NO! He Didn’t!

So, Walt Minnick voted FOR the Lilly Ledbetter Equal Pay Act, but AGAINST the Paycheck Fairness Act.  Can you explain THAT one?  Do you understand what the act is about?  I do.  You can read up a bit here.

What the fuck, Walt?  You spit in the face of the women who voted for you, who worked to get you into office?  I promise you – THIS is the kind of stuff I remember and keep in a file called NEVER FORGET.

Howie – Down With Tyranny on the votes today.

Before the vote, the Republicans tried to use a parliamentary maneuver to kill the bill. It was soundly defeated 240-178. Interestingly 9 reactionary fake Democrats strolled across the aisle to vote with the GOP on this, knowing full well that these kinds of procedural votes don’t get held against you when you go begging to labor unions for money at election time:

Bobby Bright (AL)
Chris Carney (Blue Dog-PA)

Travis Childers (MS)
Jim Marshall (Blue Dog-GA)
Jim Matheson (Blue Dog-UT)

Walt Minnick (ID)
Harry Mitchell (AZ)
Heath Shuler (Blue Dog-NC)
Gene Taylor (Blue Dog-MS)
