Republican Rep. Peter King Goes Off – Halt Donations to GOP! (Video)

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?

    I can understand Peter King being torqued. But why the wholesale attack on the GOP? Why not focus his ire on the proper target–Speaker Boner? Where are Pete King’s balls? Why not call out who screwed NY-NJ–Speaker Boner?

    By the way, the $60 billion bailout is a porkfest and should be cut down to $21 billion.

  • Kissmygrits

    Pray tell, Rep. King, who put all the additional pork in that bill and which states will benefit the most? Don’t just tar the repubs in general, isolate the target before pulling the verbal trigger. With all the taxes the state of NY collects, why doesn’t the state take care of their people itself? We do not owe the residents of a certain neighborhood help. I’m sure they don’t feel like helping others who suffer natural or man caused disasters.

    Peter King is just another bloodsucking GOP leech trying to get his taste of the government money. Think about this for a second. We are spending our country into oblivion and this slime ball is outraged that his pork filled, slush fund of a bill isn’t getting passed in a timely manner. There’s a special place in hell for people like him. It’s no longer about we the people. It’s about how much taxpayer cash these politician thieves can steal before the bubble bursts. There’s no party system. No ideology. Just hogs at the trough. While we work our fingers to the bone watching prices skyrocket and country die. WE have no representation. Only taxation. We live in a tyranny.

  • What the heck..I thought King was smarter than this. What part of pork do you not get. Typical politician

  • cavt

    Why is it impossible for Congress to put a basic bill together that deals with one subject without having all sorts of other stuff(always spending) attached to it. What a stupid way to do business(or governing if you prefer.)

  • gonedaddygone

    “Yet families are starving” hyperbole, maybe?

  • donh

    Its called outsourcing….Maybe some monied New Yorkers would rather give to out of town conservatives who do a better job of representing our values. I am a Republican living in the North East…When has any Republican from the north east HELPED the conservative cause of cutting government and stop trading freedom for fascism ? I see every reason for a regional bias…..SCREW the hand outs…Rebuild your own damn homes from local taxes. Buy insurance ! King of Queens has become an all too common Republican…squeeling like a stuck pig when money we don’t have IS NOT SPENT…not a sound when money is wasted. We would have more money to help if the Arlan Specters and Olympia Snows and Scott Browns of the North East were not always giving their Democrat buddies 90% of everything they want and stiffing conservatives 100% of that we want.

  • ★FALCON★

    It should not be the responsibility of the FEDS to bail out every natural disaster. It places the burden on Americans that are in no way responsible. I feel compassion, however, it’s a State issue.

    Surely with the extreme taxation in New York you have a rainy day fund. Whoops.

  • Ella

    Cut off all donations to any organization except Wounded Warriors and other worthwhile conservative charities. In a proper socialist society where money is handed out left and right to victims, moochers and takers, no-one donates to charities. That is now the Government’s job.

  • Freddy

    There were several Republicans that are pretending that more cash will fix the red tape disaster that big government brings. It is very surprising that when FEMA says they cannot even spend the money they already have for several more months, to hear this kind of noise.

    Look for the next legislation to eliminate the red tape and just give away billions without any accounting.

  • Ray

    They may have to wait a day or two. Who gives a rats ass. I already stopped giving to the GOP,7 years ago. Not giving money to the NE actually tempts me to give them some.

  • Finncrisp

    Rep. King is already in the running for “tool of 2013”. What was he thinking?

  • Marge Homer

    Tell Peter King to stuff it. I am sure he will be on Religion on the Line on Sunday with the two phonies: the rabbi and the Deacon- decrying this without mentioning all the PRIVATE DONATIONS that have gone to Sandy’s victims.

    Two years ago my daughter lost her house in a mud/rock slide. She got NO help from the government. No one gave a damn because only four houses were lost.

    I told her at the time, that if you are going to be part of a disaster, be sure it is a politically significant one.

    Tell those people to call their insurance companies. They do have insurance, don’t they? If not, then they are in the same boat my daughter was in. OOOPS! No they aren’t; they are politically significant. The government will bail them out. You and I will bail them out.

    They’re a bunch of crack whores. Funny how liberals tend to worry about natural disasters in such a fanatical way as to hamstring economies to hedge against “the big one.” Then, when a big one happens they’re woefully unprepared with a lack of resources.

