The Senate Democrats voted it down and used it as leverage against Senate Republicans, the point is again both sides play the same game and partisan hacks only acknowledge that only the other side does it. Democrats and Republicans put party over people all the time. Partisan nuts do the same.
Democrats opposed the bill, arguing that Puerto Rico is still recovering from Hurricane Maria and needs additional federal aid to get back on its feet.

So Republicans voted against aid for Sandy

Refused aid to Puerto Rico

But demanded aid for red state flood problems and for Florida hurricane relief.

Are ya sensing a trend here?

As a freshman congressman in 2013, Ron DeSantis was unambiguous: A federal bailout for the New York region after Hurricane Sandy was an irresponsible boondoggle, a symbol of the “put it on the credit card mentality” he had come to Washington to oppose.

“I sympathize with the victims,” he said. But his answer was no.

Nearly a decade later, as his state confronts the devastation and costly destruction wrought by Hurricane Ian, Mr. DeSantis is appealing to the nation’s better angels — and betting on its short memory.


The present circumstances have inspired a less swaggering posture toward a leader whom Mr. DeSantis has long called “Brandon” as a recurring troll, aimed at the man he might like to succeed. “Dear Mr. President,” the governor’s request for a major disaster declaration and federal assistance began on Wednesday.

“Ironically,” said David Jolly, a former Republican congressman from Florida, “there’s nobody in America that Ron DeSantis needs more than Joe Biden.”

Some Northeastern lawmakers, including Republicans, have not forgotten how Mr. DeSantis and some of his peers responded when the New York area was under duress. “Year after year, we had given them billions of dollars,” said Peter King, a former Republican congressman from Long Island, alluding to aid packages for Southern states and calling the resistance to Sandy relief his angriest moment in office. “Every one of them comes to New York to raise money. They either go to the Hamptons or they go to Manhattan. And both areas were devastated by Sandy.”

The Moron Maggot thinks being a Congressman is the same as being a Governor.

What a clown.

In your mind but not under the law.
Those processed and given an asylum hearing are by definition not illegal.
It has gotten to the point where Asylum Claims mean next-to-nothing anymore.

Damned-near anyone who crosses the border nowadays knows to make the claim, even though a very high percentage are denied.

The claim has been overworked and abused and needs to be "reformed".

Want to claim asylum? Fine. Do it from the Mexican side of the border and wait there until we adjudicate it.

Cross the border without our permission and we're gonna ship your a$$ back across the border again.

Do it a second time and we throw your a$$ in jail.

Do it a third time and we throw your a$$ in jail for a very LONG time... perhaps at hard labor.

The law allows for that as well.

And in instances where it does not at present - or at times such as now when it's not enforced - it soon will be.

With a vengeance.

Enough of this Illegal Alien -loving bull$hit.

I doubt the Thread starter never heard or was explained as to the meaning
of " hindsight being 20/20 " .Well DeSantis operated in foresight mode.
He turned out to be spot-on.His hesitancy was warranted.
Because the Sandy Relief bill was loaded with pork.Very over the top
and rewarding a region based on Political will.New York is run by the
Democrats and has been for years.Starting with Cuomo and going back to
David Patterson { 2008-2010 } while serving out Eliot Spitzer's { 2007-2008 }
where he resigned under a cloud of scandal.
Before Spitzer New York had the Good Governance of George Pataki {1995-2006}
as Governor as well fellow Republican Rudy Giuliani as Mayor of N.Y.city.
So go ahead and make yer case.It's doesn't rise to the level of
" wet behind the ears ".
So Sayeth Me.

Democrat's and Republican's put party over the other sides people or over the opposing sides people all of the time.

There I fixed it for you. :)

And yet, he still won. Twice. Now, who's a retard?
Yeah that fact is still making patriotic American's scratch their head's.

Obama was a jooking jiving bobble head glorified car salesman at best, and that's all he'll ever be. Hopefully people have got that virus detection frozen in their brain's forever when it comes to casting their votes on similar candidates in the future.

Lucky for him though, he's probably actually serving a third term through his puppet Biden. Biden sure ain't running nothing.

Dims call this behavior (yours) "whataboutism."

It was widely reported and made a big deal over for months.
- Sandy Relief Bill Loaded With Pork- { Jan.24,2013 }
Tampa Bay Times
" 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 Customes enforcement,the Secret Service,The Federal
Aviation Administration and the National Oceanic And Atmospheric Adm.
Of the 180 No Votes all but one was Republican.
Only one democrat voted Against.

“I sympathize with the victims of Hurricane Sandy and believe that those who purchased flood insurance should have their claims paid. At the same time, allowing the program to increase its debt by another $9.7 billion with no plan to offset the spending with cuts elsewhere is not fiscally responsible.”


DeSantis didnt want a federal bail out for people who refused to pay insurance?

I AGREE WITH DESANTIS.

Liar. It wasn't the aid to the people in need. It was the political payoff added to the bill for Democrat cronyism.

Unfortunately, you fucking morons don't bother to think for yourselves or question critically anything done by your masters.

Yep. None of these assholes know anything about that bill.

They just slurp up what the thought police tells them.

I agree with DeSantis.
