Only seven senators vote against the Defense Authorization ActSubmitted by emp1211 on Thu, 12/08/2011 - 23:49
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.
