New Jersey GOP Gov. Chris Christie held a News Conference today and blasted House Speaker John Boehner and the Republican Majority for being the only group to blame for not passing a Hurrican Sandy Aid Package for victims in the storm in New Jersey and New York. Christie did not mince words in his statement, still furious that Boehner would not bring up the Sandy Aid bill for a vote before ending business in the House after passage of the “Fiscal Cliff” Deal.
Christie claims he tried to talk to Boehner four times last night, but had his calls refused. Christie said, “Shame on You!” to Congress for not acting.
Fact: If the House passed the #Sandy bill last night, after cleaning it up, Christie still wouldn’t have his monies. Senate action required.— Ali A. Akbar (@ali) January 2, 2013
