The showrunners in charge of this season of the United States of America keep making the villains too cartoonishly, one-dimensionally evil:
President Donald Trump is promising billions to help Texas rebuild from Hurricane Harvey, but his Republican allies in the House are looking at cutting almost $1 billion from disaster accounts to help finance the president’s border wall.
The pending reduction to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s disaster relief account is part of a spending bill that the House is scheduled to consider next week when Congress returns from its August recess. The $876 million cut, part of the 1,305-page measure’s homeland security section, pays for roughly half the cost of Trump’s down payment on a U.S.-Mexico border wall.
What’s going to happen in the next episode, the House passing a health care bill that would take insurance away from 23 million people to pay for a massive upper-class tax cut?
