Harvey hit Houston and other Gulf of Mexico areas. It is referred to as a 500-year flood, which tells me this has never happened before. That's because 500 years ago, it was the start of the 16th century, and there was absolutely zero weather tracking back then for the Gulf of Mexico and pretty much anywhere else. Maybe there's archaeological evidence of a big flood in 1518? Probably not.

Regardless, now Congress has to face up to yet another big, expensive weather event.

Where does Harvey leave the Republican Congress on issues of funding the government and raising the national debt?

Where does Harvey leave President Trump on his plans to cut taxes?

How might Harvey change Republican politics?

A political adage goes, Where you stand depends on where you sit. Looks to me that Republicans now sit in dirty Texan flood waters. There's nowhere else to go, so it's come to cheeses time. IOW, get off your duffs and do something already!

Is your argument that federal assistance should provided if multiple people are damaged by natural causes? How many are needed before this help is given? Is the damage any less for a particular individual when too few people have significant damage?

Is it just politics? Lots of people being damaged is a lot of votes to sway? Groups matter while individuals not so much?
