Chris Christie lashes out at GOP House, Boehner

For those unable to watch the video above, here’s a partial transcript of the scathing remarks made this afternoon by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, in which he lambasted fellow Republicans in the U.S. House for their refusal to act on an emergency-relief bill for his state and others devastated by Hurricane Sandy back in October:

—————

“Thirty-one days for Andrew victims. Seventeen days for victims of Gustav and Ike. Ten days for victim of Katrina. For the victims of Sandy in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, it has been 66 days, and the wait continues. There is only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims: the House majority and their speaker, John Boehner.

“… National disasters happen in red states and blue states and states with Democratic governors and Republican governors. We respond to national disasters not as Republicans or Democrats, but as Americans. Or at least we did, until last night. Last night, politics was placed before oaths to serve our citizens. For me, it was disappointing and disgusting to watch….”

“I’ve always put the people of New Jersey and my oath ahead of personal, petty politics. Last night, the House of Representatives failed that most basic test of public service, and they did so with callous indifference to the suffering of the people of my state.

“On the equities, this should be a no-brainer for the House Republicans as well. Both New York and New Jersey used the international firm of McKinsey and Co. to assess and quantify the damage to our states. Our professional staffs have spent countless hours with congressional staff providing leadership and back-up documentation for all the damage claims. Gov. Cuomo and I have spent hours and hours speaking to individual members of the House and Senate to answer their questions. We worked with President Obama and his administration and satisfied them of the urgent need of this $60 billion aid package.

“This was good enough for 62 United States senators of both parties to vote for this package. This was good enough for a majority of the House of Representatives. It overcame all the factual challenges. It just could not overcome the toxic internal politics of the House majority.

“Finally, New York and New Jersey are perennially among the most generous states in the nation to our fellow states. We vote for disaster relief for other states in need. We are donor states, sending much more to Washington, DC than we ever get back in federal spending. Despite this history of unbridled generosity, in our hour of desperate need we’ve been left waiting for help six times longer than the victims of Katrina, with no end in sight.

“Americans are tired of the palace intrigue and political partisanship of this Congress, which places one-upsmanship ahead of the lives of the citizens who sent these people to Washington, DC, in the first place. New Jerseyans and New Yorkers are tired of being treated like second-class citizens. New York deserves better than the selfishness we saw on display last night. New Jersey deserves better than the duplicity we saw on display last night. America deserves better than just another example of a government that has forgotten who they are there to serve, and why.

Sixty-six days and counting. Shame on you. Shame on Congress.”

Christie’s anger is perfectly justified, for all the reasons that he laid out and more. But as he suggested in his comments, this is merely the latest egregious example of the ideological preening and misplaced priorities exhibited by those in control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Shame on the Senate for filling the bill full of pork

“Although the bill’s supposed intent is to provide emergency assistance, the Congressional Budget Office contests that only one-third of the money would be spent over the next 21 months — in turn lessening the emphasis on emergency relief.”

Christie can kiss any chance of him advancing in the party good-bye. He played to the hysteria instead of calming the waters and in doing so threw the party under the bus.

The reason the House did not take up the bill is, it is loaded with pork other than disaster money for the North East. For example, it has millions in it for the EPA.

The House had they taken up the bill would have modified it. It would have been sent back to the Senate. The Senate went home after approving the cliff bill. Therefore, taking up the bill in the House was useless. It will be taken up soon, revised and sent back to the Senate. It will be approved, the North East will get the money.

Once again the Democrats along with the sickening liberal legacy media makes the Republicans look like fools over something that is not true.

Kam — PROBABLY is Drudgery spam (I’m saying this because the posting of her “mugshot” is shaky; as well as researching all known links — every link comes back to a FoxNews type source. Also, her “mugshot” is significantly different from all the other mugshots at MUGSHOTS.COM. AND I tried to find her booking number in the Louisville Police database but couldn’t. IOW, this could be another “set up”).

TRACY BROWNING

Tracy Browning was arrested by police in Louisville, Kentucky and charged with robbery, shoplifting, and trespassing in connection with her iPad heists at two local Walmart stores. According to news reports, Browning attempted to purchase several iPads at a Walmart with her food stamp card. When the transaction inevitably was denied, she assaulted the clerk and shoved another employee to the ground as she fled the store with the purloined iPads. Apparently marveling at how well things had gone at the first Walmart store, she visited a second Walmart and again attempted to purchase several iPads with her food stamp card. Of course, the transaction was once again denied, so Browning reportedly employed her familiar modus operandi scooping up the iPads and attempting to rumble out the door to freedom several iPads richer. However, she was apprehended at the scene and place under arrest.

The following Official Record of TRACY BROWNING is being redistributed by Mugshots.com and is protected by constitutional, publishing, and other legal rights. This Official Record was collected on 1/02/2013.

No, JohnnyReb, that is NOT the reason the House did not take up the measure.

The House refused to allow a vote because a large portion of the GOP caucus believes that all such money must be offset with cuts elsewhere in the budget. It is an ideological position and has little or nothing to do with alleged pork in the bill.

In the GOP presidential primary debates, you may recall, Mitt Romney came out against such disaster-relief efforts on the grounds they are unaffordable. (http://blogs.ajc.com/jay-bookman-blog/2011/06/15/romney-we-cannot-afford-disaster-relief/ )

Congressional Republicans also balked at passing relief efforts for Hurricane Irene and for the outbreak of tornadoes that struck Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia: ( http://blogs.ajc.com/jay-bookman-blog/2011/09/01/isakson-chambliss-silent-on-budget-cuts-as-condition-for-disaster-aid/ )

Boehner feared that if he allowed a vote on spending another $60 billion on disaster relief, his already angry caucus would erupt into full-scale rebellion. It was pure politics and pure ideology, and alleged pork had nothing to do with it.
