Well, the vote went down on a procedural rule to let John Boehner’s ObamaCare-funding, amnesty funding billion-dollar cromnibus spending binge move forward. Sixteen House Republicans refused to support the rule to allow the spending binge to go forward. Out of nine North Carolina Republicans, Walter Jones was the only one with the guts and the integrity to stand by promises to fight ObamaCare and amnesty. The complete list of these heroic GOP rebels can be found here.
The cromnibus bill got only 214 votes (212 against). So, House leaders are postponing the actual vote on the spending bill. Of course, that gives Boehner & co. more time to twist arms and intimidate. Hit the phones. (202-224-3121 or 202-225-3121). Praise the heroes who stood strong in the rule vote. Work on those who still don’t have the guts to do the right thing — honoring their campaign promises, standing up for America. That kind of thing.
