Full $51 billion relief bill passed the House, with 179 Republicans opposed.

A measure providing $51 billion for relief and recovery from Hurricane Sandy was approved by a bipartisan majority in the House on Tuesday evening, three weeks after Northeast Republicans excoriated the chamber's GOP leaders for failing to vote on storm aid before the end of the last Congress.


The full $51 billion relief bill passed the House 241-180, with 179 Republicans opposed.

2. The important bit is that it came to a vote

with more than 1/2 of the republican caucus opposed. This has not happened much since 2010.

3. OK so now as part of the debt reduction negotiations cut programs in the districts

 

of the a-holes who voted no.

They are the ones who want austerity, give it to them.

No don't cut the social safety net but there is plenty of federal dollars that can easily be taken away providing the cuts they want but in their backyard. Force them to vote no against the guts they want.

That is compromise and payback.

Oh yeah and fun to boot!

6. I totally agree. Cuts in their backyard would be a great message. If they are true to their word

they should have no problem voting for that. Even better would be cuts in their backyard before any future disaster money goes to their districts. Let's see how their constituents react then. Oh, everyone print out this list for any future presidential run (P. Ryan??) by these who voted "no" to fellow american victims!!!

4. Obviously they haven't yet hit the point at which they will no longer descend into depravity.

There is no bottom there. None.

I hope their constituents are taking notes.

5. Here is the full roll

YEAS NAYS PRES NV
REPUBLICAN 49 179 4
DEMOCRATIC 192 1 7
TOTALS 241 180 11

49 Republicans for the bill, 11 NV

Not sure who the Dem was that voted against it. I looked at the names and could pick that one out.

Oregon delegation voted 4-1 for the bill.
