Remind Me Again Why Anyone Should Support the Spineless GOP

Debt Up $1.59 Trillion Under GOP-Controlled House


  1. Well... they're "our" spineless politicians (some of the time). And, there is the occasional nugget in the mud, e.g. Chris Smith of N.J. But your point is well-taken.


  2. Well, Chris Smith might be pro-life, but he is part of the problem in some ways. Didn't he support Obamacare until he realized abortion was going to be in it (I hope I am wrong. And then started fighting against it? and other liberal spending sprees? That's called being duplicitous.

    Here is part of his record:

    Voted YES on expanding the Children's Health Insurance Program. (Jan 2009)

    Voted YES on overriding veto on expansion of Medicare. (Jul 2008)

    Voted YES on adding 2 to 4 million children to SCHIP eligibility.

    Voted YES on extending the PATRIOT Act's roving wiretaps. (Feb 2011)

    Voted NO on requiring FISA warrants for wiretaps in US, but not abroad.

    Voted YES on providing $70 million for Section 8 Housing vouchers. (Jun 2006)
