New York Republican: Rubio Isnít Welcome Here

04.06.13 07:00 AM

Representative Peter King (R-N.Y.) took a shot Friday at Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) for embarking on a fundraising trip in New York after voting against a relief aid for victims of Hurricane Sandy.

“And by the way, guys like Marco Rubio in Florida. All the money that your people have gotten in Florida over the years from every hurricane that came along,” King said on MSNBC. “And this guy has the nerve to vote against money for New York and then come up here and try to raise money. You know, he can forget it.

ďI made it clear any of those people who voted and postured against money coming to New York and New Jersey and comes up here and wants to take money out of our pockets — forget it, stay home,” he said.

Rubio joined the ranks of a majority of Republican lawmakers who opposed the Sandy relief measures because the bills were packed with pork spending.

King said that the disaster, which pitted Republicans in affected districts against fiscal conservatives from other areas in the country when the issue of financial relief came about, has forever changed his relationship with his colleagues.

“My relationship with Congress will never be the same again. They made us wait 90 to 100 days to give the most basic human aid that is required. It’s absolutely disgraceful,” he said. “And when I see these Republicans, we slap each other on the back, all the camaraderie, ‘Hey, we’re great friends.’ All I know is there were people who were close to dying in my district and no one gave a damn.”
