Once upon a time (2013 to be exact), a nasty little first-term Congressman named Ronald DeSantis decided he wanted to make a big, big statement in order to ingratiate himself with a group of fellow conservatives that called themselves the “Tea Party.“ In a gesture that foreshadowed what would later become his trademark “LOL, let’s own the Libs” strategy, and timely occurring the day after he was sworn into office, DeSantis voted to deny billions in relief to New York and New Jersey residents whose lives had been ravaged by one of this nation’s most destructive national disasters, the “Superstorm” known as Hurricane Sandy.

As reported at the time by Steve Contorno, writing for the Tampa Bay Times:


That will make for an awkward moment in a Presidential debate won't it?

Ted Cruz did the same thing

Same rationale……when it is for them, it is PORK
When it is for me, it is vital needed support

I remember the Hurricane Sandy relief bill.
The Greedy Corrupt Democrats loaded the the relief bill with unrelated $billion$ in kick-back pork.
It pissed off a lot of people.
They had to redo the bill and clean up their kick-back pork.
The Democrats such crooked scum that they exploit tragedies to line their pockets.

Republicans held the House which is where bills like this originate.

This is a common Leftist tactic, becoming almost standard in this age of Pelosi. They see a perceived need, and create a name for a piece of legislation. Let's call it the "Don't let Grandma Starve!" bill.

Then they load it up with hundreds of billions of Democrat wet dreams and DARE the Republicans to vote against it, so they and their Fellow Travelers at the NYT, WaPO, etc, can excoriate those Republicans for voting to let Grandma starve.

Who says they don't cater to the 2-digit IQ crowd?

Time proved him correct.....There was so much fraud going on it caused major shifts in how insurance companies provided coverage......Can't get or afford full coverage for you waterfront home.....Blame NY.

The wife worked for FEMA at the time and she said the fraud outpaced Katrina.....And that's saying something.

Goddamn you're dumb.

The White House was quick to deliver aid, as Democrats always do in times of tragedy. Republicans are quick to help red states, but will deny aid to blue states. Republicans suck ass.

No problem!

Since illegal aliens are very important to the economy, DeSantis will help New York and New Jersey by sending them plenty.

Watching shitlibs squirm and squeal like trannies on the end of DeSantis' dick is one of life's small pleasures. Like petting a puppy or watching a tee-ball game.

Thank you substandard units.

And the bill was written by a democrat, as I already proved. FULL of tons of pork.

You're just lying to cover for your filthy party - as always.

... The baseline relief in the bill is $17 billion, on top of the $9.7 billion already passed by the House on Jan. 4
More than $33 billion of the bill is nothing but pure pork. And of course there is no offset reduction in spending elsewhere to cover the cost of this bill. The bill allocates billions to dozens of federal agencies, including the National Park Service, the Smithsonian, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Secret Service, the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Of the 180 "no'' votes, 179 were Republican, including Rep. Nugent. Only one Democrat voted against it. ...
