77% OF DEMOCRATS VOTED AGAINST RULES OF ENGAGEMENT THAT WOULD PROTECT OUR TROOPS!!
77% of Democrats (and Ron Paul) Voted Against ROE That Protect Our Troops
Posted By Andrew Bostom On August 24, 2011
Florida Republican Congressman John Mica offered the following morally clear Amendment (5/25/2011—H.AMDT.318 (A018) Amends H.R.1540 ):
Amendment requires that the rules of engagement [ROE] allow any military service personnel assigned to duty in a designated hostile fire area to have rules of engagement that fully protect their right to proactively defend themselves from hostile actions.
The results? (tallied here ):
143 out of 185 Democrats present—77%—voted AGAINST this amendment; 217 out of 235 Republicans present—92%—voted FOR it.
As for the two Republicans in Congress running who are Presidential candidates, Michelle Bachmann voted for the amendment; Ron Paul against it.
Every “No” vote—the 142 Democrats AND the 18 Republicans—is undeserving of re-election. No exceptions.
