First Chris Christie hugs Barack Obama a couple of weeks before last November’s election, now the New Jersey governor has nothing good to say about House Republicans after they torched a vote on a bill for federal aid for his hurricane-stricken state.
Hurricane Sandy got some of the blame/credit for the results of November’s election. It could influence 2016 too.
Christie noted — accurately — that New Jersey is one of the few states that gives the federal government more money than it gets back. Most states that don’t are Republican states, by the way.
