Sen. John Kerry: 'Can't Turn Your Back'



    (NECN) - Sen. John Kerry says that government needs to take care of its citizens in the wake of such disasters as the tornadoes in western Massachusetts and the May 22 catastrophe in Joplin, Mo.

    "Your can't really turn your back on people that are hurting and communities that are getting hit one way or the other," the senator said of the role government must play in getting people relief.

    "The United States of America is not so broke that we can't do what's necessary to take care of our citizens," Kerry said.
