NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is blasting fellow Republican John Boehner for the House Speaker’s decision to delay a vote on Superstorm Sandy relief and says the inaction is “inexcusable.”

Christie said Wednesday that the House is playing politics with the $60 billion aid request and it’s hurting Northeasterners who are relying on aid to be able to repair their homes, reopen businesses and make decisions about how to rebuild after the October storm.

The governor, who is one of the nation’s highest-profile Republicans, hinted that he might campaign against some members of his own party who acted to delay a storm-aid vote.

In the days after the storm, Christie frequently praised Democratic President Barack Obama for his response and attentiveness.

    Christie take it from me who has been through storms like this one more than once. DON”T wait for the government to come in and help!!!!! Roll up your sleeves and organize your community and start getting things cleaned up on your own.
    Side note– does everyone remember the rapes and killings that happend at the superdome when the levies broke in New Orleans? Fema is building domes along the gulf coast for people to shelter when a storm comes in. Isn’t that smart. Again I say do not wait for government to come and help you.