    They waste tax money by lying about what they’re going to fix just to get elected and then have to beg for money to actually fix those things when they do happen.

    It tells me liberals don’t believe their own words when it comes to assessing potential disasters to be mitigated. The future of mankind would surely be back to subsistence level living if left to the liberals. Just take a look back at where the occupy “movement” started and how quickly it fell into death and disease.

    Liberalism is a low level psychosis which retains an adolescent mental trait attached to a vague imagination. It’s sometimes referred to as being a few bricks short of a load.

    Peter King is infected.

  • Knox

    NY pays much more into the Federal coffers than they get back. They ought to secede.


    What happened to all the “millions” the rock stars supposedly earned for their concerts for Sandy?? There were all kinds of fundraising deals going on for Sandy, too….what happened to that money???? Was it all for show???

  • Tom Doniphon

    This is a repeat of the Zadroga fiasco a couple of years ago! Health care benefits for 9/11 responders must be paid by the government and must be unlimited and must include PORK!

    Look for Jon Stewart to make an emotional plea. Mourning Joe will condemn and Mika will cock her head to one side and then the other! CornPone Governor Huckleberry will condemn and NY will get $80B!

    We are doomed, the question is just how long do we have!

  • rrpjr

    While King’s rage is large part parochial and political, his point is correct. The GOP is screaming toward minority status and probable oblivion. I’m disgusted, and am not giving them another dime. The only hope is an internal revolution.

  • Big Al

    Why is it that Katrina was all Bush’s fault and now this is all the republicans in congress fault? AAAAAARG!!!!!!


    Peter King has done a good job of showing me why I should no longer vote or donate GOP.

  • Ray

    F!!ck New York,New Jersey and the whole NE.

  • Tiger Eyes

    Who in their Right Mind (Pun Intended) would give money to the GOP only to watch them ignore our outrage and continue to give us the finger while enabling the theft of the American People?
    How many Americans are out of work, Mr. King? How many Americans are only able to get part time work, Mr. King. How many are on Unemployment Benefits, Mr. King? Do you really think any of them have money to give to the “Cowards” at the GOP?
    I hope any donation made will go toward removing all Current Republicans from office and replacing them with dead serious conservatives!

  • King is Weiner with his pants on but hands out. Hey if tax dollars can be had for the sucks in NY it’s perfectly Ok but screw everyone else.

  • Ray

    King is buddies with leaders of the Irish Republican Party. Enough said.

  • luckyone

    Why is the Federal Government responsible for damage in a State? Why do I in Texas have to pay for this? Why doesn’t the Federal Government leave the money in the States and with the people so they can pay for it themselves? Peter King may be good on National Security but he is really very liberal. I don’t trust him.

  • bobbu

    Hmmmm.the Democrats wrote the bill, Mr. King. DUH

  • bigL

    No, No, these folks have to buy insurance and make a claim. there is no reliance on a public progam for these folks who are viewed as rich by the rest of the country. Buy insurance.You might have to give up you new car for a long time. but I bet if there are a whole group of you, a whole community, then you might get a better deal.
    many of us pay thousands for insurance every year. We can’t have the new SUV. We drive 9 yr old car.But we are covered, we get coverage that gives us living quarters.
    But How is that Hug and Hope working for Krispy Kreme Chrtistie

  • mamagriz1968

    Where is the anger at the Dems who larded up the bill with things that have nothing to do with helping people who suffered damage/loss due to the hurricane? It’s just like this fiscal cliff debacle giving Hollywood more tax breaks, tax deals for NASCAR and wind energy. Maybe bills should only contain things that relate to the topic at hand?

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    That would only come about if the media does its job, but since the media is nothing more than the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party, well,…

  • BlueStateRepub

    I can understand the corrupt, treasonous, Fifth Columnists in the MSM refusing to acknowledge that the bill was porked up with stuff like free crap for Alaskan fisheries (which has nothing to do with Hurricane Sandy) but a sitting Congresscreep?

    Doesn’t Peter King understand that this bill is probably full of some much pork, it would make the so called Stimulus Package look like a pocket full of money.

    so much pork*

    What exactly can the federal government do that the state government can not except take money from people in other states to spend on New Yorkers? With all the millionaires and billionaires in that state, why can they not handle it them selves? In the past King has often been a voice of reason but maybe he has been in congress too long.

