2. Wow, quite a wide swath of stupid.

What are the odds one of those red states will get hit by some disaster? Karma will be a bitch for those 67 fools.

10. Shocking isn't it.

I wonder what tune the California Reps. who voted no will sing when California gets hit by wildfires or mudslides or earthquake.

15. The map is quite misleading

4/5ths of California's reps voted for the funding. It would be far more accurate to show a map where only the congressional districts of those that voted no were colored red.

20. No, it isn't.

It's in red to show that only Republicans voted against the bill, and then the number of Republicans who did so is shown with the entire Republican delegation in parentheses. For example, 3(15) means that three of California's 15 Republican reps voted against the bill.

That's explained at the link.

21. The numerical information is good

and correct. Coloring an entire state red because one or more reps out of many voted against the aid is misleading. Numrical info - correct. Map - misleading.

30. Allow me to correct myself.

The numerical information for California is not correct. Only two California reps voted against it. Not three like the map says.http://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/113-2013/h7

23. Do you want me to tell you what Daryll Issa will say?

You're kidding me.

We have idiots, less than last congress, but...the rural-urban divide is deep

Want me to go into Duncan Hunter?


And to my surprise neither voted against it...Ed Royce R CA-39 and Tom McClintock R CA-4 did. Check what or who they represent.

8. in fairness

a large majority of the house voted for it and the vote came right after these house Republicans got owned on the national stage. Meaning there were a lot of unhappy teabaggers looking for a symbolic FU. Still the nation as a whole seems on the side of this bill. To which point hopefully Dems won't forget this vote come 2014 mid-terms. Americans are more compassionate as a nation than these representatives and particularly in the Gulf coast this vote might be helpful in wedging into those "safe" districts.

17. North Carolina got hit by Sandy too, although to a much lesser extent.

Federal disaster relief was granted to North Carolina for flooding due to Hurricane Sandy. Those four idiots voted against their own state getting disaster relief. Not a surprise, though. I see Virginia Foxx's reliable vote for stupid there.

11. Its really painful to see 80% of WI's delgation go that way

It speaks to how gerrymandering creates misrepresentation of the people's will.

Wisconsinites are not this selfish, we are not this opposed to the national union.

At least 1 was a repug from FL, he of all people should have voted yes on the bill.
