Vocal Minority ^ | 3/22/10 | EricTheRed

Posted on 03/22/2010 11:18:55 AM PDT by EricTheRed_VocalMinority

The health (s)care bill last night was actually bi-partisan—bi-partisan opposition, that is. These are the 34 Dems who voted no yesterday. And if any of them are in your district, call and thank them. They deserve it:

Bobby Bright (Ala.), Rep. Ben Chandler (Ky.), Rep. Travis Childers (Miss.), Rep. Artur Davis (Ala.), Rep. Lincoln Davis (Tenn.), Rep. Chet Edwards (Texas), Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin (S.D.), Rep. Tim Holden (Pa.), Rep. Larry Kissell (N.C.), Rep. Frank Kratovil (Md.), Rep. Dan Lipinski (Ill.), Rep. Stephen Lynch (Mass.), Rep. Jim Marshall (Ga.), Rep. Jim Matheson (Utah), Rep.

That should be the only reason for voting on anything in Congress.

Proud of them all.

Now make sure you work to vote every single one of them out of office because that is the ONLY way Pelosi and the leftists will lose control.

These people are not saints. They are merely haters of America granted dispensation by Speaker Pelosi the privilege of voting against her plan. Screw them all, oust them all, bury them all.

I don’t care why they voted NO. Democrats passed this crap and the only way to reverse it is to vote as many of them out as possiblem regardless of how they voted!

John Adler was early in telling constituents ata Town Hall that he got the message and would vote no.

I am looking forward to his replacement by Republican John Runyan in November.

Don’t think even for a second about leaving democrats in power. Any of them. Adler was a long time liberal dem state legioslator who hopefully is holding this traditionally republican seat for only one term.

LOL! They were all under the witches whip and were only allowed to vote no, not a single one voted no on principle. Sensible liberal is an oxymoron.

Hog wash There are NO sensible Democrats. The no votes are from the most vulnerable districts and were left off the hook. They too MUST be voted OUT!

That is the greatest outrage in this whole process we have been watching for the past week.

Representatives of We The People being 'allowed' to vote their district....essentially do as their constituents want them to to...only because The Democrat Leadership says they can do so. Otherwise, they are being told to ignore their constituents to further a Liberal agenda.

The wishes of the majority of their constituents should trump any and all directives from the Dem leadership. What arrogant asses.

Kratovil isn’t sensible he voted with Pelosi lock-step. He was given cover since his constituents are POed that he sold himself as a blue-dog but isn’t even close to being one. At a town hall somebody hung a dummy of him in effigy here in MD. He’s still toast IMO.

People here won’t forgive a republican for having glanced at a liberal position.

Democrats are not getting any points for pretending to be slightly less liberal than they really are.

If you know the democrat party then you know damn well these people were ALLOWED to vote no because they helped Pelosi take over Congress in the first place.

There is no way on Earth the party allows then to buck it otherwise just to save their own behinds. This is a party machine.

A traitor by any other name is still a traitor.

I’m not buying theater.

However, to give them the benefit of any doubt, hang them with new rope. (Oh sure, I mean political hanging, certainly not the real thing, of course not, by golly.)

If it has a (D) behind its name, vote against it. They are all liars, even when they tell you that they voted against the measure. They are not American, they are nutless europeans.

I agree. They were permitted to vote No to save their jobs. As long as they have a D after their names, they are not to be applauded. Remember they all voted for Obama and Pelosi as speaker.

A Pox on their house!

Pretty much.
Apart from the “nutless Europeans” bit.
There are plenty of nutless Africans amongst them too. :)
Bu essentially, if it's got a “D” behind it's name, take ‘em out.

Artur Davis must have been the only member of the Congressional Black Caucus to vote against it. He is running for Governor of Alabama, and knows if he voted for it he would not have a prayer.

This is great! 32 comments and every one (unless I missed it) correctly states that these "nays" were strictly for camouflage!

This wouldn't have happened 30 years ago — the camouflage would have worked then. I saw enough of it to know.

They were all standing there quaking in their boots with “hope” that Nazi Pelosi wouldn’t come by, put her hand on their shoulder and ask them to “change” their vote.

This group was the “passover” bunch.

Don’t think for a moment they were being ethical. If their votes were needed to pass the bill, they would have voted for it.
