Well, yesterday the U.S House Republican Majority that controls the purse strings voted to fund ObamaCare, thus keeping the Historic Scam in operation for another six months.
Representative Amash is Michigan's lone NO vote. Thank you, Sir.
No, I do not consider Rep. John "why read the bill" Conyers no vote as that most likely had to do with talks of cutting aid to those of his Communist friends who hold dear the Muslim Brotherhoods' sodomizing and murdering. Savages.

"I trust the American people, while Mark Schauer trusts big government."
Tim Walberg today announced he is running for the U.S. House of Representatives.
"The people of south central Michigan are hard working, entrepreneurial and care deeply for their community, but are struggling mightily due to excessive government spending, recent tax increases, and a big government that is squashing hope and economic opportunities," said Walberg
"I cannot sit idly while Congressman Schauer votes to raise taxes, spend trillions we don't have and bring the failed Granholm strategies he advanced in Michigan to Washington D.C. In contrast, I will fight for Michigan families by working to balance the budget, move America toward energy independence, and provide across-the-board tax relief to reward hard work and spur job creation. I trust the American people, while Mark Schauer trusts big government," Walberg concluded.
