      Obama Urges Republicans to Pass Sandy Aid Bill


      President Barack Obama urged Republicans on Wednesday to approve a $60.4 billion Superstorm Sandy disaster aid bill, adding that coastal states hit hard by the storm desperately need the aid and that time is of the essence. 

      "When tragedy strikes, Americans come together to support those in need. I urge Republicans in the House of Representatives to do the same, bring this important request to a vote today, and pass it without delay for our fellow Americans," the President said in a statement.
