Wussy Republicans…

GOPcapAndTax8on062609.jpg…will determine just how literal the brewing revolution gets (graphic by Leo Alberti at the LCA Broadside via Michelle Malkin).

The 8 seditious “aye” votes today on the horrendous Crap & Trade bill render their mind-numb owners useless.

I would LOVE to know what the 8 reprobates, got in exchange for their souls.  Or perhaps it’s simply that they want the rest of the nation to be in as much misery as their individual states.

Since John McCain never made good on his promise to “name names” in the Senate let alone the House, here are the traitors in alphabetical order:

  1. Bono Mack (R, CA-45)
  2. Castle (R, DE-00)
  3. Kirk (R, IL-10)
  4. Lance (R, NJ-07)
  5. LoBiondo (R, NJ-02)
  6. McHugh (R, NY-23)
  7. Reichert (R, WA-08)
  8. Smith (R, NJ-04)

Won’t you join me in calling their weak, sorry backsides to express your anger and intent to vote them out of office?

This is only part of the speech that Boehner made on the floor earlier this evening, but it was good.  Look for the entire thing when C-Span gets their act together.

Yes ladies and gentlemen, no more holding out “hope,” there are indeed THAT many Neanderthals in Washington DC who will vote for a bill they have never read….in some cases, twice!

  1. Don’t worry, I have their names committed to my memory, regardless of whether this Clean Energy and Security Act (which in reality has nothing to do with either) dies in the Senate.

  2. #1, Kirk’s vote is incredibly tone deaf. Just when it looked as if IL might have a legitimate conservative considering running for Governor against the on-defense Dems, he pulls this crap. IL Republicans need to find somebody besides Kirk.

    I swear the only thing worse than too many of OH’s statewide Republicans in the past decade has been IL’s. OH’s GOP is showing signs of getting it together, and Kasich may force the issue. IL is completely pathetic, and it should be a very red state, even given Chicago.

  4. Remember – come re-election – vote them out! Fot that matter, vote all incumbents out. We need to have a two term limit in place to minimize the influence peddling that happens int he back rooms. Whatever happened to my representatives representing me? I have been betrayed by my elected officials. Oh, and did any of the congress people rally read and reveiw the entire 1200 pages of this bill and the additioanl 800 pages of the manager’s addendum that was released at 3:00 AM on Friday (the same day of the vote!)! What happened to the “transparency of government” that was promised during Obama’s campaing? I gues it sounded good at the time, but is not real. Do you think we should demand all our congress people read all bills before acting on them?

    Well, let’s have congress like a basketball game – you play two quarters, sit the third out, and if the coach thinks you’re good enough, he’ll send you back for the fourth quarter (serve two terms, leave, and you can be re-elected, provided the people want you, for another term after sitting one out!)

    Just an idea!

  5. Checking their ACU ratings to see what their profile is:

    http://www.acuratings.org/2008all.htm

    District Name 2008 2007 YOS Lifetime
    45 BONO MACK 74 65 11 71.69
    AL CASTLE 28 20 16 52.28
    10 KIRK 48 40 8 55.69
    Lance – no record
    2 LoBIONDO 52 44 14 66.61
    23 McHUGH 40 60 16 71.55
    8 REICHERT 56 48 4 56.00
    4 SMITH Chris 28 44 28 60.29

    Given the States they come from it may be too much to ask liberal leaning constituencies to break from neo-Democrats. They need to be burned to a crisp experiencing the policies of liberalism before seeing the impracticality of their emotionalism. Some people can see the danger before it comes to learn of it’s mistake, some people can only learn from experiencing the mistake. However, once learned they won’t make that mistake again.

  6. You know what’s sad about this bill is that supposedly higher educated people who were supposed to be taught critical thinking skills are unable to see the Broken Window Fallacy of the claims to create “green” jobs in the process of losing carbon energy based jobs.

    They need to get their money back for their high priced educations.

  7. As I have been screaming for 3 years, “This is economic terrorism!” It should be called what it is.

  8. The bill includes a “Manufacturing Revolving Loan Fund”. Is this another version of TARP? The Congress no longer needs earmarks. Just pass a revolving loan with some broad criteria, then the President’s Administration gets to pick and choose the economic winners and losers in perpetuity.

    I know we’ve had “loan” programs before in legislation, but a “revolving loan” seems to be a backdoor way to get periodic revenue inflows to the government instead of a vote on tax levels. It’s a way to have a $30B source of rolling expenditures without an Yes/No vote in appropriations legislation.

    “U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced today that legislation he authored, the Investments for Manufacturing Progress and Clean Technology (IMPACT) Act, has been included in sweeping clean energy change legislation being considered today in the U.S. House of Representatives. Brown applauded U.S. Rep. John A. Boccieri (OH-16) and U.S. Rep. Zack Space (OH-18) on their efforts to include the IMPACT Act in the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009….

    “The bill includes all major provisions of Brown’s IMPACT Act, which he announced earlier this month.
    Brown’s IMPACT Act would help small and medium-sized manufacturers transition to the clean energy economy. Brown’s bill creates a $30 billion Manufacturing Revolving Loan Fund to provide these manufacturers with much-needed access to credit.”

  9. Regarding Mark Kirk: He claimed to have read the whole bill. That means he voted Aye with his eyes wide open.

    Can you imagine a windmill producing power anywhere along the North Shore suburbs of Chicago? Wilmette? Highland Park? Nah, me neither.

  10. Taxes as a major reason for small business bankruptcies:

  11. Poor Sunny he’s probably rolling over in his grave at the idiot he waas married to. Can’t wait for Calif to sink in the ocean so we don’t have to support it any more. You have to expect the idiots in NJ to turn. Theyre more interested in saving there seats than whats good for the country. They must have all been dropped on there heads or Oboma must have promised them 72 virgins. For Mack he must have promised her a new arab stud. What a bunch of dumb asses.
