DEBT CEILING BILL CONTAINED $3 BILLION IN PORK BARREL SPENDING – KEEP HANDY — ROLL CALL VOTE FROM LAST NIGHT

Oct 18, 2013 by

pork-barrel-spendingUPDATE ON 10.17.13 – Now we are finding out that $3 Billion in pork barrel spending projects were hidden in HR 2775, the bill that was passed by Congress last night.  Not only is our national debt still almost $17 Trillion but also no major provisions were put into the bill that pertain to Obamacare.  Nothing got passed that would diminish the medical device tax; Congress and their staffs will still get subsidies for their healthcare while the individual mandate is in place for the rest of us.

 

One of the worst aspects of HR 2775 is that Congressmen wormed their pet projects into the bill:  Congressional spending for the Ohio River dam project was quadrupled to nearly $3 Billion, and Frank Lautenberg’s widow was given $174,000 even though he was one of the 50 richest men in Congress!

 

As the blight of Obamacare and the $17 Trillion national debt fall upon our land in the coming days, those Congressmen who voted against the debt ceiling bill (HR 2775) will be looked upon as heroes.

10.16.13 — KEEP THIS E-MAIL HANDY FOR THE ELECTIONS OF 2014

[10.16.13 – I believe the following are the accurate roll call votes made by the U. S. House and U. S. Senate today in which the majority unfortunately voted to raise the debt limit.  Those who voted to do so are either RINO’s (Republicans in Name Only) or are left-leaning Democrats.  In my book these people need to be voted out of Congress as soon as possible, hopefully in the elections of 2014.  We grassroots voters sent the Congressmen who were elected in 2010 and 2012 to Washington, D. C. to get rid of Obamacare.  Today’s vote by the majority did nothing to take down Obamacare.

 

We need to show our appreciation to those Congressmen who had the courage to stand  on principle for fiscal responsibility.  – Donna Garner]

U. S. SENATE – FIRST VOTE WAS TO END DEBATE (CLOTURE); SECOND VOTE WAS TO RAISE DEBT CEILING

How They Voted: Senate Roll Call on the Debt Limit Deal – HR 2775 – 113TH Congress, 1st Session

 

The 16 NAY votes in the Senate’s initial, procedural vote Wednesday night are the Senators who voted to keep the debate going so that the debt ceiling would not be raised. These are the House members who are fiscally responsible:

 

Cornyn (R-TX)
Crapo (R-ID)
Cruz (R-TX)
Enzi (R-WY)
Grassley (R-IA)
Heller (R-NV)
Johnson (R-WI)

Paul (R-KY)
Risch (R-ID)

One senator, James Inhofe of Oklahoma, did not vote on either measure Wednesday night.

 

The 83 YEA votes are the Senators who wanted to stop debate on HR 2775 and raise the debt ceiling. They are the RINO’s (Republicans in Name Only) and the left-leaning Democrats. All of these need to be voted out as soon as possible, hopefully in the elections of 2014:
