After we reviewed what he filed, we learned that the Republican bill provides much-needed funded for the victims of Louisiana's floods. But, it provides no funding at all to help the people of Flint. This is totally unfair.

Republicans are obstructing so many qualified justices from getting a vote. Senator Booker isn't taking it lying down.
