What nerve! They can just fund the cleanup themselves as far as I'm concerned.

One right for me, and no rights for others. What kind of creeps.

Karma is a bitch, isn't it?

Nothing hypocritical about that, right? After all, their job is to bring as much money into their own state, and to hell with any one else.

Noted. Congress is Dysfunctional. "Back in the Old Days," members of Congress were supportive of each other in emergency matters like this. Everyone knew they had to take care of each other---it was just a no-brainer. Such divisiveness and vitriol now!

They should get the aid, but it should be dependent on every politician who opposed aid for Sandy resigning their office and never again holding a public job, elected or appointed.

Just because some in Colorado being dumb enough to elect scum like these twits and being dumb enough to recall 2 senators for the crime of crossing the NRA, the decent people shouldn't suffer.

This sends a red flag as to the real grass roots problem with America today: Americans don't care about each other. How tragic and potentially fatal a mistake.

I can't see blaming the people of Colorado, but if any of those Republicans, who voted against aid,' property was damages, and they want aid for themselves, HELL NO!!!

Hold the electorate that put them in office accountable. They all will be the last to receive any assistance. Recall these teabits and send them on a one way trip into the universe. If CO can recall two critical politicians for simply wanting rules for gun ownership, you can recall idiots who speak with forked tongue.

"Four Colorado Republicans who voted against a $50 billion federal relief bill to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy have asked the president for emergency aid to help clean up their state after devastating floods."

Isn't it funny (and embarrassing) when the chickens come home to roost?!? Republicanus/Teabagger hypocrites!

And I agree with Tom Cat --- no financial aid for these 4 particular Republicanus/Teabaggers. I

I hope their hypocrisy gets publicised so that the electorate knows just what they are all about.

Maybe not, Gloria, but i think i canhear you, off-line!
I like Robert K's solution, Anne P's adjective, TomCat's idea, and all comments like Lynn S's and Doris L.'s about Karma, or payback being a bitch.
At the same time, there is a prt of me that recalls that the Repugs are always yelling about small gov't and how about we have the BIG, BAD gov't send them some small gov't help, like 5 cents?

Oh, yes, I know, I recognize Doug Lamborn's ugly face. I have been voting against him so long I can't believe he isn't term limited out yet. But this district is so blood red a chimpanzee could win on the Republican ticket. Now our neighbor, the 6th district, has a prayer to dump Coffman out. I am paying more attention to that. You can't fix stupid.
