Tea Party trio in the Senate holds firm against Tax Increase

From Eric Dondero:

Very few 'No' votes on the Senate floor for the tax hike bill. But three of note, all Tea Party Republicans: Senator Mike Lee of Utah, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, and Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky.

Michele Malkin Tweets:
The Republicans have given up the no tax increases mantle. They now stand for what exactly?
While Erik Erickson of RedState Tweets:
Tom Coburn, Ron Johnson, and Pat Toomey Should be Ashamed
You can see the full Senate roll call vote at Senate.gov. (Includes a few not voting for reasons of illness or retirement, DeMint, Kirk, or old age, Lautenberg of NJ).

Of note, of course, Tea Party Senator-elect Ted Cruz of Texas was not eligible to vote on the bill.

Cuing up for a nasty press release from our friends at the Libertarian Party bashing the Senate GOP, sans Lee, Rubio and Paul. Here it comes... One, two, three...

Toomey voting YES will get a sternly written email from me, which he will immediately ignore, then wonder why "the crab puffs are dry this morning, Muffy?"

Libertarians fear me.

A bar of soap fears you.

Rand Paul had an amendment to require search warrants instead of warrantless wiretapping. He got a massive 12 votes for the Bill of Rights.

The nation is being fucked by both parties.

A bar of soap is an inatimate object.

There is no such word as inatimate, you shit-eating animal.

Libertarians fear you like they fear hemorrhoids. And you can be excised, too. Get the inference?

Erich Domdero said...

Libertarians. Liberty for all! As long as you agree with us!

The Right Guy said...

Unfortunately you do not know what liberty is.

Eric Dondero said...

Hey Dumdero, you can have all the Liberty you could possibly want on this website, so long as you do one teensy weensy little thing...

HIT THE FUCKING TIP JAR!!!

Says "Donate" on the bottom righthand side.

We'll take a measly $10 bucks from ya. Whatever. JUST FUCKING DO IT!!!
