Representative Vicky Hartzler (r), on Facebook explaining her yes vote for the continuing resolution omnibus bill to keep funding the federal government:
I voted in favor of slashing IRS and EPA funding; in favor of promoting a strong national defense and providing for our troops and veterans; in favor of expanded pro-life legislation; in favor of keeping the Executive in check.
And some of the comments:
[….] What about cuts to military benefits while supporting big business tax breaks, your version of events is very selective
[….] Nice of you to cover gambling debts for wall street. How Patriotic ?
[….] You all had your chance and blew it up the voters back side. I have lost my trust in you.
[….] You will NEVER get my vote again. You are taking food off the table for my family. I don’t have a big salary like you. Thanks for voting a budget cut. I sure wish I could vote to cut your salary.
[….] Parroting the establishment line. YOU BETRAYED US!
[….] I don’t like the look of this… so you think that cutting funding for government agencies such as the EPA and other agencies that are supposed to help our environment is the answer to our problems? It’s not!
[….] We can all see now that it is time to replace John Boehner as speaker of the House. This bill should not have seen the light of day. Of course it kind of didnt’ since it was written in a back room late at night and it was passed the next day in a late night House session. This is not what we voted for back in November.
[….] So angry at your betrayal! This has to stop! I will never vote for an incumbent again.
[….] “CUTS FUNDING FOR THE EPA”. Excuse me? $60M? Why don’t you highlight that this $60M “cut” is out of an $8,200,000,000 budget! That is a 0.0007% reduction. Boy you really hit EPA hard with that one!
A vote “for” this Cromnibus was a vote against US!
[….] I would like to know why you voted for the cromibus bill? You sold out like the so-called conservatives. I hope you have a good reason. Do what you were voted in for…not as same old business.
[….] Great you cut funding for the agency in charge of colecting the moneies that pay your salary and the agency that protects our water. No pay check for you and no clean water for you and yours. Isn’t there something about cutting ones nose off to spit their face?
[….] I’m very disappointed in your yes vote. Seems like you’ve fallen in line with the establishment. We thought you’d be different.
[….] Baloney! Within the last 2 days you voted for increased spying on American Citizens and the wasteful spending bill that goes against the American Peoples wishes. Did you not learn anything from the November election and what the people said they wanted?
[….] 100% wrong 100% of the time You are just Old Reliable Congresswoman. And your little sheep will bleat
[….] You no longer represent Missouri, you only now represent a Tyrannical Government !
[….] Total betrayal. You all just refuse to listen, refuse to make any real changes.
[….] Save it! You are a RINO and are on your way out.
[….] Don’t worry everyone. Next year’s budget will be just what you want…crushing the poor and continued record growth of the wealthy. It is guaranteed with the triple increase in campaign financing.
[….] ….when you have to bail out the Wall Street banks again in a few years you are going to wish you had listened to Elizabeth Warren.
From History of the World: Part I (1981):
Count de Monet: It is said that the people are revolting.
King Louis XVI: You said it! They stink on ice!
