Attempt to override President on Schip fails. Remember these 156 who stood tall for Conservative values next time you hear the usual "The GOP is selling out the Conservative base" squealings.

No increases in health care entitlements while some of us are still paying "double freight"--our own insurance premiums and the taxes to pay for everyone else's health care.

Exactly, they probably disagree with the bill, but party leadership gave them the OK to vote for it so they can go back home and tell their constituents "See, I tried to get you free stuff with other people's money, but the other mean people wouldn't let me."

Running scared of the Drive By Media. Cannot hardly blame them. When all they hear is hate shouted at them from both the Leftist Noise machine and the "Conservative" media day in and day out, a lot of these guys go into turtle mode. They figured:

"Heck, they are going to be mad at me no matter what I do, might as well not buy the campaign headache this vote will get me"

Sad and shameful but all too human.
