>>> last week, 67 house republicans voted against relief for victims of hurricane sandy. but, surprise, surprise. most sing a different tune if those are in need are from their home. think progress reports that 37 republicans who opposed the bill had earlier supported disaster relief for their own states. leading the pact? congressman paul ryan . he said no to sandy last week. but he said yes to federal funding in 2008 after flooding in his home state of wisconsin . and then there's congressman from mississippi. he voted against the sandy bill, too. but just four moblts ago, palazzo was thrilled to receive federal aid after hurricane isaac . he said we cannot thank the governor's office and fema enough for their continued support. he even held a press conference to talk about the importance of federal aid .
>> i was able to sit in on a financial services hearing and we were talking about the importance of a national flood insurance program . 20,000 communities across america live on or near water and that program was so important to provide stability to families.
>> that hipocracy is great. but, wait, there's more. after hurricane katrina in 2005 , he was lining up to ask for federal help. he even put his name right on the paper work. send us money so we can put families back together. send us money ? oh, i see. you need those funds right away when it's going to help you and yours. but when the victims are in blue states who voted for president obama , well, then they're on their own. did you congressman think we give you any relief from your own hipacracy? nice try, but we got you.
