I don't see how 14 senators voting against a bill that obviously passed holds any merit regarding the OP. There "no" votes didn't have any impact
on the outcome.
We're talking about opinions of victims here and the impact political Pez heads had on those opinions. There are a lot of people who don't want the
feds meddeling in their business UNTIL disaster strikes and, when they need and ask for help, it pisses them off to have someone in DC vote "no."
I am not advocating the "blame" nor am I saying it was misplaced on either man (even though I wholeheartedly believe the full blame belongs on
imbeciles like Ray nagin and Mary Landreu who, even after the feds had said "GET OUT, SEEK SAFETY" were flapping their gums telling the people of
New Orleans "Everything will be fine, stand your ground, we will protect our city."), I am merely saying that the fact that there were politcians in
DC who snubbed their cry for help via a vote on the Senate floor is something that can absolutely stick with people for a long time, whether they
recieved the aid ultimately or not.
