The fact that these RINOs (yes, I used that term, even for Tea Party favorite Rand Paul) are voting for a bill that Politico calls a "bonanza for Democrats" shows just how far the GOP has come from its conservative roots.
Remember these names:
McConnell and Sens. John Cornyn (Texas), Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Deb Fischer (Neb.), Rob Portman (Ohio), John Thune (S.D.), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Jeff Chiesa (N.J.), Roger Wicker (Miss.), Thad Cochran (Miss.), Pat Toomey (Pa.), Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), John Hoeven (N.D.), Richard Burr (N.C.), Rand Paul (Ky.), Susan Collins (Maine), Jerry Moran (Kan.), Roy Blunt (Mo.), Dan Coats (Ind.), Dean Heller (Nev.) and Saxby Chambliss (Ga.) were among the Republicans who voted to advance the bill.
(The wording seems to indicate this may be a partial list, I am still looking for the official roll call, and will update this post with it when I find it.)
Yes, Paul fanboys and fangirls, your man Rand joined such leftist RINOs as Susan Collins in voting for this bill that will destroy the GOP in a generation or two.
They're voting for their own destruction, so it's only a matter of time before our choice in parties becomes left and further-left.

Update: Wouldn't ya know it, just after I click Publish, they post the roll call. Below is the list of all the aye votes. Any and all R's on that list should not receive a penny from conservatives.
