The vote was overwhelming.
Bu 67 Republicans voted no.
Among them were Kentucky Congressmen Andy Barr and Thomas Massie.
In a statement, Barr told ABC 36 he didn’t vote for the bill because Congress wasn’t cutting other spending to pay for it.
The statement says, “As I have traveled the Sixth District, people have consistently asked me to bring common sense to Washington, and pay for what we spend. I strongly support getting immediate federal relief to the victims of Hurricane Sandy. But Congress should be willing to work harder to get our job done in a fiscally responsible manner. We should have stayed here as late as necessary to offset the emergency appropriations with an equal amount of savings.”
