President Biden has sent generators, water, blankets, and meals to Texas, as Republicans sat around waiting for the weather to warm up.
According to the White House, here is what has been sent to Texas so far:
Per Deputy National Security Advisor Liz Sherwood-Randall, FEMA has sent into Texas:
— 60 generators & fuel to support critical sites like hospitals and water facilities
— 729,000 liters of water
— More than 10,000 wool blankets
— 50,000 cotton blankets
— 225,000 meals

Ted Cruz is vacationing. Gov. Greg Abbott is blaming AOC, and former Gov. Rick Perry told the people of Texas to wait until the weather warms up to unfreeze the natural gas pipes and restore power. President Biden is showing Texas Republicans how the government is supposed to function in a crisis.
Unlike the previous president, Biden is not dragging his feet or withholding aid based on whether or not the state voted for him.
Joe Biden promised to be a president for all Americans, and that is exactly what he is doing. Biden sees that Texans are freezing and dying, so he is sending help.
America once again has a president who will be there when he is needed. Biden is not blaming Texas Republicans, even though this crisis is all their fault. He is sending help, and hopefully, the people of the state will see Biden’s example and demand better from their government.
