Who voted?

Wondering who voted against the tax cut extension? In the Senate, it was:
Chafee (R-RI)
Hollings (D-SC)
Snowe (R-ME)
In the House, there were 167 votes against - all Democrats + Bernie Sanders.

For some comments on this phenomenon, we suggest you read this post over at TAPPED.


Remember when the Republicans used to condemn the Democrats for being the "tax and spend" party? Hell, the Republicans are now the "don't tax but spend anyway" party. How irresponsible is that?

I believe the phrase you are looking for is credit-card Republicans.

How about the true test - which senators place the nation's security foremost and refused to vote for the political hack Porter Goss to be head of the CIA? Only 17 REAL Democrats appear to be left. Here is the honor roll:

Bingaman (D-NM)
Byrd (D-WV)
Clinton (D-NY)
Conrad (D-ND)
Corzine (D-NJ)
Dodd (D-CT)
Durbin (D-IL)
Harkin (D-IA)
Kennedy (D-MA)
Lautenberg (D-NJ)
Leahy (D-VT)
Levin (D-MI)
Reed (D-RI)
Rockefeller (D-WV)
Sarbanes (D-MD)
Stabenow (D-MI)
Wyden (D-OR)

The Northern branch of the Southern Party is always pretty decent. Collins and Snowe are far more interested in the (fuzzier) Social Justice/Civil Rights spending than North Mountain Democrats like Conrad and Baucus.
