The no votes: 22 GOPers who balked Boehner
Politico ^ | July 29, 2011 | Politico

Posted on 07/29/2011 4:32:13 PM PDT by americanophile

Speaker John Boehner pushed his debt-ceiling bill through the House Friday night with the support of 218 Republicans. Here are the 22 no votes:

Justin Amash (Mich.) Michele Bachmann (Minn.) Chip Cravaack (Minn.)

Jason Chaffetz (Utah) Scott Desjarlais (Tenn.) Tom Graves (Ga.) Tim Huelskamp (Kans.) Steve King (Iowa) Tim Johnson (Ill.) Tom McClintock (Calif.) Mick Mulvaney (S.C.) Ron Paul (Texas) Connie Mack (Fla.) Jim Jordan (Ohio) Tim Scott (S.C.) Paul Broun (Ga.) Tom Latham (Iowa) Jeff Duncan (S.C.) Trey Gowdy (S.C.) Steve Southerland (Fla.) Joe Walsh (Ill.) Joe Wilson (S.C.)

CORRECTED: Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) voted YES on the Boehner bill. That was incorrect in the initial list. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) has been added to the list.

Funny think is the fact that its meaningless. Hairy Roid will screw with it so badly that it will have no hope of passage when it goes back to the house.

when it goes back to the house

Whatever is coming back from the Senate is going to be extremely hard for the tea partiers to swallow. Either a huge sellout is coming or a zombie apocalypse.

Agreed. If they think this vote was hard, wait ‘till they see what they'll be asked to support when it comes back. Then we'll separate the men from the boys.

I told my Rep to go ahead and vote for it and hope the Senate RINOs keep their side of the deal.

If the Senate RINOs don’t I truly believe it will be the end of the Republican Party.

Yes it will, because at that point the Dems will vote for it along with enough RINOs for it to pass. Even if all the Tea Party freshmen vote no at that point, it’s gone.

I called my congressman’s office when he announced that he would support the Boehner plan and got a decent explanation of it being a strategic vote.

When Reid kills this one it will be the second bill he’s killed and it becomes increasingly tough to portray the republicans as holding up the process.

I wish we could find out which of them voted before the 217.

Voting no after 217 is equally as despicable.

Guess we’re up to at least 218 primary challenges next go-around.

I wish it was that easy. The left has been able to portray the House as extremists while offering nothing in return. Now, Harry gets to try and play the reasoned negotiator and avert a crisis.

I just have no idea how the House can stomach anything worse than what has already been passed.

True, Reid will mess with it, exactly as he and Boehner have been negotiating secretly. (some of the language in Reid’s bill is identical.) Both Rush and Mark Levin have been saying this is a setup.

and, when it comes back, all the Dems will vote for it.
they’ll just need enough votes to pass it. and Boehner will make sure enough “get their asses in line”.

...also, Mark Levin said tonight, that there were only 18 true “no” votes.
he said 4 “yes” votes, switched back at the last minute,
AFTER it was clear there was enough margin to pass.
(unfortunately, Levin said there was no way of telling who the 4 were...)

“If the Senate RINOs don’t I truly believe it will be the end of the Republican Party.”

What Deal? They will not let the bill be changed? I would not believe that. Or is it something else you are thinking of?

Thanks. That’s was my question. Those 4 may be even worse than the 218.

UGH! I think we can probably narrow it down...and should those 4 need to be shamed publicly.

How can you believe that is true? Reid has been absolutely silent to this point as far as anything concrete. So, when he guts the Boehner bill and sends it back, regardless of its content, the Tea Party is going to be demolished under wave after wave of propaganda, calling them terrorists, obstructionists, or worse.

Boehner has created a nightmare for conservatives by allowing CC&B to be tabled and then weakening its terms without ever demanding a counteroffer. What kind of bargaining is that?

It is difficult to distinguish the incompetence from malice.

i sincerely pray that your congressman is correct.
in this case, i’d be very happy if Rush, Mark Levin, and others are wrong.

if they’re not, then we’re going to get screwed worse than tarp,
(“Boehner said the same thing before the TARP vote. He said the exact same thing. He wasn’t Speaker then but before the TARP vote in 2000 he said,
“It’s crucial. We’re at a pressure point in the country where we can’t let ideological purity stand in the right thing to do.””)
and worse than the last “battle” Boehner fought,
when he got 60 billion (1 weeks worth) cut from the budget.

frankly, based on the track record, i’m not hopeful.

and the reason the debt agencies threaten to downgrade us,
is NOT because of the “ceiling” problem. its the deficit.
they’ve said so. if we don’t cut at least 4 billion,
we WILL get downgraded. and that will simply make the TRILLIONS we’re overspending now, cost more.

All I know is that my congressman has been quietly cutting spending and regulations since being seated so I can accept this vote.

After all he defeated the brother of tea party basher Tom Rooney in the primary.

The vote jumped from 216 to 218 leaving 6 pubbies yet to vote. Two voted NO shortly thereafter and 4 voted NO at the gavel.

Somewhere in that 22 are 6 “sleepers.” The question is, which of the remaining 16 has the courage to let us know....or do they want to remain complicit in this deception?

In exchange for this weak bill from Boehner the RINOs are supposed to keep Reid from passing an even worse bill- by denying him cloture.

The RINOs can give Reid ‘something’, but nothing poison like raising the debt ceiling past the election.

Unless one of the 22 tells the public who those 6 were, we will never know for certain. These 22 critters may have voted NO, but until we get the whole story, they all possess suspect loyalties....the 6 were “YEA votes in waiting.”

What part of we can't get our whole pie when we only control one of three houses don't people understand?

Boehner has hung tough on NO TAX INCREASE - to the point that even the Senate has dropped tax increase as part of their bill.

This leaves only the dictator in the WH insisting on more taxes.

What part of, if the bill has EVERYTHING we want in it this first time around - it will go NOWHERE and we get NOTHING, don't people understand.

If we get a good slice of the pie this time - we'll be in the game to get more...and if we get the senate and WH in 2012 - THEN the socialists will truly be in the back seat and on their way to oblivion.

I believe some of these 20 holdouts are doing so not solely on principle but,knowing the bill would pass without their vote, safely cast their no vote more for personal political credits -

flame away

Hairy Roid will screw with it so badly that it will have no hope of passage when it goes back to the house.

Worse, Boehner and a handful of House RINOs will join with Pelosi and her Dems to pass whatever Reid cobbles together. This is the same coalition that foisted TARP on us.

A short term deal that has one or two real cuts, and requires the debt limit to be revisted in 30-60 days would be better, than a fake "grand bargain" where all the cuts come 5-10 years down the line and allows Obama to keep burning through money until after the 2012 election.

Boehner and his band of merry RINOs need to know that this will be the end their political careers if they side with the Dems and the President on this most important issue. Is it possible for the House Republican caucus to oust the Speaker during the term of Congress? Is it possible for a new Speaker Cantor to remove turncoats from committee assignments?

but, Mark Levin did say, it was unlikely we’d ever find out their names, so i don’t think even the honest 16 know.

Hooray to these 22 brave patriots, and particularly to the South Carolina delegation which stayed firm.

I don’t know how Speaker Feigner picked off the other Tea Party congressman, but they may later come to regret it as much as those who fell for the “we have to pass TARP now” crowd.
