Cruz is right; Sandy relief bill was filled with political pork

As the tragedy and hardships of Hurricane Harvey continue to pour into Texas, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was asked to defend his 2012 vote against relief aid for Hurricane Sandy that tore into the eastern seaboard that same year.

Cruz, who signed a letter in support for an immediate federal aid package for Harvey, was questioned about the difference in his support for relief this time by MSNBC’s Katy Tur.
