Republicans Switched Votes on Bills They Supported

Hypocrites in action! Since when have they worried about policy or process?

Republicans Switched Votes on Bills They Supported
April 6, 2021 at 7:49 am EDT By Taegan Goddard


“Twenty House Republicans switched from voting ‘yes’ last Congress to ‘no’ this year on Democrat-led bills dealing with issues such as gun sales, women’s rights and immigration,” Roll Call reports.

“The rise in GOP opposition may seem connected to the 2022 midterm elections, when House Democrats’ tenuous hold on power is at stake and Republican moderates may face heat in primaries. But in interviews and statements, the vote-switchers mostly cited policy and process, saying Democrats dropped GOP-backed provisions from some bills and declined to incorporate Republican input into others.”

“Only in one case did a Republican acknowledge changing his view.”

1. Just like when Obama was President...

"A democrat likes what we do! We got to oppose it for crass political stunts, even if we used to like it!"

3. Of course they did

That is who they are, petty and obnoxious. Then they turn around and accuse Democrats of not wanting to work with republicans.

6. Not new.

Bob Dole's heath care plan and George HW Bush's energy policy on carbon credits instantly became radical socialism as soon as Barack Obama endorsed them.

(According to my notes, Bill Maher said something like that back around 2012)
