McIntyre is pulling our leg again -- on Obamacare. Here's the real story

Mike McIntyre

IT'S A BIRD, IT'S A PLANE, IT'S MIKE McINTYRE -- THE REPUBLICAN!

 McINTYRE VOTED MANY TIMES TO FUND OBAMACARE. NOW HE VOWS HE'LL VOTE AGAINST IT. WHO IS THIS GUY -- REALLY? 

Mike McIntyre might be a big liberal, but he knows how to play the political game.  He knows that Obama’s socialist policies don’t resonate with is conservative constituents.

To that end, he has made sure to vote against Obama on major initiatives during high profile votes.  But it’s on the more low-key votes that McIntyre surreptitiously sides with Obama’s big-government agenda.

Mike McIntyre realized that he could not be caught dead supporting Obamacare in public.  That’s why he made sure to vote for the Republican repeal bill in January, 2011.

What he won’t tell you is that he voted for a number of spending bills that funded Obamacare:
Spending Bills for FY 2012

  • “Minibus” appropriations bill, H.R. 2112 [roll call #857, 11/17/2011]
  • “Omnibus” appropriations bill, H.R. 2055 [roll call #941, 12/16/2011]
Spending Bills for FY 2011
  • Continuing Resolution, H.R. 1473 (Covers all 12 appropriations from April 15 through the end of the fiscal year, September 30, 2011) [roll call #268]
  • Continuing Resolution, H.R. 1363 (funded the government from  April 9, 2011-April 15, 2011) [roll calls #247 and #253]
  • Continuing Resolution, H.J.Res.44 (funded the government from March 5, 2011-March 18, 2011) [roll call #154]
  • Continuing Resolution, H.J.Res.101, (funded the government from Dec. 4, 2010-Dec. 18, 2010) [roll call #593]

You can’t fool all the people all the time, Mr. McIntyre.
