67 House Republicans Voted “NO” on Hurricane Sandy Relief Bill

Saturday, January 5, 2013

Reps. Paul Ryan, Louis Gohmert and Joe Wilson voted ‘No’ on Hurricane Sandy relief

67 House Republicans voted “no” on the badly needed Hurricane Sandy relief bill.

Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin who was Mitt Romney’s running mate led the pack of idiots. While Reps. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Louie Gohmert of Texas and Trent Franks of Arizona had absolutely no problem voting for a $50 billion disaster aid bill after Hurricane Katrina and increasing the flood insurance pool by $2 billion in 2005.

Republican Sen. Al D’Amato, whose 98-year old mother was displaced by Hurricane Sandy, tore into the 67 reps who voted against the $9.7 billion funding package saying:

“They’re a bunch of jackasses. This country is about coming to the aid of regions in need,” he said. “We don’t say, ‘Oh no, this money is for Louisiana, I don’t live there so what do I care?”

Listed below is the entire list of the 67 House Republicans who voted against Sandy relief. Their phone numbers are included. If you feel inclined, please call their offices and let them know how you feel about their callous and heartless behavior.

    Fucking basterds. I hope they all suffer personal tragedies including illness.

  2. feminazi says:

    Thank you for publishing this list. I notice most of the Republican assholes listed are from the south so I must conclude they believe it’s acceptable to punish Americans who live in the predominately liberal, Northeast region of the country while they spoon feed people in the South. I hope Democrats keep this in mind the next time there’s a tornado or hurricane in the South and huge human suffering takes place. For me, I plan to spend Monday calling all the offices of the 67 House members.

  3. Tena says:

    Appalling. That’s all I can say. Appalling.

  4. ChiTOM says:

    Blow up the phone lines. Call and call again and again. Make their staff members crazy taking down messages from Americans angry and outraged by their bosses insolence. Don’t be afraid to let your anger be heard. Say it. Mean it. And don’t play nice.

  5. Matteo says:

    Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) is a real lunatic. He’s a genuine reflection of Texas and the radical right in America. Here’s what he said on the Dennis Miller Show, arguing banning assault weapons won’t reduce firearms violence:

    “I refuse to play the game of ‘assault weapon.’ That’s any weapon. It’s a hammer. It’s the machetes in Rwanda that killed 800,000 people, an article that came out this week, the massive number that are killed with hammers.”


  6. DMason says:

    All the usual suspects. I spit on all of them.

  7. Zarathustra says:

    Those 67 Rethuglicans should be put on a desert Island in the middle of the ocean with no access to food or water.

  8. Zarathustra says:

    What I mean is……… for any of them to survive, they would have to kill and eat each other….. Last one left, gets to re-enter society at the end of one year. And then, he gets spend the rest of his life in prison, for ”cannibalism”……

  9. Zarathustra says:

    I’m sure…. most of these cock-suckers are ‘good’ fucking christians, too……

  10. FRAN says:

    Wow! Bastards all. These low life’s would vote yes on funding billions on wars & the military industrial complex, even subsidies for the historic & unprecedented wealth volume of big oil companies.
    Not only did they vote NO, but more than 2 months after the disastrous storm hit!
    They will be the first to come running when help is needed. How do these people sleep @ night?

  11. coppertopfarm says:

    wow – such vitriol. You might remember it was YOUR liberal president who asked for civility.
    I didn’t see ANY of the Republicans who voted no YELLING, CALLING NAMES OR CURSE WORDS at the Democrats who loaded the EXTRA PORK in an urgent bill that did need to get through to help the victims.

  12. TOM339 says:

    coppertopfarm – Yes, what vitriol. Nothing approaching the cruelty and heartlessness of denying hurricane victims much needed financial aid.

    I suppose only hurricane victims who reside in rightwing, red states are deserved of federal help.

    The voters who cast their ballot for GEORGE W. BUSH. What an idiot.

  13. mindy says:

    Isn’t it funny how they all got there raises but help victims of a storm. Why?

  14. Angela Lisowski says:

    Is it not amazing how they can vote in raises for government officials, and that the USA can send taxpayers dollars over to other countries that are in dire need of rehabilitation regarding regions that are destroyed, YET we cannot take care of our own. I myself am a victim of Hurricane Sandy in the Long Beach LI area, and live on an income of less than $25,000yr, had no flood insurance because I cannot afford the cost, and yet had to ask my mom of 87yo who is on SocSec to lend me money that was needed to repair my home because the government is being selfless. WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG HERE!

  15. Jim says:

    Loser fucking jerks, all. Why am I not surprised at this list?
