Will "Mr. No" get sent back to Washington DC?Submitted by tog2476 on Tue, 10/09/2012 - 06:57
GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan (Reuters) - U.S. freshman Republican Congressman Justin Amash has not been afraid to rub his party - and sometimes his western Michigan constituents - the wrong way.
And he makes no excuses about the many things he has cast votes against.
He voted against the budget bill authored by Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan this year because it did not cut deeply enough for him.
On nearly every recent critical vote where House Speaker John Boehner struggled to win support from his party, Amash voted no: A landmark deal to raise the debt limit and institute spending controls last year, a payroll tax cut extension, a measure to keep student loan rates from rising, and a highway bill to keep road construction from grinding to a halt.
Read the rest here.
I don't know about you all, but I want Justin Amash sent back to DC and the comment section needs help.
