“I’m saying right now, anyone from New York and New Jersey who contributes one penny to congressional Republicans is out of their mind. Because what they did last night was put a knife in the back of New Yorkers and New Jersyans. It was an absolute disgrace.
They wonder why they’re becoming a minority party, why we’re gonna be a party in a permanent minority. What they did last night was so immoral, so disgraceful, so irresponsible. They’re supposed to be the party of family values, and you have families that are starving, families that are suffering, families that are spread all over, living in sub standard housing. This was a disgrace. They are inexcusable and they’ve had it. As far as I’m concerned, I’m on my own, they’re gonna have to go a long way to get my vote on anything.”
