Debbie Stabenow Votes AGAINST Funding Fence She Voted to Build (MI Senate race)
Michael Bouchard for Senate ^ | July 14, 2006

Posted on 07/16/2006 12:17:18 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued

Yesterday Senator Debbie Stabenow voted against an amendment that would have funded construction of the fence and vehicle barriers that she voted to build in May. (S.2611, CQ Vote #126: Adopted 83-16: R 55-0; D 28-15; I 0-1, May 17, 2006, Stabenow voted Yea; H.R.5441, CQ Vote #200: Rejected 29-71: R 27-28: D 2-43; I 0-1, July 13, 2006, Stabenow voted Nay)

“Debbie Stabenow says that she wants to secure the borders, but votes against funding the technology designed to protect our families,” said Michael Bouchard, U.S. Senate candidate. “She is saying one thing in Michigan, but voting another way in Washington.”

Stabenow voted for an amendment to the Immigration Bill in May to “increase the amount of fencing and improve vehicle barriers installed along the southwest border of the United States.” (S.2611, CQ Vote #126: Adopted 83-16: R 55-0; D 28-15; I 0-1, May 17, 2006, Stabenow voted Yea)

But Stabenow voted against yesterday’s amendment to the 2007 Homeland Security Appropriations that would have provided “an additional $1.83 billion to construct 370 miles of double-layered fencing and at least 461 miles of vehicle barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border.” This would not have increased the overall cost of the bill, as the amendment called for offset spending. (CQ Vote #200: Rejected 29-71: R 27-28: D 2-43; I 0-1, July 13, 2006, Stabenow voted Nay)

“Senator Stabenow says that she ‘gets it,’ but votes against securing our borders and strengthening homeland security,” added Bouchard. “Michigan families deserve a Senator who will do more than just talk about securing our borders. We need a Senator who will actually get the job done.”

She voted for the fence before she voted against it.

Sound familiar?

Yeah, she did. I wonder, does that amount to a flip-flop-flip?

There is this still from a Senate speech where she stands next to a sign that reads "Hopelessly Incompetent." That would be a nice touch to this thread.

Thanks!

If the Bouchard campaign has any smarts, they will use this clip in future TV ads.

Hutchison and Cornyn, Texas's senators, both voted AGAINST funding the building of the fence. Too bad we can only withhold our vote for Hutchison this year.

This woman has got to be the most brain-dead Senator in all of the Senate.

IMO, it's time for the American voters to "take care of business." Face reality, vote out politicians that won't put our country, our freedoms, and our security first. Send them packing; back to the real world and the mess they created.

Too bad we can't get the message out to the voters.

What exactly is the appeal of this woman to voters?

Apparently it's the fact that she has breasts and that most other women in Michigan also have them.

Actually I'm just guessing at that...

Once the primary is over, if the GOP nominee is reasonably competetive, he'll get the financing to get that message out. And thankfully, the primary has been relatively free of negative advertising and anger.

Hold onto your hat as I'm sure the Liberals are plotting their lying and dirty tricks as I write this note. As Rush says, they think they're entitled to power. They will do anything to win even destroy our country in the process. I have absolutely no doubts about that.
