Not sure what list this is but here in PA Pat Toomey not only lied to us and voted for gun legislation, he co-sponsered the bill as one of the gang of 8! He will never again get my or my families vote. It is becoming all to clear that none of them can be trusted. You must show us by your actions, not words ,that you are the candidates that you say you are.

Big D April 22, 2013 at 10:16 am

Thanks for clearing up the article it originaly had Toomey voting no.

toto April 22, 2013 at 12:29 pm

I’m in PA also, Toomey HAS lied, NONE of these politicians can be trusted to do what their constituents want EVER, unless it benefits them DIrectly. Casey (D-PA), well he’s just Obama’s little lap dog and will NEVER vote against the party.

OhioPrepper April 22, 2013 at 1:34 pm

The gang of eight is working on immmigration, not gun control.

Big D April 22, 2013 at 4:09 pm

Gang of 8?…6?…10?…whatever they were called it was the same result. Speaking of to Mr Rubio?

Dustin April 22, 2013 at 9:58 am

Thanks for this post – I had to go to the source to sort it all out though… your repost seemed to get the formatting to where it was hard to make heads or tails of it.

Shades of Green April 22, 2013 at 10:01 am

I am not sure what bill you are talking about as it is not mentioned. If it was the one to expand background checks then didn’t that only get 6 nays? They needed 60 votes to get it in but only got 54. Please clarify for me so I know what bill you are referring to.
Thanks SOG

M.D. Creekmore April 22, 2013 at 10:09 am

Woops… sorry about that.

Manchin-Toomey Amendment No.715 to S.649

Buuurr in Ohio April 22, 2013 at 10:09 am

The list is messed up some of the names are in the wrong states. Mine is Brown and Portman (OH). Brown ( a piece of shiiieeeettt) I didn’t vote for said Yay, and Portman (R) said Nay. What do you expect from a state known for electing crooks, though?

OhioPrepper April 22, 2013 at 1:32 pm

Buuurr in Ohio,
“What do you expect from a state known for electing crooks, though?” Ohio my friend is not alone in this department. After all, we are talking in general about politicians.

Donna April 22, 2013 at 11:50 am

Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), voted yea, but I didn’t vote for her, Al Franken (D-MN) was absent–probably because my state is too much into guns and hunting so he did a no show to save face., didn’t vote for him either.

Hunker-Down April 22, 2013 at 12:24 pm

Wisconsin’s Tammy Baldwin voted for the bill.

She got into office because the Tea Party couldn’t get together and support a single candidate. The Tea Party factions need to realize what they have wrought, settle their differences and merge into an effective force.

SW April 22, 2013 at 1:05 pm

for once it seems like AR did something right.

Mike April 22, 2013 at 1:19 pm

I have already told both of my Colorado senators repeatedly that they do not represent my thoughts or concerns and that I will do everything I can to make sure they do not get reelected.
And IMHO Shame on McCain… he must have received some of that Bloomberg money.

Becky April 22, 2013 at 1:27 pm

Well Boxer did not disappoint the airheads that voted for her. She and the other “bag of wind”(Frankenstein), never disappoint the rest of those who “did not” vote for them. They stay the Party line…..sounds like old Russia does it not…….Welcome to Hel* in CA.

OhioPrepper April 22, 2013 at 1:37 pm

Frankenstein? I’d always heard it pronounced Feinswine.

Becky April 22, 2013 at 6:09 pm

Ohio Prepper;
She sort of fits both, does she not??? chuckle chuckle

Big D April 22, 2013 at 4:13 pm

At least you know what Boxer and Feinstein are about and how they will vote…the Tea Party got these republicans elected only to see them turn their backs on us. Don’t know what is worse a known enemy or someone you thought you could trust.

Becky April 22, 2013 at 6:04 pm

Big D;
They are not of the Republican party they are the other guys..or women…cough..cough. Excuse me I have a hair ball.

Gary in Bama April 22, 2013 at 1:29 pm

Both albama senators voted nay glad to see that.I wish we had a 3 party system. grid lock would be.Nice i feel safer when or guberment is unable to aprove laws, mandates or policy.

