Why be a Dem?

These "Blue Dog" Dems really chap my ass. If you can't get yourself elected following your party's principles, why bother running as a Dem? That's right, it isn't about the principle, it's about the power:

The House's planned vote Wednesday to fully repeal Obamacare ultimately amounts to little more than political theater, given that House Republicans have made 30 previous attempts to repeal all or part of the law, all of which have gone nowhere in the Democrat-controlled Senate. But this week's vote does offer several politically vulnerable members a new chance to distinguish themselves on this hot-button issue.

Ahead of Wednesday's vote, at least two House Democrats have indicated plans to side with a majority of Republicans to reject portions of the law. Both face uncertain re-election odds.

...

If you're gonna vote like a Republican, you might as well be a Republican.

Great thanks to Tengrain for the link.

The only reason they can get away with it is because the Senate will wipe its ass with the bull, thank you Harry Reid.

Hello Fixer,

All the dogs are really "DemoCRAPS" They don't give a shit about the Democratic Party only the money train party. Euthanize them by voting them out of office. I apologize since the voting system is broken and it takes an act of God to remove these leeches.
