Many angered after House does not vote on Sandy aid
Congress stumbled from one mess to another today.
New Jersey governor Chris Christie is furious over the House’s delay of a vote to 60 billion dollar aid package for Superstorm Sandy victims. Christie called his fellow republican House Speaker Boehner “gutless and selfish.”
It’s been two months since hundreds and thousands of homes and businesses were destroyed or damaged by the storm. Most have seen little or no relief come their way.
Illinois Congressman Peter Roskam says the speaker made a judgment call on the heels of the fiscal cliff vote, and while it angered many, it was not meant to be a slap in the face to those suffering in the northeast.
