Continuing Resolution – Win or Loss?

The continuing resolution signed at the last minute will keep our government running until April 15th. Both sides are claiming victory and defeat. This is one of those times where you cannot please everyone but let’s look at the votes from our North Carolina representatives:

NC Representatives voting for the CR:

Renee Ellmers (R-2nd), Walter B. Jones Jr.(R-3rd), Virginia Foxx (R-5th), Howard Coble (R-6th), Mike McIntyre (D-7th), Larry Kissell (D-8th), Sue Myrick (R-9th), Patrick T. McHenry (R-10th), and Heath Shuler(D-11th).

NC Representatives voting against the CR:

G. K. Butterfield (D-1st), David E. Price(D-4th), Melvin L. Watt (D-12th), and Brad Miller (D-13th).

I find it strange that our most liberal (socialist) representatives voted against the resolution. Whatever happens over the next few weeks, one fact is clear. The politicalization of our military’s pay into a political issue will not be forgotten. This shows me the level of contempt the administration and the Democrats have for our soldiers.

This is perhaps the only time in memory that I agree with an action of David Price…

However, I’m absolutely certain that my reason for a vote against the CR is antithetic to any CongressCritter Pric() might offer.
