As Twitchy reported yesterday, the House is scheduled to vote Friday on $9 billion in immediate aid to victims of Superstorm Sandy. Even though that aid package is virtually certain to pass, equally certain is that the House GOP will be blamed for denying help to the citizens of New York and New Jersey. We give you Exhibit A, courtesy of Cher.
So, is $9 billion not enough to count? Congress will consider an additional $51 billion on Jan. 15. Much of that $51 billion has been exposed as pure pork that has nothing to do with Sandy — and who wants to bet the House GOP won’t pass that too? Will Republicans then get credit for helping Sandy victims? Will Cher ever make sense?
