New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn appearing on CNN has some very harsh words of her own for Speaker Boehner and his caucus' decision to skip town without passing the Hurricane Sandy relief bill:
I was stunned, I mean it's really unbelievable, how Speaker Boehner and his party could just walk away from all the New Yorkers, and people in New Jersey and people Connecticut in need. And I don't really even know how you just abdicate your responsibility like that. I mean we have countless people in New York and New Jersey who have been devasted by this storm and Speaker Boehner told them to just drop dead.Really, there's no excuse for calling it a day and leaving Americans, quite literally in the cold and the dark.
And it's just outrageous and to promise us now, a vote weeks from now? Why should we believe him at all? Just shocking.
On assurances the vote is forthcoming, Quinn says, "I'm not going to be satisfied until it's done."
