The Weekly Democratic Party Address was delivered by Senator Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada.
(In the weekly Democratic address, Senator Catherine Cortez Mastro (D-NV) talked about federal response to recent hurricanes in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico.)
Senator Cortez Masto
I share in the frustrations of Americans in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands who feel forgotten and neglected. I encourage Americans to volunteer and donate to legitimate organizations helping in relief efforts. Every dollar and every volunteer hour spent brings hope and relief to the people of Puerto Rico and all those impacted by these tragic hurricanes.
“Right now, 3.5 million Americans are without power, food, and clean drinking water in Puerto Rico. Right now, hospitals on the island are unable to serve patients because backup generators do not have fuel. The elderly do not have their medicine. Puerto Ricans are fleeing flooded towns and cities with polluted waters, some with dead bodies floating in them, and looking to mountain streams to find safe drinking water. This is a public health crisis and must be treated like one.
“Senate Democrats are standing with the people of Puerto Rico.
