John Boehner Yelled At Frank LoBiondo Over Sandy Aid

Source: Huffington Post

Boehner had a heated exchange with Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-N.J.), one of the members urging the House Republican leadership to bring up the Sandy legislation, according to fellow Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.). The House adjourned on Tuesday night without passing the $60.4 billion Sandy relief package that the Senate approved last week.

"I was chasing the Speaker all over the House floor last night, trying to talk to him and his staff," King said on CNN on Wednesday morning. "He kept telling me, wait until the vote is over, wait until the fiscal cliff vote is over, everything will be taken care of. And then he was gone. He refused to meet with us. He actually yelled at Congressman LoBiondo, saying, 'I'm not meeting with you people.'"

LoBiondo spokesman Jason Galanes confirmed that King's account was "accurate."

In a follow-up interview with Politicker NJ, LoBiondo said he had received assurances from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) that the Sandy bill would come up for a vote as soon as the fiscal cliff deal was voted on.

I anticipate that Harry Reid can tell LoBiondo, "Hey, I know how you feel." Every so often Republicans are confronted with the realities of demanding that Government be shrunken down so that you can drown it in a bathtub. Sometimes, its your friends and family that might drown along with it in the aftermath of a natural disaster or tragedy.

8. Is this just the GOP hating blue NY state, or will they equally deny help to Red states?

Is it coming down to regional rivalries, with only red states getting help?

10. Um the "you people" were fellow R's.

 

It's perfectly possible, that Mr B knows, and has known for some time now that he is valueless to the party, if he can no longer deliver on their demands. That he was deliberatly left swinging in the wind to take the flack for the Fiscal Cliff Disaster.

And his walkout was a big FU to both sides: His own for throwing temper tantrums when they can't have their own way; and the D's for laying blame at his feet for his failure to control a bunch of unreasoning ideologues.
