Washington Examiner ^ | 10-4-2013 | ASHE SCHOW

Posted on 10/04/2013 12:55:53 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

Fifty-seven House Democrats have broken ranks with Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer to vote with Republicans to fund parts of the government like veterans programs, national parks and the National Institutes of Health.

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.)

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

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.

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.

Combination of 57 different members between all of the separate bills. 16 voted for every single bill.

Yeah, but even the low-info trying to file for “free” health care can see that they’re not getting free, or even any healthcare. They can definitely see that.

Obama should've been more concerned about looking a little more likable than the imperial minded douchebag he is.

It’s a civil war in the Dem party,,dissent in the ranks,,,a split (remember how the media highlighted disagreements in the GOP?)

We need to feed it right back to them!

Of course. But now it is easy to portray this as the bi-partisan House vs. the autocratic Democrat run Senate. There are lots of Dem Senators up next year, and some of them are getting nervous. If one or two break, "Katie bar the door!" (Too bad Manchin was just elected.)

I'll be.

Our RAT Congresscritter in Nashville, Jim Cooper, was one of the 57 who broke ranks. I also heard he was going to donate his salary during Shutdownalypse.

He must be scared about 2014, even though the Pubbies gerrymandered to make his district safe (a pox on both their houses).

It’s really rather perfect, because the people who would support this aren’t getting the one thing they care about, and those of us who understand principle and the bigger picture already know the truth.

Eh, lipstick on a pig when you dis our beloved WWII vets.

He has no idea, having grown up in Indonesia, the love, devotion and protection we feel towards our vets and especially our paternal vets, those of WWII.

No clue.

And he doesn’t know how we communicate. He has control of the MSM. He even has his NSA spying on 3 billion or trillion or however many phone calls and posts.

How can we still be of the mind of preserving our nation when we should be so afraid of his scolding? and so immune to the ‘charismatic’ reading of the teleprompter?
