House Adjourns Without Taking Up Hurricane Sandy Relief Bill http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/house-adjourns-without-taking-up-hurricane-sandy-relief Ö via @TPM_dk


Roll Call ‏@rollcall

NY/NJ lawmakers, plus @NancyPelosi, on floor upset that House will adjourn without taking up $60.4B #Sandy spending bill


Nancy Pelosi ‏@NancyPelosi

We cannot leave here doing nothing. That would be a disgrace. #Sandy


Nancy Pelosi ‏@NancyPelosi

Letís remember our social compact that government will be there when people are in need. House GOP leaders should allow #Sandy relief vote.


Roll Call Politics ‏@rollcallpols

#Sandy supplemental already passed by Senate. With no House vote, bill must start over in new Congress.

Hoyer rounded up a crew of angry members and brought them to the press gallery because he's apparently not done railing on the no Sandy vote
