It will be the new US Congress with new elected Reps that will be sworn today. Governor Christie proved to be Big Liberal who will not wait much to use the liberal media to go after the GOP as party of losers and to besmirch the leader of the GOP party Speaker Boehner when it about getting lots of money from Obama when Obama willing to flow lots of money to the liberal NY-NY-CT liberals. GOP Rep. Issa noted that the NJ-NY requested money for much more pork together with the real expenses which proved typical to liberal states that take advantage of the Sandy crisis to fix others things. GOP became the party that will not allow the free flow of trillions to the poor of America which became the parasitic liberal vote that keeps Obama in power. Will GOP stand up to Obama 7 trillion over spending during the coming four years that will make the total deficit of Obama’s regime to 23 trillion dollars and need to be borrowed from foreign regimes or printed from air?

The criticism of the 'after Sandy pile on' is justified. The business of Congress as it is to Exploit any crisis, and grab as much as you can for your district.
The programs and lawyers that want to continue the 'ChicagoWay' need an escort to the door.

Not one penny should go to the uber wealthy who built their trophy homes in the paths of hurricanes. In some cases these entitled asshats have tried to deny beach access to the public! Let them pay for their own repairs!

If you are referring to the citizens whose lives were torn apart by Sandy, then you are a heartless, gutless rattlesnake. By the way, screw you, creep!

Very uninformed comment, there, Bub.
Sure, some of those homes were 2nd homes, vacation homes. But, nobody is asking for these to be repaired with tax-payer funds.

The funds are for those who lost everything they had in the storm. They lost their homes and everything in them.
They lost their vehicles.
Some even lost family members.

They all pay taxes and supported the rest of their countrymen in their time of need. Some even took time off to go help those who were devastated by Katrina. Nobody complained about repairing N.O after Katrina, except to say that relief was too slow in coming. You were among those complainers, too, I'll bet.

In your mind, these NY/NJ folks chose to live in the path of a hurricane, as if that path was knowable when they bought/built the homes. You deny them any sympathy, but extend it to those who chose to live below sea level.

You should be ashamed.

I don't believe the people who post such garbage are capable of any
humanity at all unless, of course, the disasters would effect their lives.

Nobody helps us in hard times. Move away from the ocean you creep. Why should we pay for your stupid living arrangements? It did not take two months to build your house, or close on your house and it can't be fixed in two months. Take your savings and salary and fix it yourself. Get a job, quit smoking, drinking and get to work. People would help you, but you decided to elect an idiot for president, so call him, your savior in chief.

You are
an especially repulsive goon, aren't you? I certainly did not lose my home to the super storm but do not make a joke out of the misfortune it caused others. As I wrote before, you are a creep... a lowly, manure-covered creep.
