God forbid that the drought here gets worse - - killing crops, crushing farmers and further evaporating a Lake Michigan in record-decline - - or that Asian carp break free into the Great Lakes, or a super storm devastates a portion of the state (see tornado, Joplin, or flooding, 2010) - - and Sen. Scrooge McGrinch, a/k/a Ron Johnson has to ask his colleagues from Hurricane Sandy-ravaged, still-recovering New York and New Jersey for relief-measure votes.
His colleagues might also remember his 2011 vote against major disaster relief funding:
|Sept. 15, 2011||S Amdt 602||Emergency Disaster Relief Appropriations||Amendment Adopted - Senate
(62 - 37)
