Every single vote against aid for Hurricane Sandy relief was by Republicans.

Did U.S. Rep. Scott Perry, along with 66 other Republicans, check their humanity at the door of Congress?

Had Hurricane Agnes happened in 2012 instead of 1972, would Perry reject federal aid for Pennsylvania?

Thirty-seven of the 67 Republicans who voted "no" have taken federal aid for their own states when disaster struck.

When you look up "hypocrite" in the dictionary, you'll see all those of 37 Republicans' pictures.

Compassion and human decency are part of what it is to be an elected official.

Rep. Perry, I think you have some things to learn about the size and scope of your role as an elected member of Congress.
