Protecting Jobs From Government Interference Act Passes House
Speaking of HR 2587, it turns out that it’s passed the House handily.
For the record, the 8 Democrats that voted Aye are:
- John Barrow (GA-12).
- Dan Boren (OK-2). He’s announced that he’s not running next year.
- Jim Cooper (TN-5).
- Henry Cuellar (TX-28).
- Jim Matheson (UT-2).
- Mike McIntyre (NC-7).
- Mike Ross (AR-4).
- Heath Shuler (NC-11).
Interesting, isn’t it, that all 8 of these come from fairly red states?
Now, the 7 Republicans that voted against it:
- Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8).
- Chris Gibson (NY-20).
- Michael Grimm (NY-13).
- Steven LaTourette (OH-14).
- Patrick Meehan (PA-7).
- David McKinley (WV-1).
- Don Young (AK-at large).
5 of the 7 appear to be from fairly blue states, at least as far as the last Presidential election goes. Let’s see if we can’t find primary opponents for these 7, shall we?
