I'm flabbergasted. The House of Representatives passed the Hurricane Sandy relief bill today on the strength of Democratic support. Over 75% of House Republicans voted against the measure (179 out of 234). http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...p_ref=politics
Once again, Republicans have shown themselves to be unfit, indeed unable, to govern. It is shocking that so many of these Republicans, many of whom supported disaster relief in their own districts in the past, would be so indifferent to the suffering of their fellow citizens that they would vote to deny them disaster relief. It's also short sighted, of course, because if the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut region flounders economically, it will have a ripple affect that will hurt the entire economy.
Do any of you Republican JUBers find this vote disgraceful?
