Not One Republican Vote
…I don’t know how you can come away from this sideshow thinking anything but that Republicans are determined to have their Great Depression and that they openly wish failure upon the United States, or at least no economic recovery for anyone who needs it. Americans seem to have gotten that message too; it’s why Democrats have a 24-point generic ballot lead at this point for the next election…
Ike Skelton (D) voted “yes”. Think about that.
Not one republican vote. Not one. Post-partisanship is just a pile of useless bullshit.
There is no such thing as a republican moderate. All they have left are right wingnuts and party hacks.
