President Obama's Statement on Boehner Refusing To Hold Vote For Sandy Relief

by: Oreo

Statement by the President on the Status of the Administration’s Supplemental Request to Congress for Response, Recovery and Mitigation Related to Hurricane Sandy

It has only been two months since Hurricane Sandy devastated communities across New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut as well as other eastern states. Our citizens are still trying to put their lives back together. Our states are still trying to rebuild vital infrastructure. And so, last month, working closely with the Governors of the affected states, I sent Congress an urgent request to support their efforts to rebuild and recover. The Senate passed this request with bipartisan support. But the House of Representatives has refused to act, even as there are families and communities who still need our help to rebuild in the months and years ahead, and who also still need immediate support with the bulk of winter still in front of us.

When tragedy strikes, Americans come together to support those in need. I urge Republicans in the House of Representatives to do the same, bring this important request to a vote today, and pass it without delay for our fellow Americans.

Will Chris Christie be the next Charlie Crist? (0.00 / 0)
Seriously, if you heard him today railing against the House GOP and especially John Boehner....and he's RIGHT -- there was money for Katrina, and the droughts, and the fires, and the tornadoes but now that it's blue states? Crickets.

Try and win in Iowa in the GOP primaries with THAT!

if the dem ticket in 2016 is christie/crist. at one time it would have been an unbeatable GOP ticket (capturing NJ and FLA and lots of middle of the road voters would have made a gop win of at least 300 EV a lock)

Christie/Crist (0.00 / 0)
could use:

for a bumper sticker:)

of course christie is already cubed....