    I have a question. Why aren’t King and Christie being team players? Why are they going to the press and trashing the GOP? Aren’t the conservatives always scolded for failing to play team ball? Will Rep. King be thrown off any committees? Heck, if Rep. King was a conservative, they would have already held a censure vote.

    Why hasn’t Speaker Boner told Rep. King to just, “get his ass in line”?

    Obama Vows More Tax Increases

    President Obama this morning pocketed the Republican concessions on tax hikes included in the Fiscal Cliff deal and promised that it was only the beginning of new taxation to be assessed on the American people.

    Obama, who appeared in the White House briefing room Tuesday night to hail the deal, made clear to Republicans that he will continue to seek a “balanced” approach to deficit reduction – White House code for “balancing” spending cuts with raising taxes. Meanwhile, spending on Obama-blessed programs will continue to rise, he asserted:

    We can’t simply cut our way to prosperity. Cutting spending has to go hand-in-hand with further reforms to our tax code so that the wealthiest corporations and individuals can’t take advantage of loopholes and deductions that aren’t available to most Americans. And we can’t keep cutting things like basic research and new technology and still expect to succeed in a 21st century economy. So we’re going to have to continue to move forward in deficit reduction, but we have to do it in a balanced way, making sure that we are growing even as we get a handle on our spending . . .

    Today’s agreement enshrines, I think, a principle into law that will remain in place as long as I am President: The deficit needs to be reduced in a way that’s balanced. Everyone pays their fair share. Everyone does their part. That’s how our economy works best. That’s how we grow.

    While the Fiscal Cliff’s automatic deficit reduction included both tax increases and spending cuts, the deal passed by Congress Tuesday night relied almost exclusively on tax increases to pare down the deficit. The massive Fiscal Cliff spending cuts that had been scheduled to take effect at the beginning of the year are still on tap, but have been delayed for two months.

    But if Republicans thought that out of fairness and “balance” the focus would now be on trimming spending, Obama’s comments made clear that they are deluding themselves.

    Having been rolled by Obama into accepting a massive tax increase, Republicans will again be pressured into embracing a “balanced” approach that cuts spending but also socks the “wealthy” for more revenues.

  • bigL

    REp King was a big supporter of Muslims recently wasn’t he?

  • Rob W

    Peter King is my congressman, i voted for him, I’ve even been within a few feet of him earlier this year at a dinner where he was the speaker, heck i voted for Romney I’ll admit it. He’s right. I think i’m done with the GOP at the national level. The local GOP party is great, i’ve got nothing against any of the town or county or state republicans, but this nightmare that we call congress has to be replaced.

    Thank you Peter King for validating my vote for you this year. If you switch parties (be it democratic or independent), my vote will follow.

  • Sparky

    New Jersey and New York vote Democrat. Christie turned into an Obama-lover at a crucial moment in the election. I think the GOP just gave them all the middle finger.

    As for hurricane relief, the blame should be placed on Obama, as this falls under his direct responsibility. If Obama can use the Sandy victims for photo ops, then he can be responsible for their aid.

  • Orwellian States

    Don’t worry Pete. I gave Romney $250.00. That is the last dollar they will see from me. This “conservative” party is useless. Time to look elsewhere. God grant us a strong conservative 3rd party, but it isn’t likely to happen. I will NOT support another Republican.

  • Restless

    I just heard a completely biased CBS Radio news story on this topic. It included two bites from Chris Christie and his “outrage” at Boehner over this bill. The story gave no information about the pork in this bill. It didn’t even attempt to give the other side of the story.

    I was the victim of TWO very serious floods in upstate NY. One in 2006 and one in 2011. In 2006, the Red Cross came around and offered me a bucket, mop, and broom. THAT’S IT. My village offered me bottled water. FEMA came around in 2006 and gave help ONLY to the very poor. They offered me a buy out which I accepted. Two years later, the FEMA money for the buy out came in but the town took the money and used it all up! No buy out for me! Then, the flood of 2011 came and was worse than the first…NO FEMA AT ALL. NO AMERICAN CROSS AT ALL. NADA.
    There are only two kinds of government agencies: Those that take all the money and don’t give a crap about the American people and….the military.

