How Did Republicans Vote This Week?

Here are a few of the latest Senate votes. I'm sure the 'liberal media' will do its job by informing the public about the following. Apparently TV "journalists" don't know how to read voting records.

Yeas: 44 - 43 Democrats and one Independent
Nays: 53 - 52 Republicans and Nelson (D-NE)
Not Voting: 3

Yeas: 95
Nays: 1 - Feingold (D-WI)
Not Voting: 4

Senate Amendment 2732 - To strengthen America's military, to repeal the extension of tax rates for capital gains and dividends, to reduce the deficit, and for other purposes.

Perhaps there wasn't time and space enough for these stories due to the extensive media coverage of Cindy Sheehan being escorted out of the House chamber with her anti-war t-shirt.

But to tell the truth, I wish this voting record stuff got more play as much as you do...

re: anti-war t-shirt. The liberal media strikes again:
CNN's Kyra Phillips characterized Cindy Sheehan as an "anti-war activist" while casting Beverly Young, wife of Rep. C.W. "Bill" Young (R-FL), as a "staunch advocate for the troops." Both women were removed from the visitor's gallery of the House of Representatives prior to the start of President Bush's State of the Union address for wearing T-shirts with political messages.

This is so depressing, but we need to know.

I'd post another response here, but the last two have been mysteriously deleted.

Anyone else having that problem?

Blogger had technical difficulties yesterday and last night. Everything should be working now.

I don't know why newspapers never got in the habit of printing congress votes along with daily stock quotes.
