    that an editorial would run in the newspaper of each of their home districts castigating them for their duplicity.

      How expensive would it be to run a half page/full page ad in their local district's newspapers? Create some sort of PAC and call it "Americans For Fairness" or some similar feel good name and have it run ads like

      "When disaster struck Kansas/Alabama/Texas/etc. in 2007/2011/2005/etc. Senators and Representatives from both parties worked together to fund relief. Now your Senator/Representative won't help those in need. Do want that to happen to you the next time disaster strikes? Call Senator/Representative today and tell them to fund relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy/next disaster Republicans will try to be dicks about"

      What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.

      •  Somebody should introduce legislation (5+ / 0-)

        forcing every state to either "opt in" to federal disaster relief (and shut up moving forward), or "opt out", and keep their hands in their pockets when disaster strikes.  That's it...you're either all in or you're all out.

        This beggaring thy neighbor bullshit needs to stop, though.

        Oregon: Sure...it's cold. But it's a damp cold.

          That's exactly the right word. Republicans want to reduce the country to beggars and kings. Neo-feudalism.

          Fiscal conservative: a Republican ready to spend $5 to save a dime--especially if that dime is helping a non-donor.

      They voted for giving money to deserving Real 'Muricans(tm) and against giving money to mooching coastal elites. They don't see any duplicity.

      Peter King was right for once when he said that GOP Congress people from the South just simply hate New York. Not that he drew the right conclusions from that.

      Repeal the 2nd amendment.

      •  Kansas rethugs hate too ' ' ' (0+ / 0-)

        As a whole - - these teabagger legislators voted against the "relief funds'.  They completely and conveniently forgot the many times that their state has received federal funds for devastation caused by horrific tornados and severe winter storms.
