Long Island Congressman Peter King is being a butthurt blowhard.
He said won’t attend a Republican state dinner because Texas Senator Ted Cruz refused funding after Hurricane Sandy, telling Buzzfeed: “I don’t think we should be acknowledging people who are voting against us in our hour of need. Once I found it was him…I decided not to go. I don’t know if I would have gone or not because of scheduling things, but that made it easy once I found out it was Ted Cruz.”
King's actions fail to recognize that the $51 billion aid bill actually passed depsite fiscal conservatives like Cruz opposing the added measures.
At the time, Cruz explained that he couldn’t vote for the package because the bill was loaded with "billions in new spending utterly unrelated to Sandy.”
