Colorado Republicans who opposed federal aid for Sandy victims flip-flop with floods in their state

Hypocrisy rating

THESE PEOPLE are shameless:

Four Colorado Republicans who voted against a $50 billion federal relief bill to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy have asked the president for emergency aid to help clean up their state after devastating floods.

President Barack Obama signed an emergency declaration Sunday to help Colorado recover from the floods that continue to ravage many parts of the state.

Republican Reps. Mike Coffman, Cory Gardner, Doug Lamborn and Scott Tipton joined the rest of their state’s delegation in asking Obama to send emergency funds to Colorado.

Those same four Republicans voted againstt the Sandy relief package in January, and Lamborn voted against a smaller billion relief package less than two weeks later.

All three of Colorado’s Democratic representatives voted for each of the Sandy relief packages.
