they only voted no to try and save their jobs
they only voted no because nancy had the votes.
Tanner and Lincoln davis would have voted yes if their votes were needed. They are all whores.
they were ALLOWED to vote no because they are in certain districts that are up for grabs. its an illusion.
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.
How many were “yes” the last time, if they were they are on our “S” list.....
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!
There, fixed it.
They don’t get off the hook by me. Vote every Rat out and then repeal this crap.
They are not ‘sensible’ they voted for the witch for speaker of the house. Off with their heads.
I reject the premise.
No such thing.
They need to be the first to pay the price.
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.
They were in the tank. More would have come over if the Madam wanted them.
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.
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.
sensible liberals? because they voted no? I don’t think so. Nanny is just covering her a55. She told them all exactly how to vote so as to mitigate the repercussions.
Time to start learning that RATS have an agenda & nothing short of losing their office & their power will stop them!
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.)
Here is a list of how they voted now and back in November. Note the ones voting NO both times and the ones who had their armes twisted or fell for bribes.
Glenn Nye voted “NO”. Not my district but it was nice to see him vote what the people wanted.
The ones voted NO.. are afraid of Nov..<br.
The Blue Dogs are a RUSE.. maybe even a myth...
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.
“Sensible” dems my ass! Trying to save their own hydes so they can come back to vote for “Hate Crimes” bills, “Cap and Trade”, commie Supreme court justices, increases on unem. benefits, “Jobs” bills etc, etc.
Please don’t ever use the word “SENSIBLE” and dem in the same sentence! They don’t exist!
Don’t be fooled. They’re making one face in front of us, but another behind your back. EVERY Dim/Soc is high-fiveing this major chunk of liberty they just ripped out from under us.
A lot of them are in swing districts and may not be there next year.
I could not imagine Dan Boren from OK ever voting for that bill.
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!
stupak was the only ‘sensible, I will fight until the very end for pro-life’ and *he* caved. Where were these guys?
They all would have done whatever Pelousy and their Obamamaster told them to do.
“call and thank them”
...I’ll call them to tell them to start packing! The only “thank you” they’ll get is after they close the door behind their sorry asses!
Defeat them in November. I don’t care how they voted. They all have “D”’s behind their names.
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.
Proud? They only voted no because the Rats already had the votes. They would have jumped at the chance to please Massa Obama.
They all must go.
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 wouldn't have happened 30 years ago — the camouflage would have worked then. I saw enough of it to know.
Don’t be fooled by Chet Edwards, he is a very lib dem. He is just scared for his job.
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.
Stretch gave these clowns a pass.
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.
sensible liberals...wow there is 2 words that cant exist side by side in the same universe...
they’d either jump or they would easily cave for a few bucks for an airport.
Want to save their jobs? Only chance should be they immediately switch parties. Otherwise, War on ALL DEMS.
