Chris Christie Erupts Over Boehner's Refusal To Vote On Relief For Sandy Victims | The New Civil Rights Movement

Chris Christie today erupted over Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner`s refusal to bring a bill to the floor for a vote that would deliver financial relief to victims of Superstorm Sandy, which hit New Jersey as Hurricane Sandy in October. The New Jersey governor labeled the House GOP leadership's actions "a dereliction of duty," and "inexcusable," via Twitter. The Governor will hold a press conference today at 2:00 PM ET today over the House's refusal later today, which you can watch live here. googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1352233393908-0');

House Republicans for weeks have been trying to slash 60 percent of the aid requested by President Obama for victims of the storm that killed over 253 people in seven countries and well over 100 people in the U.S. Sandy is responsible for an estimated $63 billion in damage, much of it in New Jersey and New York.



The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
