The House today passed an appropriation of $51.8 billion for Katrina-related expenditures. Guess whether Sensenbrenner voted with the 410 who were for it or the 11 who were against it. Go ahead, guess. That's right, he voted no.
We'll be waiting to see how he tries to justify this decision. The people who need their government to help them recover from this terrible tragedy are lucky that most members of Congress are more compassionate.
