US Rep. Peter King's R-N.Y Hurricane Sandy
Posted in the Brattleboro Forum

House leadership told legislators Tuesday that it would not vote on an aid bill for super-storm Sandy victims in the lame-duck session, following an all-out debate over the fiscal cliff bill.
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told the Associated Press that he was told by the office of Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia that Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, had decided not to bring the bill to the floor. On the House floor, King called the decision “absolutely inexcusable, absolutely indefensible. We cannot just walk away from our responsibilities.”
Last week, the Senate passed a $60.4 billion aid bill that will expire if the House does not vote on it Wednesday. The House Appropriations Committee had already drafted a smaller,$27 billion measure, and a vote had been expected before the end of the Congressional session Thursday.

So why is NY rep King still even a Republican...why doesn't he switch political parties. Why doesn't all the NY and NJ House republicans switch political parties.
You are just not in the exclusive trusted club...that you are a deep southerner. A northern republican is never going to get parity with the southern insiders.

I can't stand just seeing a sliver of a story...it is the context that is important.

So there are two states...one i named New Republicania and the other is New Democania.
New Democrana has a broad tax base and they have adequate money in their coffers. They got a rainy day fund from taxing in the good times. The spent a lot a dough on infrastructure and Global Warming preparations. The state is relatively honest and ethical...everything is done out in open. They got a good economy.
New Republicania is at the opposite end of the scale. The got a very narrow ideological tax base. Government is always poor and insufficient. The good times came, they cut taxes to everyone to get elected and gave huge tax breaks to the wealthy. They have no good times rainy day fond. They been cutting back on government for years and no infrastructure development. The whole state is corrupt as hell and nothing can be trusted with any politicians...the economy sucks. There has been one rendition of government slashing after another in the downturn.
So the same hurricane of the century hits both states. New Democania has marginal damage...they were prepared for the hurricane. New Republicania is devastated by the storm because their government wasn't properly resourced. They didn't make any preparation
You think it is fair to federally bail our New Republicania 10 time more than the well behaved New Democania?

"Obama could refuse to sign the deal until the house and senate pass the Sandy bill.. "
-Soetoro AKA Obama could also be threatened with having his secret lifestyle exposed
and Now we know the real reasons behind the Benghazi Cover-Up, not just the guns & arms running going on at that 'consulate'(which was later admitted to being just a CIA safehouse) but also the fact that Amb Stevens had something in common with President Barry Soetoro-->
The Real powers that be Love us having a prez who is compromised since they can be blackmailed into doing the Illuminati's evil wishes. Remember how JFK was told by Freemason J. Edgar Hoover to accept LBJ as his running mate? JFK said no, so Hoover just showed Jack the pics of the women he was doing on the side and mentioned how they knew of Jack's pain pill abuse. Kennedy could have counter-threatened with "F* you J. Edgar, I'll expose your que erness and your long time partner Clyde and the cross-dressing you've done" but apparently Kennedy didn't dare go there with the FBI head and knew he could have him kilt, as Did happen later in an outdoor temple of Freemasonry called Dealey Plaza on the very same day that the spritual forefathers of the Masons (Knights Templar) were ordered by a Catholic pope to be rounded up and burned at the stake.
JFK even warned about such secret society bastards in a speech he gave!
so did an ex-Mason who was kilt by them for exposing secrets of the order-
and of course everyone konws that the Mormonism was started by a couple Freemasons and the symbol of the Masons is on Mormon underwear-
BHObama PERSONALLY Arranged Benghazi Trip That Resulted In Murder Of US AMB Chris Stevens and others,
Did Obama deliberately try to stage a hostage taking in Benghazi as an “October Surprise” PR stunt that blew up in his face? LISTEN LIVE at 330pm CST to find out!

Boehner was doing what he was supposed to do. If a bill couldn't pass, then he wouldn't bring it up. The House Republicans would have voted it down. Boehner took the sword for the good of the party...got the NE politicians to blame him.
Lets back this up a little, what if the bill was brought up and it didn't pass? It would have been an unrecoverable split in the northeast republicans.
Can you imagine what the NJ and NY republicans would have been saying about that in the media?
Boehner just saved his political party....
