Senate Republicans, Out-Romneying Mitt, Cut Sandy Relief By More than 47%

GOP Senators OK with New York and New Jersey just floating away:

WASHINGTON — Republicans in the Senate, seeking to substantially trim a Hurricane Sandy aid package being sought by Democrats, are planning to unveil a $23.8 billion emergency spending plan to finance the recovery efforts of states devastated by the storm. 

The move by Republicans comes as the Senate has opened debate on a $60.4 billion aid bill brought by Democratic leaders. Democrats largely based their proposal on one that President Obama sent to Congress nearly two weeks ago.
