Most Republicans Oppose Sandy Relief

It's interesting to see which Republican senators voted for disaster relief for the victims of Sandy. It's not hard to understand why David Vitter of Louisiana, Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker of Mississippi, and Richard Shelby of Alabama supported the relief. Their states have been ravaged by hurricanes and/or tornadoes in recent years. Richard Lugar, Olympia Snowe, and Kay Bailey Hutchison are retiring so they don't have to explain themselves to the Tea Party. Scott Brown wants to run for John Kerry's Senate seat. Susan Collins and Dean Heller just might be decent enough people to have to done the right thing without self-interest playing much of a part in it.

Still, most Republicans voted against any disaster relief for the Mid-Atlantic. That is because they are assholes.
