Bi-Partisan? Hardly! 15% of Democrats Voted Against Pelosi’s House Obamacare … with One RINO Coa Vote
By the way, some words of wisdom and common sense to Democrats and Barack Obama regarding the partisan passage of the Pelosi health care bill that would have government take over the insurance industry, one so-called RINO vote does not a bi-partisan bill make.
A note to the Republican party and RNC Chairman Michael Steele, no you do not need turn coats like Louisiana Representative Joseph Coa. You are not special and you do not get to extort a party for your liberal support of Barack Obama on the government take over of health care. If you can’t back Republicans on the major issues, what good are you on any issue?
On ABCNews.com’s “Top Line” last week, Steele said of Republicans who support President Obama on health care or the stimulus bill: “So candidates who live in moderate to slightly liberal districts have got to walk a little bit carefully here, because you do not want to put yourself in a position where you’re crossing that line on conservative principles, fiscal principles, because we’ll come after you.”
Asked about those comments on CNN today, Cao laughed and said he “would like to remind” Steele that Republicans celebrated his election to Congress last year — in one of the most Democratic districts in the country — as a symbol of GOP diversity. Cao is the first Vietnamese-American member of Congress.
He also pointed out that, if Republicans want to win back control of the House, they’ll need to control seats in Democratic-leaning districts.
Maybe, the fact of the matter is that this diisctric needs to remain democratic. If you are not going to support the very party that funds your campaigns, then it is time to find a new party.
Coa’s vote came after several discussions with White House officials! Are you joking? So what did this WH promise you? What extra will the tax payers of America be paying for in a pork barrel project coming your way? He claims that he put his district needs over his party’s wishes. Well then Rep. Coa, you will understand then if your party puts their needs ahead of you then.
As Macsmind states, call House Minority leader Boehner and tell him to strip the traitor Joseph Coa of his committee memberships for siding with Dems on Obamacare. [P. (202) 225-4000 | F. (202) 225-5117]
Coa thinks that the Republican party needs RINO’s like him in order to win back Congress. How delusional could you be? Republicans need to go after seats like the areas where the 39 Democrats voted for the bill or areas where Democrats and moderates reside in places that voted for Mc Cain in 2008, yet voted for Obamacare over the weekend. The Republican party does not need individuals who will cave on the most important pieces of legislation that they oppose.
