Speaker Boehner promised Wednesday to pass emergency spending bill to help pay for damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. The House bill will not include the millions of dollars in pork that were included in the Senate bill.

Earlier in the day Governor Chris Christie lashed out at Boehner for not holding a vote on the pork-laden senate bill.

The Hill reported:

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), under fire from Northeast lawmakers in his own party, is promising to pass an emergency spending bill to help pay for damage from Hurricane Sandy in the next Congress, which starts Thursday.

“The Speaker is committed to getting this bill passed this month,” Boehner spokesman Kevin Smith said Wednesday.

Boehner scrapped plans to bring a $27 billion Sandy relief package, without spending-cut offsets, to the floor late Tuesday night. The move means that the Senate’s $60.4 billion Sandy bill will die, and the notoriously slow body will have to start from scratch on a new bill.

Lawmakers from New York and New Jersey reacted with fury to the decision. Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said the Speaker had shown a “dismissive attitude” to Sandy’s victims. Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D.N.Y.) called it a “disgrace.”

  1. Hey Christie, maybe if your new found friends on the Left had not loaded up the Sandy Bill with pork for their friends, you would have gotten the aid your people deserve. I for one, have no desire to line the pockets of some hill critter with money meant for the people who have been dealt so much tragedy. Or have they not been screwed enough already?

  2. Keep talking Chris, and hope you like being governor of New Jersey. Because you will never win national office.

  3. Does this idiot not understand that you just don’t pick a dollar amount, ram the bill through Congress, and then have King George, I mean Obama, sign it?

    Christie is showing he’s another Big Government RINO that thinks ramming a bill through with no examination of it is the way to Govern.

    Hey Christie, the Union Thug IBEW chased away non Union Power Crews that came in from other states to help out, and you said nothing.

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/11/non-union-alabama-utility-workers-denied-entry-into-new-jersey-told-to-stand-down-video/

    When are you going to denounce the IBEW Mafia tactics towards other Americans?

  4. Is there something wrong with just putting forth a bill for the recovery and not everything else the government jerks want to throw money at? Cut the fat or don’t pass it at all.

  5. This is completely dumb. Reid & McConnell created this piece of crap legislation. At 2 a.m. on 1/1/13 it was passed by the Senate. Now, dumb a-s-s Crispy Creme Christie wants to blame Bohener (who did not create this piece of crap) for not giving Sandy aid.

    Is it me or is fat a-s-s Christie part of the “gimmie, gimmie entitlement generation.” How about NJ partner with the private sector to give tax benefits for them to rebuild and give folks jobs in your home state? Why are you running to the broke federal govt for aid?

    Jesus!

  6. Chris Christie’s HUG of Obama gets him a KISS ME FAT BOY….> http://youtu.be/bOUMIXbTM5U

    The 10 minute loop version…> http://youtu.be/gQoE2wU2zLM

  7. You know, I’m about tired of paying for everybody else’s ‘disasters’ in the first place.

    Get insurance, or make your state pay for it.

    Stop demanding I pay for the choices you made on where you live.

  8. Christie was just upset with Boehner for holding up the bill because he thought all the pork in the bill was McRib Sandwiches. Christie has lost all credibility after fellating Obama right before the election. Go Fuk yourself and your sewer of a state you fat slob.

  9. 60 billion dollars is one hell of a BIG money. Time to make the shore a federal land and let ALL taxpayers enjoy the beach. No more taxpayers’ money for the uber-rich of NJ.

  10. Earlier in the day Governor Chris Christie lashed out at Boehner for not holding a vote on the pork-laden senate bill.

    This is Exhibit A in the don’t-even-think-about-running-Christie-in-2016 effort.

  11. Boehner broke the Hastert Rule yesterday and also broke the House pledge that citizens have three days to review, read and weigh in. He did all this in order to give Barack Obama a bill to sign maybe in the next few days (no rush for Barry as he was eager to get back to golfing in Hawaii).

    Tonight we learn that Boehner is willing to embrace progressive bipartisanship by allowing illegal amnesty and gun control to also be voted on in violation of the Hastert Rule. It all sets up for the annihilation of Republicans in 2014 (which RINOs apparently believe they will withstand from promises from the Left to not campaign hard against them and only run weak candidates) while both the RNC and the Left conducts Tea Party cleansing.

    The war is on the Middle Class; we just need to know it has been enjoined by both political parties.

  12. Hey Christie, you fat disgusting slob, I used to live in NJ so maybe you’ll understand this…F#ck you!

  13. Christie should ask his buddy O cut a billion from his family’s personal entertainment and vacations and goft trips to help his voters……

  14. When the floods hit Nashville,the people got to work and rebuilt. Didn’t bitch and moan.

  15. Two Nanny States – New Jersey and New York Beg Fed For (Sandy) Bailout – Question: Since When Should Feds Mitigate Risk?
    Posted on January 2, 2013 by sundance

    updateI am tempted, VERY tempted, to take a trip down to DC and challenge New Jersey, New York Republicans on this issue on camera….. weighing logistics and timing, but the vote is Friday…..

    Chris Christie is not, repeat NOT, a conservative – He is a progressive. He just wailed, screamed, protested, begged, belittled and held out his tin cup on TV for federal money to bail out New Jersey from Hurricane Sandy. He continually used the term New Jersey “innocent victims”… well, exactly what other kind of victim is there?

    You.Must.Watch.This.Video….. Please.

    First, there is a big difference between feeling empathy and sympathy for those in the affected areas, and seeing lives impacted by the overwhelming force of mother nature. I feel sorry for them to have felt the brunt of such a storm, and now for so many to have to rebuild their lives. But to watch people begging the federal government to “make them whole” is the ultimate in-your-face nanny statist expectation.

    Since when does the federal government have a role in mitigating risk and underwriting personal decisions?

  16. And where is all the money Celebrities supposedly raise for Sandy victims.

  17. Chris Christie is not, repeat NOT, a conservative – He is a progressive. He just wailed, screamed, protested, begged, belittled and held out his tin cup on TV for federal money to bail out New Jersey from Hurricane Sandy. He continually used the term New Jersey “innocent victims”… well, exactly what other kind of victim is there?
