Only seven senators vote against the Defense Authorization Act

Rand Paul was one of only seven Senators (3 republicans, 3 democrats, 1 independent) who voted against the Defense Authorization Act. Where are our so-called progressives and tea party candidates who claim to protect the constitution??

Thank you to the seven patriots who voted against:

(R) Utah - Michael Lee
(R) Oklahoma - Tom Coburn
(R) Kentucky - Rand Paul
(D) Iowa - Tom Harkin
(D) Oregon - Jeff Merkley
(D) Oregon - Ron Wyden
(I) Vermont - Bernie Sanders

So-called progressive Senators Dianne Feinstein, Dick Durben, Al Franken and Bob Casey all voted for the Defense Authorization Act.

So did so-called tea party Senators Pat Toomey, Scott Brown, Orrin Hatch and Jim DeMint.

They should be ashamed and the voters should hold them accountable.

Senators From Oregon

Oh my gosh, they actually did something right. I can't hardly stand either one of them. It amazes me that my state Oregon, is so beautiful and wild, people love to hunt, fish, ride horses, from the coast to the mountians. Yet they have a socialistic mindset. Well, Portland does anyway. The rest of the state loves freedom, hates government intervention in their lives... I think the infiltration of our state from California had a lot to do with it.

Anyway, I guess I'm gonna have write a thank you letter to the scums before they vote on something I'm going to have to take it back.

Scott Brown is a tea party fake. I'm seriously disappointed in Jim DeMint and Orrin Hatch. What the hell were they thinking? Huh?

I guess we can't count on DeMint's endorsement of RP now. Wow, I'm really sad that DeMint voted that way...

I called my Senator, Marco

I called my Senator, Marco Rubio and told his office because of his stances on this bill and on several amendments that Rand Paul tried to put in to protect Americans which he opposed, I will never vote for him again and encourage those I know to do the same.

I feel the same way

I was going to post about Rubio now being on my scum list, but I couldn't remember if he was a Senator or Rep. So I will definitely add him to my scum list next to, sadly, DeMint. I had high hopes with Rubio, even though he isn't my senator, but alas, it's not to be so. *sigh*