    GET YOUR HEADS OUT OF THOSE TIGHT DARK PLACES FOLKS! WE DON’T NEED OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!! This is why they cut their heads off during the French Revolution!

  • nobama

    I already quit giving to the GOP. Only candidates of my choice get my money now. Rep King needs to remember that bill is full of pork. We cannot afford giving that kind of money out. I’m all for helping, but not a complete bailout, and not giving money to Alaska in a Sandy Hurricane bill.

    Amendment Cuts Pork from Hurricane Sandy Relief Bill

    An example of fiscal responsibility turned up yesterday in an unexpected place: the U.S. Senate. Senator Dan Coats (R–IN) offered an amendment to President Obama’s $60.4 billion Hurricane Sandy relief bill that would be far less costly and much better focused on the storm’s victims.

    Maybe common sense in budgeting still has a pulse.

    Senator Coats noted that about two-thirds of Obama’s proposal, as packaged by the Appropriations Committee, is extraneous to the immediate needs of hurricane victims. The Senator’s $23.8 billion measure would strip out $13 billion in funding to mitigate the next potential storm, and also strikes all but $2 billion of an outrageous $17 billion Community Development Block Grant slush fund.

    The amendment also eliminates funding for fisheries in Alaska, museum roof repairs in Washington, D.C., tree planting, and other non-Sandy “investments” in the Obama bill. These items can be considered in the regular budget process. That assumes, of course, that the Senate—which has not passed a budget resolution in more than three-and-a-half years—can remember how the “regular budget process” works.

    The Obama bill is excessive in many ways. What is equally frustrating is how it employs the all-too-typical practice of disregarding budget discipline. The President and his Senate allies are exploiting the “disaster” and “emergency” loopholes they placed in the Budget Control Act (BCA) to slide their deficit-increasing bill through.

    The timing is curious, too. Sandy struck in late October; the President’s request came on December 7, more than a month later. The “emergency” designation is supposed to be for urgently needed assistance. (Remember New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s early November pleas to the President?) With the year quickly drawing to a close, and the fiscal cliff still unresolved, rushing the Sandy relief bill now only ensures inadequate deliberation.

    It is regrettable that even Senator Coats does not offset his $23.8 billion with reductions elsewhere. The federal government is still drowning in trillion-dollar deficits, and every dollar spent adds to the government’s growing debt. Nevertheless, his attempt to trim down Obama’s extravagant request points in a sensible direction—a refreshing change from the flagrant spend-as-you-go practices that have flourished in Washington for far too long.

    who or what to believe?? as it’s patently obvious we can’t get the
    straight honest to goodness TRUTH from anyone these days.. 🙁


  • JoyO

    Obama told the New Yorkers and New Jersey folks he was going to look out for them. Instead, he lets his minion Harry Reid draft a bill with tons of port in it that relate in no way to NJ and NY. I agree with King that the House should have helped out BUT — BY CUTTING ALL OF THE EXCESS PORK THAT DIDN’T RELATE TO NY OR NJ IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER OUT and sending the bill back to the Senate.

  • donh

    BAIL OUTS are for retired auto worker $100,000 pensions, Wall Street insurance underwriters, Junk Mortgage paper pushers, Trillion dollar banks, TARP stock brokerages, places like Greece, Spain, Pakistan…No bail outs for little people.

    See if everyone receiving a Social Security check will agree give up one month’s check payable toward storm victims…. then you can give away Sandy Candy…….Shared suffering…Isn’t that Obamunism ?

    I stopped giving money and votes to the GOP years ago when they nominated John McCain…

    The RINO’s just don’t get it, Paul Ryan or Jeb Bush will be the next RINO they trot out with the same results as the last election.

    As for me, I refuse to hold my nose and vote for RINO’s again after McCain…. The GOP establishment is just as bad, if not worse than the democraps.

    There is only one person that I will give money and support to and that is Rand Paul.

But then who the hell cares when you are spending other peoples money, just give me my share. Insurance companies figured the damage at $20 Billion, this bill calls for $60 Billion, where does the $40 billion over go to. Now you know who people like King are in government, no other business in the world could afford to lose the money these guys do.
