341-48 for Obama's 5 Billion War Bill Without Debate

by $ Sunday, Dec. 19, 2010 at 12:55 PM

On 12/17/10, the day after supporting Democrat Obama's destruction of Social Security and continuation of tax cuts for the rich, the US Congress again joined Democrat Obama in attacking the workingclass by voting 341-48 for Obama's 5 Billion war bill without debate, all to make the rich richer.

On 12/17/10, the day after supporting Democrat Obama's destruction of Social Security and continuation of tax cuts for the rich, the US Congress again joined Democrat Obama in attacking the workingclass by voting 341-48 for Obama's 5 Billion war bill without debate, all to make the rich richer.

We cannot have guns and butter and funding blood for oil wars guarantees cuts in social services for the workingclass. The other excuse for cuts sure to come in 2011 is that there will be no money to pay for our needs, thanks to Obama's support of Bush's tax cuts for the rich and his destruction of Social Security. The Social Security tax will not be restored when it expires in a year as it will be election time and no politician expects to get re-elected by raising taxes.

The roll call vote, Roll Call 650, on HR 6523, may be found at

http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2010/roll650.xml

187 Democrats and 154 Republicans voted for war. San Francisco's rep, Democrat Pelosi, a Democrat, does not have to vote as she is the Speaker, but she is always pro-war and supports this bill, as she supported the destruction of Social Security of 12/16/10. The No votes were as follows:

Baldwin

Blumenauer

Campbell

Capuano

Chu

Clarke

Cohen

Conyers

DeFazio

The Democratic Party is finally finished. You have no excuse for voting for Obama again in 2012. If you want things to get better, you have to vote socialist or Green. See:
