Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) recently called into 'The Stephanie Miller Show' on Current TV where he slammed the 67 House Republicans who voted against $9.7 billion in disaster funds for Hurricane Sandy victims last week (video below).

The 67 Republicans voted against the bill because the Hurricane Sandy funds were not paid for with cuts to government programs, reports RawStory.com.

Rep. Grayson said: “It’s the same 67 over and over again. It’s the bath salts caucus, the people that would rather eat your face than cut taxes on the rich.”

He added that Republicans were “holding the country hostage” in order to cut Social Security and Medicare: "They claim they want to save these things when in fact they just want to destroy them."
