UNION BEACH - New Jersey residents still dealing with the aftermath of Sandy are echoing yesterday's angry sentiments from Gov. Chris Christie.

Christie slammed House Republicans yesterday after the vote on Sandy aid was delayed. House Speaker John Boehner has promised a Friday vote on $9 billion in flood insurance and another vote on Jan. 15 for the remaining $51 billion in the aid package.

Union Beach in particular was hit hard by Sandy, with 90 percent of its homes being damaged. The town has seen fire, looting, and vandalism since the storm. Many say they don't know if they'll ever be able to move back into their homes.

Sherrod Daniels once lived in Union Beach with his wife and six children. Now, Daniels doesn't know if they'll ever be able to return.

"My daughter used to play with a neighbor's girl right here," Daniels said, "and now, everybody's just gone."
