9/11 Commission Recommendations - Walberg Says No



In their first piece of major legislation in the Democrats' 100 Hours, HR 1 was passed, which would implement the remaining suggestions of the 9/11 Commission.

Congressman Tim Walberg voted No. The bill passed 299-128, with 68 Republicans crossing over and joining the Democrats. Among them, Michigan Republican representatives Dave Camp (MI-04), Fred Upton (MI-06), Mike Rogers (MI-08), Candice Miller (MI-10), and Thaddeus McCotter (MI-11).

UPDATE: The first time through, I forgot to include Dave Camp as crossing over (corrected above). Also, Joe Knollenberg didn't vote, meaning only three Michigan Republicans-- Tim Walberg, Vern Ehlers, and Peter Hoekstra voted no.

News coverage:
The Washington Post
USA Today
CNN

I'll have more about the bill and Walberg's position later.

Lovely.
 
He voted NO on everything in Laning, what makes you think he would be any different in Washington?

He just re-inked his rubber stamp. It's going to be a long two years.
 
Indeed...the longest two yrs for us, but not for him as long as he has a paycheck!
