Skip to comments.List of Republican RINOS who voted for TARP
Posted on 08/09/2010 8:32:21 PM PDT by donjuanluis07
We have been scouring the interwebs for lists of the Republicans who voted for the big three bills that have had destructive consequences for the country. Several searches on Google have gotten us very little on the top searches, only on maybe the second or third page do we find lists. Even then they are somewhat hard to maneuver. So we wanted to compile these lists so you can know which RINOs voted for these atrocious bills. We will start rolling these out over the course of the week and keep them in the lists category for future ease of use. The first is TARP. The rest will be out this week, so stay tuned.

Tomorrow, we will list the Republicans that voted for Obamas Stimulus that has turned out to be nothing more than a slush fund for the Democrat Party.
Then, next week, RINOList.org will take a look at the forecast for TARP at the time of the vote and then at the current circumstance two years after. Stay Tuned Rinohunters!
Great list, thanks. I am appending it to the JurnoList150 names. They are of the same stripe.
These are just a few that come to mind...
Ehlers, Vernon MI-3 (Not Running For Re-Election)
Ramstad, James MN-3 (Retired in 2008)
Wilson, Heather NM-1 (Retired in 2008)
LaHood, Ray IL-18 (Retired in 2008)
Wamp, Zach TN-3 (Retiring in 2010)
Didn’t TARP work? I believe that the banks have repaid the Treasury with interest. It’s the Auto bailouts that aren’t working.
It is difficult to get fired up over RINOlist because it is filled with errors. Example: Sen. LindsAy Graham of North Carolina is really LindsEy Graham of SOUTH Carolina.
Texans, take note. John Cornyn is listed.
House of Reps roll call on TARP
Wally Herger, CA 2 and John Campbell, CA 48, aren’t RINOs.
Remember to remind people that a majority of Dems voted for TARP, not Republicans (they try to lay they whole mess on Republicans because Bush signed it, but it was really a Democrat bill from start to finish)
October1, 2008 TARP Tally(House of Representatives):
Ayes: 173 Democrats, 91 Republicans = 264 Ayes
Nays: 63 Democrats, 108 Republicans = 171 Nays
Total Votes 435
October 1, 2008 TARP Tally (Senate):
Ayes 38 Democrats 35 Republicans 1 Independent = 74 Ayes
Nays 10 Democrats 15 Republicans 1 Independent = 25 Nays
Not Voting 1
This issue is whether the federal government should be in the business of bailing out businesses. And more importantly, why in the hell am I being taxed to bail out a company?
Your site is filled with errors.
For example, Paul Ryan (Wisconsin) is not a RINO in the minds of the majority here, but he voted for TARP, yet he is not on your source’s list.
If Herger and Campbell had the poor judgment to vote for TARP, then call them whatever you want, but they should be primaried-out.
Lol, you rather remind me of the Monty Python warrior who is whittled down to nothing but still wants to fight.
Wally Herger and John Campbell are about as “far-right” as you can get. And I suspect Paul Ryan is, too.
Oh, and by the way, Herger is going nowhere but to his Congressional seat and was not “primaried out”.
George Radanovich (CA-19) is retiring.
I see that loud and clear.
Not only that, but didn’t they use TARP money to bail out the auro companies?
I thought that was deemed illegal as the TARP money was legislated for a specific purpose.
Of course, Bush signed off on it, so I guess we can blame him, too. ;o)
