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.

    I don't know what he's angry about (well actually he has every right to be angry).

    IF Romney and the Repubs had WON the election (as HE campaigned for) — the result would have been THE SAME (NO aid)

    It's NOT a political issue.

    Repubs are CHEAP, HATEFUL, ANTI-HUMAN AZZ-HOLES who DON'T CARE about people in misery — UNLESS their annual income is over $1 Million.