Big D April 22, 2013 at 4:19 pm

That is the way it was designed. Gridlock is how it was meant to work. Only when a large majority from both sides can agree and after at least a year of debate should a law be ratified.
Every law takes away from liberty and freedom.

Survivor April 22, 2013 at 2:20 pm

Senator coburn (R-OK) musta felt somer serious heat over this. I know I called his office and told him I would NEVER vote for someone who voted against the Constitution. Furthermore, I told him I would vote DEMOCRAT if he kept supporting this.
In the end both he and coburn (R-OK) voted correctly. That coburn jumped some guys butt at the town hall he presented. The guy asked why law abiding citizens were being subjected to this crap and coburn went off on him telling him this is the way it was going to be. Guess again, dork!!

Uncle Charlie April 22, 2013 at 3:30 pm

All four of my senators voted against it. Harry Read is 73 and now that he has been re-elected for his last term, he is coming out of the closet wanting to bad “hi-cap” magazines. The people of Nevada should start a recall petition.

Mike April 22, 2013 at 6:16 pm

Four Senators? You live in two states?

PGCPrepper April 22, 2013 at 6:38 pm


Hunker-Down April 22, 2013 at 10:31 pm

That’s democrap arithmetic.

PGCPrepper April 22, 2013 at 3:57 pm

Virginia is now a “purple” state” thanks to DC suburbs (NVA). Warner and Kaine are our Senators. Go us!

From a forgotten twitter source I saw today:

Islamic terrorists don’t “represent all Muslims.” However, every shooter represents all gun owners. Confused? I am too.

worrisome April 22, 2013 at 4:56 pm

I live in Kalifornia…………Our “representatives” have no better sense than to vote for that stupid bill. Glad some folks were smart enough to put it down. But no matter, it will all come about in this state anyway.

Becky April 22, 2013 at 6:08 pm

That is what bothers me, loss of our freedoms inch by inch, law by law does not matter if it unconstitutional. They just shove it down our throats anyway.

Patriot Dave April 22, 2013 at 5:26 pm

Get ready to start more phone calls and emails when the executive orders are illegally issued. We must convince this congress that powers they give up now will never be taken back.

arlene April 22, 2013 at 6:21 pm

Thanks MD I shared this with many folks. Arlene

FarmerKin April 22, 2013 at 10:26 pm

Florida was split. I just wrote to Rubio to thank him for his support of the second amendment. Also wrote to Nelson to let him know that he will not be getting my vote in the next election because of his vote in supporting this bill.

I think timely feedback is important.

Judging by the responses that I got to my emails to them, I knew Nelson would vote for it, but couldn’t tell for sure what Rubio was going to do.

MD, thank you for posting this information, you saved me from having to go find it.

PGCPrepper April 23, 2013 at 10:52 am

Baucus D-MT (nay) not running next year. Confirmed on twitter by CNN and others. Fix that vacancy properly MT!

PGCPrepper April 23, 2013 at 10:56 am

Wall Street Journal -
Breaking: Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus to retire; won’t run for re-election in 2014.

PGCPrepper April 23, 2013 at 11:09 am

FWIW, the democrats up for election in 2014 got help with their election with Obummer’s victory. They were elected or re-eleccted in 2008.

Most of the Republicans are in mostly solid red states except Collins from Maine, I’m sure.

And then there is whatever affect/effect Obamacare will have.

*Retiring in 2014

Oscar April 23, 2013 at 2:33 pm

Tom “Dung Heap” Harkin (IA) is retiring in 2014. Thank God!! What a total embarassment. I could say a few more things but my parents taught me if you can’t say something nice, say nothing. I may not be able to talk for months. lol.

Uncle Charlie April 23, 2013 at 5:42 pm

Mike: Yes, I live in two states (KY & GA) but I only vote in GA.

Linda April 23, 2013 at 7:18 pm

Sure am glad I’m living in Nevada and my husband is packing up our household goods in Hawaii.

Brenda April 24, 2013 at 5:52 pm

Thankfully both of our senators voted nay (GA). Chambliss announced that he would retire before they even voted.
