    Oh, here we go with the faux outrage about how terrible the repubs are because they didn't vote on hurricane relief. Well.............then I guess the dems should NOT have stuffed the bill with so much pork! If the dems had ANY ethics at all and were serious about getting a vote on the bill, they would have made the bill ONLY about hurricane relief....instead they tried to cram all kinds of shit into a bill that didn't belong there in the first place. The dems should have put the bill out there asking ONLY for funding for hurricane Sanday......everyone would have voted and passed the bill without question. Nice try, asshole.

    It's interesting that the left wing media managed to blame the republican president for the lack of federal response after Katrina when the democrats had the majority in congress and now they blame the republican majority in congress for Sandy when the president is a democrat.

    The difference is timing, i.e. emergency authorization vs. longer-term funding. You're mixing apples and oranges. The rap against Bush was on the first point. Now we're talking about the second.

    The House said it will vote on 9B today and the other 51B on the 15th. You still advocating voting against the bill. Cantor wanted the bill passed if that is good enough for you.

    Um....NO....I'm advocating against blindly fulfilling the liberals agenda and just forking over a huge amount of money for a bill that's stuffed with pork. If the dems want to be taken seriously, then they should have put forth a bill without all the bullshit.....it would have been voted on and passed without question. Go spew your rhetoric somewhere else..

    This is apples to apples......obama "promised" quick action, no red tape, nothing was going to get in the way of people getting what they immediately need, the feds were going to provide all necessary support, etc...and people are STILL going without and it's been months. This IS obama's Katrina....and the fucking idiot liberals are STILL supporting obama's response (or total lack thereof) to the hurricane. Quit making so many stupid excuses for the incompetent fuck we have as a president. How about this.....pretend his name is George W. Bush, and then let's see how much credit you give him about Hurricane Sandy.

    gwennie, the dems won the presidency and increased their majority in the Senate and their minority in the house. You better understand the American people are listening and choosing. We GOP have to do better on these issues.

    Are you more familiar with the bill than Eric Cantor? Why would a Tea Party member support a bill full of pork? Have you read the bill? If not on what information are you basing your opinion?
