Jon Stewart Tears Apart House GOP Over Sandy Aid: If You Can’t Vote For This, ‘Then We’re F*cked’



VIDEO here: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/jon-stewart-tears-apart-house-gop-over-sandy-aid-if-you-cant-vote-for-this-then-were-fcked/


Jon Stewart used his first show of 2013 to tear into House Republicans for the rather notable opposition to the Hurricane Sandy relief bill passed in the Senate. Stewart called them “assholes” and their reasoning “bullshit,” as well as mocking the idea that there was so much pork in the bill many Republicans couldn’t bring themselves to vote for it. -snip-

2. Stewart shredded the GOP for refusing 911 first responder health care, too. Good for him.

“What would Jesus, or any other human being that isn’t an asshole, do?”

I wish he would have ended with that line..because his ending was weak

"I’m not saying you’re responsible for all the problems facing our country"

excuse me? Yes. they. are.

11. Well, to be fair...

Palazzo wanted to vote for relief aid, but he wanted the aid money to be offset by diminished funding for other federal programs. It wasn't a no vote for Sandy aid, just a no vote for the way it was to be acquired--he did not want to authorize the spending of more money that we don't have. He didn't want to screw over New Jersey, but he didn't want to screw over the other 49 states, either. Seems to me that Hurricane Sandy should take priority over most of the stuff we are currently funding, and knowing how bad our deficit is we probably should try to figure out a way to give the east coast what they need while not digging a deeper hole. I don't know, I'm a Stewart fan but Palazzo was thinking big picture on this and now he is the face of evil somehow. There really is a big deficit guys. Bout time for the government to start getting their priorities in order.

12. Palazzo did NOT fight for diminished funding when it was HIS state that he was wanting money for.


Now it not the time for Republicans to start denying disaster victims aid.

Republicans had no problem running up the deficit with TWO UNPAID for WARS, and all of the Bush tax cuts,
so I think their current whining is ridiculous!

I think if you are going to stick up for Republicans then you're not going to have a very good experience at DU with all of us DEMOCRATS.

15. Haha

I totally agree that Repubs have no right to blame Dems for the madness. It started with them, and is the way it is because of them. And for the Repubs to be the ones "taking a stand" against the spending is downright lunacy. But I live in Mississippi (imported), and I find Steven Palazzo to be a pretty good guy, regardless of his party. My belief is that Democrats should be the ones doing the right thing here (prioritizing Sandy aid) since the Republican party does nothing good for Americans other than making us angry enough to show up at the polls. But some Republicans are people too. My post was not defending Republicans, good sir--it was defending Steven Palazzo and his integrity. I don't think he should be crucified for attempting to show reason. You are right that this is not the time for Republicans to start denying disaster aid. But you are wrong in that you feel it is unreasonable to consider shifting dollars instead of magically producing new ones. It was really my bad for making my first post a non-partisan one, having yet to establish my overall anti-republican stance, but gimme a break how many posts up to this point have really related to Mississippi? And I hate to pick a fight here, but Palazzo did not fight for diminished funding when it was HIS state, just as he is not fighting for diminished funding now that it is not his state. He is fighting for a shift of cash (credit really) from other already-authorized funds. That is all. I think this is something that Democrats should be fighting for too. We are broke man. That's real, no matter what jackass political party someone is a member of.

13. Give me a break. Palazzo didnt ask for offsets when he was on the floor asking for help

from this same flood insurance program for Mississippians. But, since its New York and New Jersey, somehow its time to ask for offsets? The man exposed himself as the hypocrite he is. Stewart was spot on with his criticism of Palazzo and every other Republican that voted for the same kind of aid for Katrina victims, but not Sandy victims. Yep, evil pretty much sums up his actions.

I can tell you there is no way in hell any good progressive could support any republican politician from Mississippi in any way.
