Spineless Republicans Show True Colors By Voting “NO” on RSC Budget

Take a Good Look at the Names

While this vote doesn’t and shouldn’t automatically deem somebody a complete RINO, the vote today was disappointing as 118 Republicans voted against the RSC Budget which would balance in 4 years (a whole lot better than the Ryan Budget). This was very sad, and while I think the Democrats voting “present” should stop playing games, Republicans must decide whether they truly want to be the party of limited government or vote against better budgets.

Take a good look at these names of the spineless GOPers. And you should expect to see several of their names voting “yes” when the CR (that sadly passed the Senate today) returns to them. In 2014, we must elect Republicans with spines…PERIOD.
