Stewart Rips GOP Congress for Delaying Sandy Aid

Back from vacation, host offers choice words to congressional Republicans, "If you guys can't vote for this, we're fucked for the next two years."

Jersey boy Jon Stewart arrived back from his holiday break none too pleased with the delay tactics of the house GOP delaying Hurricane Sandy aid, with more comic timing but similar rage to NJ Governor, Chris Christie's outburst previously.

Watch below:

Stewart addressed the GOP directly, "If you guys can't vote for this, then we're fucked for the next two years. I'm not saying you're responsible for all the problems facing our country, but you sure are making them a lot harder to fix."
