After Senate Democrats voted against a supplemental disaster relief bill that would help recovery efforts for Americans affected by the recent hurricanes that ravaged Florida and Puerto Rico, Senator Marco Rubio has just announced that an “agreement” has been reached that can “pass both house of Congress,” and ultimately get signed by President Trump.

“Disaster funding should not be a partisan issue, yet for months, Congress has repeatedly played politics with much-needed aid at the expense of local communities in Florida, Puerto Rico, and around the nation that are struggling to recover,” Rubio said.

“Tonight, the Senate had a chance to provide billions of dollars to these disaster-stricken communities, including $600 million to Puerto Rico. Tonight, my colleagues had the opportunity to choose action over obstruction. Shamefully, Senate Democrats said no.”
