Here is some pre-election pablum from a drowning Democrat party via The Progressive Pulse:
Four Republican members of North Carolina’s congressional delegation voted Thursday against a bill that would have provided up to $7.4 billion in aid to individuals sickened by the toxic dust from the collapse of the World Trade Center, almost nine years ago.
Rep. G.K. Butterfield, Rep. Bob Etheridge, Rep. Brad Miller, Rep. Walter Jones, Rep. David Price, Rep. Mike McIntyre, Rep. Larry Kissell, and Rep. Heath Shuler voted for the House bill that required a two-thirds vote for approval.
If the Pelosi and Company wanted this bill to pass ...
---Why did it require "a two-thirds vote for approval"?
---Why did the bill require us to spend "$7.4 BILLION in aid to individuals sickened by the toxic dust"?
The Democrats set this bill up to fail by forcing the minority of fiscal conservatives who are true to their word to vote against it due to the high price tag and there are enough fiscal conservatives with balls enough to cause this bill to fail given the super majority requirement.
Simple political chicanery prior to an election.
Only political tools like The Progressive Pulse, our Lame-Stream Media and the stupid believe this crap.
