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)

    Mike Conaway (R-TX)
    Tom Cotton (R-AR)
    Steve Daines (R-MT)
    Ron DeSantis (R-FL)
    Scott DesJarlais (R-TN)
    Sean Duffy (R-WI)

    Tom McClintock (R-CA)
    Mark Meadows (R-NC)
    Markwayne Mullin (R-OK)
    Mick Mulvaney (R-SC)

    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.
