Tim voted against contractor accountability...

I don't think this has been posted, if so, sorry...

In March, Tim voted against HR 1362, The Accountability in Contracting Act. Tim was 1 of 73 Republicans to vote "No". The total vote was 347-73 with 11 not voting. From my reading of the act, it was intended to put the stops to no-bid contracts and sole-source contracts, also would notify Congress of no bid contracts awarded to foriegn owned companies in countries sponsoring terrorism. Seems like the Congressman, who continues to loudly proclaim his disgust with corruption and waste would have voted for a bill that holds big companies (Halliburton?) accountable, huh? Heck, even McCotter voted for the bill!
