Conservative Columnist: Hurricane Sandy Relief Bill Was ‘A Rape of the Treasury’

Fox News' contributor and syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer defended John Boehner's decision not to bring a $60 billion Hurricane Sandy Relief bill to the floor last week, saying the Speaker had prevented a "rape of the Treasury" by passing on a bill that would have helped victims of Hurricane Sandy.

"I think what Boehner did in postponing the vote until today was absolutely right," he said on "Special Report." "That was a rape of the Treasury. $60 billion, including a ton of pork. The part that was essential that passed today was to replenish the flood insurance. That's right, and the rest ought to be debated in regular order."
