Republican Louisiana Senators Bill Cassidy and John F. Kennedy both voted against disaster relief for their respective states.
Both Cassidy and Kennedy did not vote on the bill, which would provide disaster relief for Louisiana:
Cassidy and Kennedy voted against the bill to keep the government open and raise the debt limit. The bill includes disaster relief for their respective states. Murkowski and Collins no vote. Debt seems to be a straight party line in the clash with Dames over the ceiling

The total cost of the damage from Hurricane Ida could reach 70- $ 80 billion. The people and businesses of the state urgently need help. The primary job of a U.S. senator is to help them in their state after a natural disaster, but Cassidy and Kennedy put their team first.
Republicans are so desperate to stop President Biden that they are willing to deny their own material disaster relief.
The vote of Kennedy and Cassidy is the middle finger to the people of Louisiana. They represent a new low in the Republican Party’s message that people come to the end.
Democrats should only provide disaster relief as part of a disaster ceiling package, and Republicans should be forced to repeatedly stab the American people.
Mitch McConnell is pushing Senate Republicans out of the mountains, and don’t forget national votes like this because when people desperately needed help, Republicans put their party first.
