Sometimes I wonder if Congress is trying to determine whether or not they can get their approval ratings into the negative range. They seem to be trying very hard ...

Chris Christie and Peter King are both publicly excoriating the House leadership right now for adjorning without bothering to send aid to those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

LIVE: Chris Christie Attacks John Boehner By Name Over Sandy Aid -- 'Shame On You, Shame On Congress'

Quote:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie just ripped into House Republicans and House Speaker John Boehner for failing to act on a Hurricane Sandy relief bill.

"There is only one group to blame," Christie said. "The House Majority and John Boehner."

"Last night, the House Majority failed most the basic test of leadership and they did so with callous disregard to the people of my state," he said. "It was disappointing and disgusting to watch."

"Shame on you, shame on Congress."

Asked who he thought was responsible on the holdup over Sandy aid, Christie did not mince words in laying the blame entirely on House Speaker Boehner.

"It was the Speaker's decision — his alone," Christie said, adding that he was given no explanation for the decision to pull the Sandy bill. He said that Boehner did not take his calls last night, but that they spoke tonight.

"This is why the American people hate Congress," he said, getting heated. "There is no reason to believe anything they tell me."

Christie's comments come as outrage grows over the House's decision to end the 112th Congress without passing a deal. New York Republican lawmakers have spent the past 24 hours railing against their own party's leadership.

According to a senior White House official, Christie spoke to President Barack Obama about the hold-up earlier today. The official said that Obama has also been in close contact with staff of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The Sandy bill was filled with pork for people in other states. If the bill is intended for victims of the storm Sandy, then the bill should only contain aid for those victims.

The House of Representatives did the right thing by waiting to vote on this bill until ALL pork is removed.

Sandy victims need aid, but Alaska, Virginia, DC, does not.

Read about all the pork here:

Does anyone have a reference to the actual bill? I'd like to read the original bill by itself.
