Terrific letters recently slamming Rep. Keith Rothfus's vote against the Hurricane Sandy relief bill. Just to hammer home the cravenness of his vote, it's important to understand that the bill exclusively allows for payment of claims made by our fellow citizens who were prudent enough to purchase and pay steep premiums for federal flood insurance. No pork, no earmarks, no pet projects; it just enables the government to meet its promises to policyholders. It's going to be a long two years.
