Former New York Sen. Al D’Amato ripped into the 67 Republicans who voted ‘no’ to the Hurricane Sandy relief bill, calling them “a bunch of jacka*ses.” D’Amato joins a bunch of former and current senators, governors, mayors, and more in expressing the anger and disappointment to the Republicans who are denying Hurricane Sandy victims any sign of relief 65+ days after the storm hit. The money in the Hurricane Sandy relief bill will only be used to the ailing federal flood insurance program to pay the claims of Sandy victims. Surprisingly many of the Republicans who voted no on the bill are from states that got hit by Hurricane Katrina such as Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama, Rep. Steven Palazzo of Biloxi, Miss., Rep. John Fleming of Louisiana, and Reps. Ted Yoho and Ron DeSantis of Florida and former Vice President nominee Paul Ryan. One of the best ways to make sure the Republicans change their mind is to call them and express your anger and disappointment.
