Speier was shot 5 times in the Jonestown massacre.
Years later, she’d ask a state lawmaker criticizing her assault weapons bill: "'Have you ever been shot by an assault weapon?’
“It was very effective in getting him to shut up and sit down.”

Trump on the disaster deal: “We’re going to get the immigration money later... I have to take care of my farmers with the disaster relief. If I didn’t do that -really it’s a long time in coming. … I didn’t want to hold that up any longer, so the answer is I totally support it.”
