NJ Gov. Christie blasts fellow Republican Boehner

Posted:

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.
