The Ryan “balanced budget in 10 years” passed in the House today in a 221-207 vote.
ALL DEMOCRATS voted against it.
ALL REPUBLICANS but 10 voted for it.
Two small Rep. groups voted against it… fringers, and cowards.
The fringers voted against the bill because even though it has NO chance of becoming law…and even though it balances the budget in 1/2 the time of LAST years’ bill…it didn’t go FAR or FAST enough. Always in touch with reality. [/sarc]
The cowards voted against it because they feared standing up for lower spending and the roll back of Obamacare would cost them their next election in their districts.
Remember these 10 next time one shows up on YOUR voting machine.
Rep. Chris Gibson, R-N.Y.
Rep. Joe Heck R-NV
Rep. Paul Broun’s, R-Ga.
Rep. Phil Gingrey R-GA
Rep. Justin Amash R-MI
Rep. Thomas Massie R-KY
Rep. Walter Jones R-NC
Rep. David McKinley R-WV
Rep. Randy Forbes R-VA
Rep. Rick Crawford R-AR
In the meantime…you may want to write and voice your displeasure at their childishness and lack of fortitude as the case may be.
