Barton attacked for his 'shakedown' comments - by Republicans!

From thehill.com,

 

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) heard an earful from GOP lawmakers upset with Barton’s remarks during a series of votes on the floor Thursday afternoon.

I don’t get it. When that embarrassment Grayson from Florida was accusing the GOP of wanting to kill people, during the ‘health care’ debate, I don’t remember the same vociferous anger from Rep. Miller and his cohorts.

Someone on that article that I linked to made the perfect comment,

Good to know that Reps. Jeff Miller (R-Fla.), Jo Bonner (R-Ala.) and Sue Myrick (R-N.C.) prefer tyranny over bad PR.

 

Just for the record, I live in Louisiana, about 45 miles from the really bad stuff, and my family’s business is going to be really affected by this. But Mr. Barton was right. This was nothing more than an unconstitutional shakedown. He had the guts to say it. And now we see what reward you get for courage in the GOP.

 

Vote the RINOs out, put people with principle and the guts to stand on that principle in office. THAT’S how we’ll get on the road to recovery as a nation.
