Pa. Dems: Barletta ‘Fails to Deliver’ After the Snow Storm

BarlettaThe Pennsylvania Democratic Party is targeting Congressman Lou Barletta (R-Luzerne) after the Trump administration denied a request for federal cleanup aid after the snowstorms that hit the northeast in March.

“Congressman Lou Barletta can secure Trump’s help for his next political campaign but can’t secure Trump’s help to provide FEMA aid after record-breaking storms in Northeastern Pennsylvania,” Pa. Dems spokesman Max Steele said in a statement.  

According to the Associated Press, Barletta had urged Governor Tom Wolf to make the request to FEMA, saying the cleanup overwhelmed local budgets.  

It was reported last week that Trump talked to Barletta about a possible run for the Senate.  

This is not the first time the Trump administration has denied money to states for cleanup assistance, they denied North Carolina $929 million of cleanup aid.  

PoliticsPA has reached out to Barletta’s campaign for comment.

  1. Lou is an empty suit. Can’t even deliver on something simple. There should be collective outrage in that part of the state for what Trump did. He denied them federal funds while patting Lou on the back to run. Who looks more foolish here?

  2. A snow job on the snow storm? Democrats are really scraping the bottom of the barrel.

  3. Record-breaking snowstorms?? How is that possible if we have “global warming”, Trump “snorted”. Did anybody else notice all the Trump snorts in the interview with Lester Holt? Back to the good old days of debates with HRC. Now you know the “tell” when Trump is really lying BIGLY.
