The key vote on the bill that funds the Obama amnesty and Obamacare as well as the rest of government was the vote on the rule that put it on the floor, and it barely slid through by two votes. Any Congressman who voted for it voted to continue Obamacare and to allow Obama to proceed with his amnesty decree, because this bill funds both with no restrictions. The only North Carolinian to stand up and vote to stop this bill from proceeding was our own Walter Jones. The rest of the NC ''Republican'' congressmen voted for a piece of legislation that has been endorsed by Harry Reid and Barack Obama.

Remember a long time ago... November... when Republicans ran against Obamacare and for border security? Those were the good old days.
One of my favorites-not that it’s saying much. I don’t have many congressmen whom I don’t despise.
He is my rep, still a fence sitter on some things.
My rep Howard Coble is retiring, so not much you can do about it.
Here in Louisiana, Cassidy repeatedly campaigned against Mary Landrieu based on the facts that:
1. Landrieu voted with Obama 97% of the time.
2. Landrieu voted for Obamacare.
3. Landrieu voted for amnesty.
Cassidy promised he would not vote for those things. Days after winning the election, and in Congress,
1. Cassidy votes with Obama
2. Cassidy votes for Obamacare
3. Cassidy votes for amnesty
......it’s like the day they get to the Capitol Bldg some Chicago knee breaker busts in their office and throws down pictures of their kids getting off the school bus.
Never seen anything like in my long life. All these guys are bought or scared. Effectively, we the people don’t have a government because somebody somewhere is controlling them.
Isn’t the replacement that good guy who said we should consider airstrikes on the Mexican border?
I think airstrikes against former Mexican presidents should be considered.
Calderon’s empty mansion or vineyard should be blown up as a message to Mexican presidents to do better while they are in office.
I'll raise your bombing of Mexican presidents with a declaration of war on Mexico.
I would have bet Marsha Blackburn voted no. Naturally our little pseudo conservative rep voted for it. I think he is going to be gone in 2016.
Who is your member ?
I dont trust him either but the other guy was a Boehner bootlicker and endorsed by everyone but Walter Jones.
A Boehner bootlicker is worse because they will let Boehner ram through everything.
Look. Hes my boss. How successful am I going to be at work if I am always causing problems for the boss?
I was very disappointed to see that Foxx voted for the bill.
I have been one of her supporters but I am going to reconsider that.
I am not in her district, but I have donated in the past.
Maybe no more.
Rob Woodalll 7th Dist GA. He is taking a shellacking from everyone on Facebook. I think we will primary him in 2016.
Known Howard for yrs....good guy
Not awful bad, has a Heritage score of 71%.
I see he was elected chairman of the (ostensibly Conservative) Republican Study Committee back in July. You’d think as John Linder’s former Chief of Staff he’d be pretty solid. Unfortunately, more than a few people got hoodwinked or tried rationalizing their votes on that monstrosity of a bill.
Burr is worse.
I like him too. I think he voted wrong on the rule.
