Congress decides it doesn't have time to help Sandy victims1/2/2013
So, after finally pulling America back from the fiscal cliff, can the U.S. Congress look forward to receiving better approval ratings in 2013? Cue long sigh. After the Senate approved $60 billion in aid to victims of Superstorm Sandy, the House of Representatives was expected to vote on the measure before the 112th Congress officially ends Jan. 3. But no Sandy bill has been scheduled, and House Republicans have decided to let the term end without a vote, which means that the bill would have to start over in the 113th Congress. Republican New York Rep. Peter King remarked on the House floor that the decision was "absolutely inexcusable, absolutely indefensible. We cannot just walk away from our responsibilities." [Source]
