Here Are The 144 Republicans Who Voted To Send The US Into Default

See on Scoop.itDidYouCheckFirst

The House of Representatives passed the bill that reopened the government and suspended the debt ceiling — but 144 members voted against it.

Greg Russak‘s insight:

The first thing to note? This article comes courtesy of Business Insider, not some "crazed" anti-corporatist, liberal, or Democratic Party web site.

 

The second thing is that "…America should send a big "thank you" to all of these folks <the 285 House members who voted ‘yea’>. They put the country’s interests first, just the way any responsible leader should."

Third and finally, it was Republicans and only Republicans – 144 of them, including the fiscal charlatan, Paul Ryan – who abjectly failed in their duty to represent the country and to lead responsibly.

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
