We don't even really need government money to help those people. Search your closets for blankets and clothes you forgot you even had. Buy a case of water and some non-perishable food and send it to them. Get a few able bodies friends together and come help them rebuild their homes, instead of going to Hawaii for a vacation. If everyone in the country did things like that there would be plenty of help for every natural disaster. That's a hell of a lot better than sitting on our asses waiting for the government to do something! It is our job as fellow Americans to help each other in times of need.
And i don't just say this for Texas. This is what people should do EVERY time something tragic happens.
