If there's a delay in the house, John Boener has his name on it. Many representatives cite him angrily yelling "I'm not meeting with you people" and leaving after spending most of the day promising Sandy aid would be discussed. He's a lying deceitful puke, to the point his own party turned on him (sadly only briefly.) Everybody in the house Democrat and Republican has a poor approval rating, none worse than he.
Boehner is to blame for the delay in Hurricane Sandy aid because he is the leader of the House and he is responsible to talk with the Democrats to come up with an agreement. But he is inefficient and he took so long, and at the end, it is the citizens who suffer.
Yes, House Speaker Boehner is absolutely to blame for the delay in Hurricane Sandy aid. Had Ohio been hit, would he have delayed the vote? I'm happy to see members of his own party, like Rep. King and Governor Christie calling him on his political stunt. He's playing with people's lives, and he shouldn't be permitted to get away with it!
Yes I do think that Speaker of the House Boehner should be to blame for the delay in the Hurricane Sandy relief aid. He is, after all, the main person in charge of the House of Representatives and it was his job to make sure the bill had a chance to be voted on.
