Chris Christie's Calls Out Boehner in Presser on Sandy Relief Bill: 'Until Last Night, We Responded to Victims of Natural Disasters Not as Republicans or Democrats'
Wednesday afternoon, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie held a press conference, reacting to the House's failure to take up a vote on Hurricane Sandy relief aid.
Below are some highlights from his remarks:

We respond to innocent victims of natural disasters not as Republicans or Democrats but as Americans; or at least we did until last night."
