Beto O'Rourke: Texas Volunteers 'Doing The Job The Government Should Do' - The Last Word - MSNBC



Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke and other Democrats have raised millions in relief for Texans suffering from the devastating winter storm. He joins Lawrence O’Donnell to discuss those relief efforts and how the lack of help from Republican leaders shows that Texans must “put people in positions of power who actually care for those that they represent and swear that they serve.” Aired on 02/22/2021.

4. Which argument supports GOP claims about government and volunteerism...
