Two Republicans did not vote:

R Jeffrey Flake AZ
R Orrin Hatch UT

They can run, but they can’t (won’t) hide.  They aren’t smart enough to do that.  I cannot bring myself to call them Americans.

“We are at one of the most dangerous points in our history right now — every bit as dangerous as the break-up of the Union before the Civil War,” said Sen Tom Harkin, D-Iowa.

You’re damned straight.  You mean the War of Northern Aggression, you political, hack, democrat dirtbag?   We all know how the scum Ryan will vote, but it will be fun to see how the rest of the House votes go.  I will put those up after they vote this Saturday.

    According to census figures almost 15 million Veterans voted in the 2012 Presidential election, that represents 70% of all Veterans. Approximately 12.4 million voted in the congressional election of 2010 (57% of all Veterans) These figures may very well be bigger in the next election, we can only hope they will.

    As for Mark Pryor from the “Natural State”, I’m not surprised that he would kick Veterans in the teeth when they are down. He does what his Masters tell him to do, he has never served with our Honorable Service members.

    An OATH, the U.S. CONSTITUTION, the BILL OF RIGHTS or seeing “Old Glory” in the morning sun means nothing to him.

      Maybe someone will end it for him. BTW, who do you have running for this office?

        Tom Cotton of Dardanelle, Ar. I believe him to be an honorable man, at least he has shown us no reason to distrust him as yet. He was an Infantry Officer in Iraq & Afghanistan but most impressive to me is…he was a Platoon Leader with the the “Old Guard” at Arlington National Cemetery. Dead-beat duds do not make THAT grade my friend! He comes from simple surroundings, not the spoiled brat, bed wetting, booger eatin’ son of a damned socialist Democrat Senator like Mark Pryor did.

        They were running neck-to-neck the last time I checked, of course the communist Democrats are hammering him, twisting everything to discredit him and lying like they always do. He was dragged into a scandal involving a secret meeting, it came out later that the “evidence” was manufactured and Tom was not involved, they’re trying real hard! They are deathly afraid of this young man and do NOT want him in the Senate.

        As I have said many times, the TRUTH will ALWAYS come out!

        Arkansas has gradually drifted away from the communist party Democrats ideals and has supported a Republican President since 2000. I’m not saying THAT in itself is good, merely that the damned Democrats in this state are in trouble.

        We still have a long way to go but we’re working on it.

          Went through Dardanelle twice while up there a few weeks ago. I hope that people are getting this list. And checking it twice. Just to see who’s been dirty or nice. 🙂

          Seriously, I want these people’s names out to everyone. So that, at least, one of them will have faces to put to their new deck of cards.

    I support cutting veteran pensions: that’s something that will finally make them angry enough to invade DC and “fix” the problem. Maybe even “squeeze” out an increase in their pension 🙂

      I’d personally be happy to give them more. If they would rid us of the BS and criminals in DC. If they’d give them a one way trip to the Potomac.

      Now that logic is hard to argue with Militialaw! That’s a good way of looking at it.

    “Seriously, I want these people’s names out to everyone.” You’re darn tootin ‘rat! I sent them out to everyone on my email list and encouraged them to do the same. I plan on doing that every few months…lest we forget!

      We need that new deck of cards. With these people’s names, addresses, and faces on them. You know who the Ace of Spades is, don’t you?
