Republicans Denounced for Spiking Hurricane Relief

The Hill: "New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a joint statement saying it was 'inexcusable' that the House wasn't voting on a bill. The Senate has already approved a bill providing the states hit by Sandy with $60.4 billion. Just before noon, the White House weighed in with a statement from President Obama... In response to the pressure, Boehner will meet Wednesday afternoon with GOP lawmakers from the effected states."

Said Obama: "When tragedy strikes, Americans come together to support those in need. I urge Republicans in the House of Representatives to do the same, bring this important request to a vote today, and pass it without delay for our fellow Americans."
