Lots of outrage from New York area lawmakers pushing -- house to hold a vote on an aid for super storm -- bit victims bill.
House speaker John Boehner scheduling one vote for Friday on some of the money and another later in the month for the rest of the funding.
The move comes after widespread anger over his decision to cancel action on the bill before the end of the last congress it would've said billions of dollars in aid.
To help with relief after super storm sandy.
So let's talk about it -- Angela McGlowan she is a Fox News political analyst.
What did the speaker do here he incited the ire of many even within his own conference.
By shelving that bill until the new conference the new congress comes in.
We had the one as -- act and at 2101000.
Election where you had tea parties that took over congress rather.
Dealing with that dividing the party.
They voted not to use earmarks so -- the bill on hurricane sandy you -- members of congress putting things on this bill done.
They didn't belong but put Boehner is -- if you do -- if you don't.
I he was trying to adhere to the party by pushing the boat but instead he split the party with.
Peter Keane and also with Christie may also have Tea Party -- that set to -- him.
Dealing with the fact that he voted for a Obama's legislation.
-- -- With the fiscal clicks right -- I read one assessment that said that's part of the reason that the speaker decided they -- the vote because his caucus had just had to vote on the fiscal -- deal many of them didn't like -- they got it passed mostly with democratic support.
But I didn't feel it was an appropriate to put them through another vote on sixteen billion dollars worth of basically unfunded government spending.
But to some of the tea party's done this is too much too little too late I spoke with -- TV he's ahead of freedom works and he -- that.
They -- started negotiating with himself since the cap and that balance don't so the bottom line is this.
The Tea Party is a party on principle.
Did you have the party establishment.
Where you cut deals you get along to get along with that's the part -- So there's division in the party in -- -- even if John Boehner is reelected.
This division is still going to stand so Obama with the fiscal -- negotiations he actually nude art house leadership in the Republican Party.
Well he has taken advantage of that of that -- that your talking about.
The Latino he's taken advantage of it and basically -- three losers.
In this negotiates and fight.
The American people because taxes have been raised.
Also your policy advisors in the White House -- really want to do something about the debt the policy advisors are really want to do something about.
The deficit and then John Boehner because he could not keep.
His own party in line traditionally.
The leadership of the house can actually whip -- to his side.
But Boehner had a party divided in 2000 tan -- more Tea Party -- took over.
The House of Representatives.
But I'm not.
Hearing anybody who seems to think that speaker Boehner is in serious jeopardy of losing his speakership.
He's not in serious jeopardy of losing his -- -- because you only have done 25 to 35 members of congress.
That could potentially.
Vote against him how -- you've had certain Tea Party organizations.
That wanted to do a secret ballot vote so.
They want -- -- against banner but they don't want Boehner to know who actually voted against him so we have those prices science.
Up from my standpoint banners pretty states.
But the bottom line is this is he has strong speaker now this is going to shock you the strongest speaker -- that we -- Is Nancy Pelosi.
She kept up car and lying she gave Obama have the majority of what he -- it.
But Boehner had a party divided and united we stand -- -- -- -- all.
Interest and Angela McGlowan thanks for your assessment of it.
Thank you -- accused him.
