Sandy Backlash: "Don't Give A Penny To Republicans" Demands House Republican

Tyler Durden's picture




 

We have become used to the whining of Chuck Schumer but when a House Republican blasts his own, it seems the dysfunction runs deep (or the fair did not quite meet the balanced). NY Rep. Peter King lashes out at the pork-laden 'deal' we all just witnessed (and the market cliff-gasm'd over) as the failure to vote on the relief measure for Superstorm Sandy prompted him to exclaim the GOP leadership has "turned its back on those people" who continue to suffer. As CNN reports, King said he was "chasing [Boehner] all over the House," and reminded House Republicans that they seem to "have no problem finding New York when they want money," and the frustrated Congressman added, "I would not give one penny to [The Republicans] based on what they did to us last night." Simply put, King proclaims that a number of Republicans may "kiss their seats goodbye...because if you can't provide the most basic assistance for your district, who needs you in Congress?"

Republicans are now becoming cannibalistic detritivores, eating the rotting carcasses of their own kind as they wallow in their own dung. Hope they choke on it.

Agreed.

Cantor cried and whined for federal disaster relief when his district got hit by a hurricane a few years ago.

When a tornado in Joplin, MO the fucker wanted cuts to offset aid...of course there was no mention of such demands when his district needed aid.

That area of Missouri is conservative and Republican so they got a dose of just how duplicitous their own can be.

Republicans (or at least the neocon subgroup) disemboweled themselves when they ignored the tea-party, Ron Paul, and all of his supporters.

 

The changing of the rules to keep Ron Paul from speaking at the GOP convention will ultimately be their undoing.  It showed the contempt they had for a large portion of their constituents.

 

Obama merely seized on the opportunity presented to him by the crooked GOP leadership.

As an outsider, I am confused by this. Isn't disaster response, along with national defense and enforcing the rule of law, the primary reasons to have a federal government? Shouldn't Republicans be in favor of using national guard units and the army corp of engineers to respond to situations exactly like Superstorm Sandy?

Insurance claims adjusters seem to be hiding under rocks whenever they're required to do their job(s).  How is it that the Federal Govt is harangued into doing their work, again?  By all means, have the Natl Guard pitch in and help clean up the areas, but expecting the Federal Govt to rebuild yer house is asking too much!

This piece of SHIT Criminal King needs to be Musolinied in the worst way.  Hypothetically speaking, hang him upside down and slit his throat.  Have the public watch him drown in his own blood. 

On 29 April 1945, the bodies of Mussolini, Petacci, and the other executed Fascists were loaded into a moving van and trucked south to Milan. There, at 3:00 am, they were dumped on the ground in the old Piazzale Loreto. The piazza had been renamed "Piazza Quindici Martiri" in honor of 15 anti-Fascists recently executed there.[122]

After being shot, kicked, and spat upon, the bodies were hung upside down on meathooks from the roof of an Esso gas station. The bodies were then stoned by civilians from below. This was done both to discourage any Fascists from continuing the fight and as an act of revenge for the hanging of many partisans in the same place by Axis authorities. The corpse of the deposed leader became subject to ridicule and abuse. Fascist loyalist Achille Starace was captured and sentenced to death and then taken to the Piazzale Loreto and shown the body of Mussolini. Starace, who once said of Mussolini "He is a god,"[123] saluted what was left of his leader just before he was shot. The body of Starace was subsequently strung up next to the body of Mussolini.

Even the rotund and supposedly esteemed and distguished "hard-nosed-on-spending-union-busting" Gov Christie is disowning the Repubs for not paying the "Sandy" vig.

And yet many still believe there is a difference between the parties......

Yes lets have the taxpayers bailout another area who is historically 'Crat heavy. Oh joy.. nothing like spending other people's money.

Note to GOP: You guys talk a good game, but you're gutless. Barack and company made you look silly on your talk about cutting spending, etc. After all, the G in GOP now stands for gutless.

Homer, I hope you suffer a crippling natural disaster...or maybe the nuclear power plant in Springfield will melt down.  You can show us how it's done.

Then we'll all watch you pull yourself up by your own bootstraps.  Post us a link to the youtube vid.

In lieu of any kind of aid, assistance etc.. we'll cheer you on.  I'm certain Marge, Bart, Lisa and little Maggie will understand when they are cold and don't have a roof over their heads.

Good luck with that.

I love how the assholes in Washington, on both sides, found time to give money to Disney and Goldman and tax immunity to US Corporations that do business outside the United States........but throughout all of this, never found the time to help out regular folk in New York City.

But the Wall Street Republicans (i.e. Fascists) can, and will, always replace King....which is what they will do (although I'm sure in the end, the Sandy Relieft fund will get passed with enough public pressure).

I really do hope the Anarchist Party rises in my lifetime.  Fuck these fools.

Peter King is and will always be a useless POS. Just like the rest of the downstate politicians.

The King wanted the serfs unarmed around royalty such as himself. I guess he doesn't have numerous armed guards like Bloomturd.

If there was every any doubt about that 49% sound bite that Mitt Romney uttered, here is your proof.  Problem is, Mittens focused only on the individuals on welfare and conveniently left out the corporations on welfare.  In any event, no politician sees any political gain in yelling "Stop the Deficient Spending!"  So, we will inevitably have much more of it until the food does not appear on grocery shelves and the system collapses.
