Robert Hurt, D-VA(5), a.k.a. Douchey McBag, Votes to Fund ObamaCare

Mr. McBag voted with the feckless Republican majority to fund ObamaCare as part of the CR, the official name being H J Res 48. This included funding for ObamaCare, the unconstitutional health care law that the new Republican majority voted overwhelmingly to repeal.

Funding for ObamaCare is hidden in the ObamaCare law, and bypasses normal appropriations procedures. The house had the opportunity to begin killing the law. The "rules" argument against de-funding through the CR was excrement, to wit: From Ernest Istook's recent testimony, as quoted in the Washington times:

To de-fund Obamacare, it is insufficient simply to deny future funding. Until the full law can be repealed, at least the existing and advance appropriations need to be rescinded, just as the House last month voted to repeal billions of dollars from previous appropriations to 123 federal programs. An effort to restrict use of the funds appropriated within Obamacare was thwarted because the House did not waive the same point of order (House Rule XXI) as it waived to allow de-funding those 123 other programs. This was most unfortunate.

Mr. McBag would have done well to go against the House leadership, but he is now showing his RINO stripes. He voted for Boehner, a 20+ year veteran of big government republican party politics, to be Speaker. Real leadership was shown by Reps. Bachmann and King, not Boehner and Cantor. The Republican leadership in the House and their lackeys, are, for a lack of a better term, a bunch of gutless turds. They are not part of the Tea Party movement, but they reaped the benefits of the Tea Party voters that swept them into power.

Why would someone vote to repeal a law, and then vote to continue funding for that law? Why would someone run a campaign on a platform of fiscal responsibility, and then act in a fiscally irresponsible manner?

Bye-bye, Mr. Douchey McBag. May you follow in the footsteps of your predecessor, and become the second one-term congressman from Virginia since the 1800s. May you be primaried, and defeated. I will do my best to see that it is so.
