Toxic

Nothing in the fiscal cliff fiasco produced anything like the raw feelings and bitter resentments — on a bipartisan basis — generated by Speaker Boehner’s decision last night to adjourn the 112th Congress without taking up Hurricane Sandy relief legislation.

This morning on CNN, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) absolutely went off on Boehner and the Republican Party. King is blustery by nature, but this was exceptional even for him, and reflects a deep anger among Members at the House GOP leadership’s last act of this Congress.
