In other news water is wet, fire is hot
A week ago the Senate Republican caucus sent a letter to Harry Reid telling him that they would not support acting on any legislation until the Congress vital business had been taken care of:
For that reason, we write to inform you that we will not agree to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to any legislative item until the Senate has acted to fund the government and we have prevented the tax increase that is currently awaiting all American taxpayers. With little time left in this Congressional session, legislative scheduling should be focused on these critical priorities. While there are other items that might ultimately be worthy of the Senates attention, we cannot agree to prioritize any matters above the critical issues of funding the government and preventing a job-killing tax hike.
Well, that didnt last long. Today Susan Collins continued her career long practice of duplicity by reneging on her agreement with her caucus and voting for cloture on the pressing subject of legalizing buggery in the Armed Forces. A vote that failed.
As DrewM notes over at Ace of Spades:
For some reason, Reid decided hed cut off the negotiations and call up the bill. Collins showed up on the floor to ask Reid what was going on considering she seemed to think they were close to a deal. Reid basically told her to stuff it and moved to the vote.
Wow, Collins votes Aye. Reid tells her to go to hell and she says, Thank you for that informative suggestion, I will do just that!
The problem with our moderates is not only that they dont believe in anything not even in the sanctity of their own pledge to their caucus.
Collins is a blithering RINO fool.
Whom among us is surprised?
Here is her contact page:
Fight for those on the front lines who are fighting for you.
Is Susan Collins married? Has she ever been? Does she have a boyfriend?
I watched the vote on C-SPAN.
Her vote was the last one.
Manchin of KY voted with the GOP.
I mean, MANCHIN OF WEST VA.
Less than 2 years left for you suzie.
Enjoy it while you can....
How do We The People get her voted out?
The cloture vote on DADT failed?
Contact page for Mitch McConnell:
Ask him how much more of this struggling folks are supposed to be subjected to in the lame-duck Congress before he acts like a leader and shuts it down...
Yes, the traitors got 57 votes.
Excellent. I dont know where they get more votes in a stand alone bill.
It’s open season on RINOs indefinitely. No bag limit.
RINOs like Collins spend half their time on their knees before Dems and the other half stabbing us in the back.
Vote the corrupt bastards OUT and keep them OUT!!
DADT is dead in the lameduck, without tacking it onto something and this one was tacked into something also.
