Default Roll Call: How they voted on debt-limit bill

House Roll Call: How they voted on debt-limit bill

Quote:
The 269-161 roll call Monday by which the House passed the compromise bill to raise the debt ceiling and prevent a government default.

A "yes" vote is a vote to pass the measure.

Voting yes were 95 Democrats and 174 Republicans.

Voting no were 95 Democrats and 66 Republicans.
Senate roll call....

Quote:
Just two hours before the president signed the measure, the Senate voted, 74-26, to pass the bill, which will raise the debt limit and reduce the deficit.

Of the 74 Senate supporters of the bill, 46 were Members of the Democratic Conference and 28 were Republicans. Six Democrats, 19 Republicans and Democratic-leaning Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.) voted against the deal.
101 Democrats (and the only admitted Socialist that caucuses with Democrats, Bernie Sanders) voted AGAINST the bill...

These are people that nurse puppies and help granny across the street...

85 Republicans voted AGAINST the bill...

These are terrorists, hostage takers, and un-American set out to destroy the country...

More DEMOCRATS voted AGAINST the bill than REPUBLICANS, but it's all the REPUBLICANS' fault...

Really?....REALLY?...

(Anticipating 6 degrees to Hitler)...

Do what? What is the Republican's fault? Other than tanking the economy in the first place, and refusing to raise revenues to cover their long term expenses, what is being blamed on the Republicans?

Do we have to keep going over this, republicans did raise revenues when they lowered the tax rate?

What they should have done at that time was QUIT ****ING SPENDING!

What is so hard to understand that we don't have a taxing problem in this country we have a spending problem.

Too bad the numbers didn't reflect that...

Of course.

We DO have a taxing problem because we are unwilling (and sometimes unable) to eliminate spending.

Please look up the Federal tax revenue numbers before continuing to embarass yourself.

The Obamacrats tax the rich scheme will still leave an annual deficit of more than $1 trillion. That is not a taxing problem it is a spending problem. We can cut spending. How did the republic survive for 150 years without the Federal entitlements safety net? Very well, thank you.

Historical Tables | The White House
first, 2001 much like 2009, can be blamed on the previous administration.
come to think of it, so can 2002 much like 2010.
...& so on...& so on...
but seriously, after a short downturn that resulted from the 9/11 attacks, the tax cuts brought us increased revenue to record levels for three consecutive years & were still at the $2.5 trillion level for another.
but look at the spending column & the problem is quite clear; especially when the economy contracted in 2009 & 2010.
yet, spending soared even higher --- that's irresponsible; regardless of the tax rates.


returning to clinton era (or the gingrich/kasich era) tax rates without returning to the spending of that same era would also be irresponsible

The numbers do not show that lower taxes = increased revenue.

Very well? Sure... People living and dying in the streets because the role of government was to sit back and watch.

How many times have those figures been posted here? To many to count, but you want to deny those facts because they don't fit your ultra liberal mantra of the dem memo of the day.

I don't remember reading any history that told us about massive deaths because the government didn't help anyone back in the day. Perhaps you could provide us all with those stats.

Sometimes you just look at a post and think why bother

Bull carp. Might have raised YOUR revenue. If you're an oil millionaire I guess it helped a lot.
