“House Republicans Disappointing and Disgusting”

Nope, that wasn’t a left wing nut saying that.  It was Republican Governor Chris Christie, after the GOP contingent skedaddled before voting on emergency aid, as they had promised,  for New Jersey and New York hit by Hurricane Sandy.

“Last night the House of Representatives failed that most basic test of public service, and they did so with callous indifference to the suffering of the people of my state,” said Christie. “Sixty-six days and counting — shame on you. Shame on Congres

Of course one can be shocked at Christie’s shock.  This is what Republicans do these days. Stand by your beliefs and the hell with the world outside.

 

Peter King (R-NY), another shocked Republican, with even less reason to be shocked, was unhappy himself.

“I’m saying right now, anyone from New York or New Jersey who contributes one penny to congressional Republicans is out of their minds,” he said in an interview on Fox News. “Because what they did last night was put a knife in the back of New Yorkers and New Jerseyans. It was an absolute disgrace.”

Rep Michael Grimn from Staten Island (also GOP) will return the Boehner stab in the back with a stab in the front: no vote for Speakership.

Rep. Michael Grimm said he will not support Republican Speaker John Boehner for re-election because of the “personal betrayal” he feels over Boenher’s refusal to permit a vote on Sandy aid, after a divided House finally OK’d fiscal cliff legislation late New Year’s Day.

“It’s not just me, I am speaking on behalf of all of New York and New Jersey,” said Grimm, who described himself as “extremely angry.”
