Which Republicans voted today to support Reid's 'Class Warfare' vote...
Senate.gov ^ | July 11, 2011 | The Bronze Titan

Posted on 07/11/2011 7:18:09 PM PDT by The Bronze Titan

Bill - S. 1323:

"Mr. REID introduced the following bill; which was read twice and ordered to be placed on the calendar"

"Sense of the Senate- It is the sense of the Senate that any agreement to reduce the budget deficit should require
that those earning $1,000,000 or more per year make a more meaningful contribution
to the deficit reduction effort."

The Final Vote was 69-27 in favor.

17 "Republicans" joined Reid in support of his Class War ideology propaganda game (a vote which carries not weight).
24 Republicans wanted no part of this (along with 1 Dem)

So who are these Republicans that sided with Reid on his pet 'declaration' called "Sense of the Senate Vote"???...

SIDING WITH REID TO SUPPORT THE 'SOCIALIST' RHETORIC:

Alexander (R-TN)
Brown (R-MA)
Burr (R-NC)
Coats (R-IN)
Collins (R-ME)
Corker (R-TN)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Graham (R-SC)
Hoeven (R-ND)
Johanns (R-NE)
Kirk (R-IL)
Kyl (R-AZ)
McCain (R-AZ)
McConnell (R-KY)
Sessions (R-AL)
Snowe (R-ME)
Thune (R-SD)

The Republicans voting "NAY" against this CRAP were:

Ayotte (R-NH)
Barrasso (R-WY)
Blunt (R-MO)
Boozman (R-AR)
Chambliss (R-GA)
Coburn (R-OK)
Cochran (R-MS)
Crapo (R-ID)
DeMint (R-SC)
Enzi (R-WY)
Grassley (R-IA)
Hatch (R-UT)
Heller (R-NV)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Isakson (R-GA)
Johnson (R-WI)
Lee (R-UT)

Not voting:
Brown (D-OH)
Murkowski (R-AK)
Rubio (R-FL)
Vitter (R-LA)

Here's what Jim Demint had to say about this REID's "Sense of the Senate" voting shenanigans:

-"Sen. Reid's "Sense of the Senate" resolution (S. 1323),
currently on the Senate floor, contains no actual policy.
It notes several class-warfare non-sequiturs, and then calls
on Americans making more than $1 million per year "to make
a more meaningful contribution to the deficit reduction effort."
-Jim DeMint

The only reason Hatch voted against it is because he’s up for reelection.

Rubio did not vote. I don’t know why. It was “show” vote, with no legislative impact. But, I hardly think that he needs to prove anything with him taking this vote.

You left off the \sarc tag?

If he was in town and didn't vote against this, he may as well have voted for it.

If he was out of town for a family emergency, I'll give him a pass. Otherwise....

AFAIAC for anything less than a *real* family emergency, these clowns should be in attendance all the time.

We now have “more meaningful contribution” to go along with “share the pain’ and ‘fair share’. All these mean the same thing. “From each according to ability”. These are word games being played by our Marxist, Communist leaders.

I think I know what the Republicans are doing who voted Yes. They view this meaningless resolution as mere gamesmanship by Harry Reid. So they're playing a game in response to Harry's game: they're voting Yes on the resolution just because voting No doesn't look good in MSM news reports, but later on they're going to vote No on any actual bills to increase tax rates.

In effect, they're giving Harry the finger and telling him they're not going to fall into his media trap by voting No on this resolution. But watch what happens from here--they will vote against actual tax increases. So I wouldn't make too much out of this vote...it's all a game in the senate.

No, what it means is that 2 conservatives split a larger vote than the one liberal did. The only reason I voted for Alexander last time was Obama. I was hoping he wouldn't have a super majority. Never again.

Ever.

"... to reduce the budget deficit should require that those Bolshecrats earning $1,000,000 or more per year make a more meaningful contribution to the deficit reduction effort."

Now, I can support it. And, given the amount of effort the Bolshies are putting in, how can they not agree?

Nebraska was interesting. The Republican voted with Reid and the Dimocrat, Nelson, voted nay. Of course, Nelson is running scared because of the animosity towards him after the health care bill fiasco.

Still, curiouser and curiouser as Alice said.
