Sixteen of those Democrats voted for all six targeted appropriations bills, introduced at the behest of House Speaker John Boehner, including measures to fund the National Guard and Reserve, NIH, national parks, the District of Columbia and two separate votes for veterans programs. (The House of Representatives voted twice to restore funding for veterans programs, once Oct. 1 and a second time Oct. 3.)

Too bad the “news” media are too busy trying to find people who have actually signed up for ZeroCare after they jumped the gun on that Chad guy who claimed to have done so.

This is just a CYA operation for the home folks. They know it won’t mean anything, and they can claim they are moderates. Pure political theater.

“Of those 16 Democrats, 10 face tough re-election campaigns in 2014:”

Huh? The article title says 57, where does the 16 number come from?

If you’re a Dem they have to worry about all the vets in their district asking them why they didn’t vote to at least fund the VA. The Dems reps don’t want to face them because vets vote in big numbers.

This story is very good news.

True, but the more they get, the better it looks for “spin” to the low-info demo.

It’s going to be VERY interesting to see if that number grows as bill after bill after bill come up.

Hope so. This is getting so frustrating. The sheeple believe whatever the MSM feeds them.

Very nice! I think bitter, ugly Harry Reid will probably make their lives hell, but frankly, he’s getting so irrational that maybe it will be a badge of honor even among Dems to have opposed him.
