Rep. King calls for donation cut-off to fellow Republicans over stalled Sandy aid bill
A top House Republican lashed out at party leaders Wednesday over a decision to end the session without a vote on aid for Superstorm Sandy victims, going so far as to urge constituents to stop donating to congressional Republicans.
"I'm saying anyone from New York and New Jersey who contributes one penny to congressional Republicans is out of their minds," Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told Fox News. "What they did last night was put a knife in the back of New Yorkers and New Jerseyans."
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo also decried the "failure" to act, saying in a statement: "When American citizens are in need we come to their aid. That tradition was abandoned in the House last night."
Meanwhile, King called the decision a "disgrace" and "immoral" -- and accused fellow Republicans of turning away from Christie. "What did they do? They knifed him in the back," he said.
A procession of lawmakers took to the House floor Wednesday to urge action on the bill, and decry the decision to postpone it.
"We cannot and we should not wait," House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer said. "We must not walk away. I urge the speaker of this House to reconsider and act immediately. Now is the time to act."
New York Republican Rep. Michael Grimm called the move a "betrayal," while New York Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler said it was the "most disgraceful action I've seen in this House in the 20 years I've been here."
