Out-to-Lunch Democrat Rep. Nydia Velazquez demands 911-style commission to examine federal response to Hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico


As a native New Yorker I can't think of one thing Nydia Velazquez has done in all her years in Congress besides take up space. 

CNS News reports as Hurricane Florence came ashore in North Carolina on Friday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and several of her fellow Democrats held a news conference to mark the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Maria's devastating blow to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

One of those Democrats is demanding a 9-11 style commission to investigate Trump's response.

Rep. Nydia Velazquez(D-N.Y.), who was born in Puerto Rico, expressed outrage on Friday over President Trump's questioning of the new death toll number.
