These 32 senators voted against Sandy relief

Even worse, the House of Representatives refused to even vote on relief for Americans in the Northeast who are starving and freezing because of Superstorm Sandy.

Republican Rep. Peter King, a New Yorker, ranted against Speaker John Boehner's disgraceful behavior in the video above.

The Newark Star-Ledger reports that New Jersey's members of Congress are also furious. New Jersey Rep. Frank LoBiondo, also a Republican, explains why:
If the Congress starts a new session without voting on the bill, the process in both the House and Senate would have to start afresh ... causing delays that could seriously impact recovery efforts.
