Just when you think the GOP Senate obstructionists can’t sink any lower, they do. Brandon Friedman at VetVoice posed the question: “Will Senate Republicans Vote Against the Troops?”
We have our answer. Yes, the Senate Republicans did vote against the troops.
Mitch McConnell and his fellow Republicans have basically been filibustering every bill til the oil companies get what they want. But, surely, they wouldn’t put the oil companies over America’s defense needs when we’re in the middle of two wars??? Wrong. They did. Seriously, they they filibustered a bill, S. 3001, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2009, which, among other things, provided pay raises for troops, health care and protection from IEDs. The bill needed 60 votes. Thirty-eight Republicans voted NO against moving forward.
This is the same day that this was posted…
The lie, cheat and steal Republican Genuises of propaganda have made it PERFECTLY CLEAR where they stand when it comes to “supporting our troops”! BIG BUSINESS AND THEIR MONEY COMES FIRST BEFORE THE COUNTRY, THE TROOPS AND WHAT IS RIGHT!
What I want to know is Why do they get away with it? If the situation had been reversed those same Republicans (we ought to call them Repugnantcans) would be screaming bloody murder about how the other side was ANTI-PATRIOTIC!
The only anti-patriots we have in this country are GW Bush, his entire administration and those that enable him in the Senate.
