Rep. Peter King (R-NY) went off on the Republican Party this morning for not passing legislation last night to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
After the fiscal cliff vote late last night the House was adjourned before a vote was taken on Hurricane Sandy relief – a bill that is loaded with millions of dollars for unrelated pork projects.
Rep. King told New Yorkers to cut off donations to Republicans.
Via America’s Newsroom:
Here’s King’s rant:
“They’re in New York all the time filling their pockets with money from New Yorkers. I’m saying right now, anyone from New York and New Jersey who contributes one penny to Congressional Republicans is out of their mind. Because what they did last night was put a knife in the back of New Yorkers and New Jerseyians. It was an absolute disgrace… And why Republicans have this bias against New York, this bias against New Jersey, this bias against the Northeast. They’re wondering why they’re becoming a minority party? Why they’re going to be a party of the permanent minority? What they did last night was so immoral, so disgraceful, so irresponsible. They’re supposed to be the party of family values? Yet families are starving, are suffering… I’ve had it. As far as I am concerned I’m on my own. They’re going to go a long way to get my vote on anything.“
With Republicans like Peter King, who needs Democrats?
