New Jersey governor on Sandy relief bill: ‘Shame on Congress’

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is blaming House Republicans for delaying a vote on federal funding for states affected by Superstorm Sandy.

"There is only one group to blame for the continued suffering of these innocent victims: the House majority and their speaker, John Boehner," Christie said.

Christie said leaders in Washington had assured him and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo the funding votes would happen on Tuesday or Wednesday. The decision not to hold the vote was Boehner’s, he said. Read more from CNN.
