Mr. REED. Mr. Speaker, as a Republican, I stand up here today to join my colleagues on the other side of the aisle and associate my words with the gentleman from Maryland.
Even though my district was not impacted by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, it is right and just that we take up this bill. I ask our Speaker to reconsider the decision that has been made not to address this supplemental in this Congress. And I join my colleagues across the aisle to ask for that relief so that we can get to the people that need it the aid that they so are in need of on this day and this age.
