  •  I'm not surprised some GOPers don't want to vote (9+ / 0-)

    Folks like Lugar, Snowe and Brown are worried if they (a) vote for the House bill it'll be used against them next fall in the general election or (b) vote against it the teabagger will crucify them in the primary election. Difficult choice.

    And, of course, McConnell is worried that if they are on record voting for a bill that guts popular programs, it'll be used to hammer them come November of next year.

    Wimps. Stand on your principles!
