Congressman Thomas Massie Defends Vote Against Sandy Relief Funding

U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., is responding to an attack by state Democratic Party Chair Dan Logsdon, who chastised freshman congressman for voting against federal relief for victims of Superstorm Sandy. Logsdon told WFPL that Massie and fellow Republican Congressman Andy Barr embarrassed Kentucky and that votes for aid shouldn't be politicized. However, in statement Massie echoes Barr's comments and says that Congress should find a way to pay for disaster relief without adding to the country's debt.
