    Barack Obama in the US Senate has a record of voting for pretty much every appropriations bill that has come before him. Here is a man that is for cutting spending in Washington, running about blaming the Republicans for the state of the economy, and what happens when a Emergency relief bill for home homeowners comes to the Senate? He doesn't "Vote" Why because he is too busy out their trying to convince you how much he cares. The fact is his record in the Senate is littered with "NV" or Not Voting for various reasons. The Low Income Energy Asssistance Funding Amendment? How do you think he voted on that one. well that would be a No. This from the guy who is out there, saying the ecomomy is bad and it's all the Republicans fault. Well let a bill come into the Senate to spend some money and you will get an Obama vote to be sure.

    10/26/2005 Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Funding Amendment
    HR 3010

    07/26/2008 Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Funding
    S 3186 NV NV is Not Voting

    02/26/2008 Health Care for Indigenous Peoples
    S 1200 NV

    02/07/2008 Economic Stimulus Plan
    HR 5140 NV

    12/14/2007 Farm, Nutrition, and Bioenergy Act of 2007 (Farm Bill)
    HR 2419 NV

    11/01/2007 Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2007 (CHIP)
    HR 3963 NV

    09/27/2007 State Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Reauthorization
    HR 976 NV

    I can go on and on, what you see is a terrible record in the Senate of someone who says one thing and does something else.

    And he accomplished all that NOTHING in just 143 days... the most liberal voting LIBERAL in the senate.

    No wonder the looney leftie douche bags here can't lick his ass long enough. He's just as worthless as they are.

    Tell me, Pale, what is wrong with those bills?

    Please be specific, otherwise we might be inclined to think you don't really understand why you object to Obama voting on them, and are just objecting to them because he voted for them.

    10/27/05 HR 3010 After School Funding Amendment Vote on a motion to waive the Budget Act in order to adopt an amendment that increases the funding by $51.9 million for after school programs run by the 21st century community learning centers and that decreases the funding by $51.9 million for salaries and expenses in the Department of Labor. now...wait for it.... McCain voted NO Obama voted YES


    GI Bills voted on 5/22/08 & 6/26/08 - John McCain NO VOTE...Obama YES votes


    8/2/07 HR 976: State Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) Reauthorization Vote to pass a bill that reauthorizes and expands the State Children's Health Insurance Program - McCain NO - Obama YES

    NV means he "didn't" vote on them, so hussein really, REALLY has a pathetic record of doing nothing.

    The whole point is hussein only has 143 days of experience of as a senator. It's my opinion that anyone thinking that makes him ready for the most powerful job on earth ought to have their head examined.

    That's all ya got, huh?

    For a moment I thought you might be interested in discussing the issues.

    Instead all you want to talk about meaningless crap the media keeps feeding you.

    Thanks anyway.

    Thanks for posting, didn't realize Mac voted against the socialist SCHIP program. Certainly a point in his favor.

    Well Silence, the point was not that McCain wasn't there to vote or that McCain was not there to vote. It's Obama out there representing McCain for being bad on the economy and for voting for Bush all the time.. The point is, his record does not bear out his words, Obama has a record of saying one thing and doing another. So when those appropriations bills come up there he is to vote for them. Think I already said that. So I appreciate your verifying my point for me. *smiles*
