Jon Stewart BLASTS the 67 Republicans who voted against emergency Sandy relief
by BruinKid -- Jan 08, 2013

And then watch the Jon Stewart Video (or read the transcription in the link):

Who are these "assholes"? ... as Jon Stewart puts it.

Well Joan McCarter dug up the listing for this uniquely Republican Hall of Shame:

Well I've been steaming mad about this. Maybe you have been too?

Maybe you'd like to let someone know ... just how mad you are that these Republican morons act like they're above it all ... well just keep reading ...

Hard copy is good.  Portable text is better.  Annotated portable text even more so.  

Pass it on.


[...] but 67 members of the House of Representatives voted "NO" to assisting people who were left, at best, powerless or homeless by a hurricane in November.

All 67 are Republicans:

    Justin Amash (R-MI)
    Andy Barr (R-KY)
    Dan Benishek (R-MI)
    Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI)
    Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)
    Jim Bridenstine (R-OK)
    Mo Brooks (R-AL)
    Paul Broun (R-GA)
    Steve Chabot (R-OH)
    Doug Collins (R-GA)
    Mike Conaway (R-TX)
    Tom Cotton (R-AR)
    Steve Daines (R-MT)
    Ron DeSantis (R-FL)
    Scott DesJarlais (R-TN)
    Sean Duffy (R-WI)
    Jeff Duncan (R-SC)
    Jimmy Duncan (R-TN)
    Stephen Fincher (R-TN)
    John Fleming (R-LA)
    Bill Flores (R-TX)
    Virginia Foxx (R-NC)
    Trent Franks (R-AZ)
    Louie Gohmert (R-TX)
    Bob Goodlatte (R-VA)

    Richard Hudson (R-NC)
    Tim Huelskamp (R-KS)
    Randy Hultgren (R-IL)
    Lynn Jenkins (R-KS)
    Jim Jordan (R-OH)
    Doug Lamborn (R-CO)
    Kenny Marchant (R-TX)
    Thomas Massie (R-KY)
    Tom McClintock (R-CA)
    Mark Meadows (R-NC)
    Markwayne Mullin (R-OK)
    Mick Mulvaney (R-SC)
    Randy Neugebauer (R-TX)
    Steven Palazzo (R-MS)
    Steve Pearce (R-NM)
    Scott Perry (R-PA)
    Tom Petri (R-WI)
    Mike Pompeo (R-KS)
    Tom Price (R-GA)
    Phil Roe (R-TN)
    Todd Rokita (R-IN)
    Keith Rothfus (R-PA)
    Ed Royce (R-CA)
    Paul Ryan (R-WI)
    Matt Salmon (R-AZ)
    David Schweikert (R-AZ)
    Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI)
    Marlin Stutzman (R-IN)
    Mac Thornberry (R-TX)
    Randy Weber (R-TX)
    Brad Wenstrup (R-OH)
    Roger Williams (R-TX)
    Joe Wilson (R-SC)
    Rob Woodall (R-GA)
    Kevin Yoder (R-KS)
    Ted Yoho (R-FL)

Here's a value-added version of the List.  You might want to let them know what you and Jon Stewart think of their Austerity-stinginess:

0    MI    KY    MI    MI    TN    OK    AL    GA    OH    GA
10    TX    AR    MT    FL    TN    WI    SC    TN TN    LA
20    TX    NC    AZ    TX    VA    AZ    SC    GA    MO    MD
30    NC    NC    KS    IL    KS    OH    CO    TX    KY    CA
40    NC    OK    SC    TX    MS    NM    PA    WI    KS    GA
50    TN    IN    PA    CA    WI    AZ    AZ    WI    IN    TX
60    TX    OH    TX    SC    GA    KS    FL

They are a fine-looking bunch of over-paid officials, aren't they?

I bet they are all sleeping warm in their beds every night -- without a care in the world.

Let's change that, shall we.  Let give them something to think about.

That their continuing Obstruction, their "business as usual BS" -- will not go unnoticed.

Not this time.


Afterall the victims of these Extreme events, are far-from-able to speak for themselves, lately.

And if you're more of a verbal person ... Here's another value-added version of the GOP's worst of the worst:

These guys are a BIG part of the problem, not part of the solution.

This is our chance to expose them for the inhuman ideologue hypocrites that they really are. Or at least call them out for it.

In my mind, each and every one of these heartless bastards ...

should HAVE to spend a week-end in a flooded out shell of a house, somewhere in NY or NJ,

-- without heat, without power, without water, without resources --

BEFORE they are ever allowed to vote on a Relief Bill like this again.

Thanks for reading. Thanks for caring.  Thanks for acting.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

  •  I was hoping I wouldn't find any Okies on the list (3+ / 0-)

    but of course there they are.  The brand shiny new teabaggers that just couldn't wait to shit on someone less fortunate than themselves. Kind of like proving their bona fides to their fellow assholes. Yep, we can be real proud of them.

    Apparently they have completely forgotten the federal aid that Oklahoma has received for floods, drought, wildfires and tornado damage. We have sucked up a bunch of those federal dollars and our wingnut guv never misses a chance to ask for more.

    What assholes.

      need to be as far from public service as possible.

      Maybe the should look into careers,

      and Harassment Bill Collection,

      or Wiplash Mortgage Foreclosures.

      They sure don't anything about providing for the General Welfare,
      as the Constitution instructs them to do,
      along with the raising of taxes, to do just that.

      Here's how the game is really Rigged.

    posted a few days ago:

    I matched up these Congressmen
    with donations from the Koch Bros--who fought Sandy funding.

    Now, Americans for Prosperity has sent letters to members of Congress, warning them NOT to vote in favor of pending bills establishing relief funds for Sandy victims. Veiled threats in the communications warn them that Koch Bros’ money will be used for massive attack aid campaigns against those who fail to heed their warnings.
    Steve Lonegan, the head of a New Jersey chapter of Americans for Prosperity, publicly stated the organization’s position, calling the aid package a “disgrace” and further stating that there is no government responsibility to assist such victims, who should be responsible for helping themselves.
    Taken together, 13 of these guys got $138,900 from the Kochs and all received a 100% score from Americans for Prosperity.

    Amash - 2500
    Chabot - 21,000
    Franks - 7500
    Gowdy - 7000
    Graves - 7500
    Harris - 15,000
    Heulskamp - 15,900

    Recommended by:

    which was hit hard by Irene in '11, and prior to that I lived in NJ for 20+ years. Whenever there are disasters in other parts of the country I make sizable donations to the American Red Cross and other disaster relief agencies. However, the next time there's a natural disaster in one of the states with more than 1 US rep. voting against Sandy relief-and there will be more disasters, then said states will not get another penny from me as a donation!
