The Texas crisis has again shown how America is both unable and unprepared to protect its own people

The US’ poor national infrastructure has been highlighted once more this week, with shocking blackouts in Texas – the inevitable consequence of Washington spending its money on bombs rather than on investing for the public good.

After an unexpected big freeze, Texas is facing an unprecedented crisis. Hit with sub-zero temperatures, parts of the Lone Star State had no power and water for several days, and food supply chains were placed under severe strain. Recent reports suggest there have been 24 deaths.

Footage of long lines and empty shelves in grocery stores resemble scenes from countries against which America has issued sanctions or long mocked for being socialist. Yet, as the state struggles to thaw out, that’s not the only thing that’s frozen – so is the response from Washington. What are the federal government and Congress doing about it? Nothing.
