Mike Fitzpatrick Kicks the Can Down the Road

Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (R-8) has voted FOR the continuing resolution (joining Alyson Schwartz D-13 adn Charles Dent (R-15) that keeps the government running for an additional three weeks while cutting spending by $6 billion.

(Three Area US Reps Vote for $6Bln in Spending Cuts)

Fifty-four Republican House leaders voted against the CR. These patriots have decided enough is enough, and it’s time to do more than pass short-term fixes.

In addition, some hoped to use a vote for the CR  as leverage to defund of Obamacare (in case you missed it, those wily Dems stuck $105 billion into the health care bill to fund it–which is not the way things are supposed to work, but when has that ever stopped them?)  A vote for this CR was a missed chance to defund Obamacare.

One wonders why the House leadership (Boehner, Cantor, and McCarthy) supported the CR. Are they that fearful of a government shutdown?

A few who voted against the CR: Representatives Michele Bachmann, Steve King, Mike Pence, Alan West. Take note of these names, as they are who we need to look to for leadership.

There was debate before the election as to whether Mike Fitzpatrick was pandering to the Tea Party to get their votes, or whether he’d actually become more conservative.

This vote makes his intentions a little clearer. Sadly, they aren’t what we’d hoped.

Here’s the complete list of votes.

      Who cares? He’s not our congressman. (By the way, you sound like the president and other progressives, who keep harkening back to George Bush in an attempt to make themselves look good.)
      And, a note to all those reading this. Freedom Fighter consistently forgets to reveal that she was a Fitzpatrick Congressional Staffer in the past.
