Both Feinstein and Boxer voted "Yes" to fund Obama's newest war in the ME

Read 'em and weep:

This is who voted "No." Boxer and Feinstein names are conspicuously absent.

Baldwin (D-WI)
Barrasso (R-WY)
Begich (D-AK)
Brown (D-OH)
Coburn (R-OK)
Crapo (R-ID)
Cruz (R-TX)
Enzi (R-WY)
Gillibrand (D-NY)
Heller (R-NV)
Leahy (D-VT)
Lee (R-UT)
Manchin (D-WV)
Markey (D-MA)
Moran (R-KS)
Murphy (D-CT)
Paul (R-KY)
Risch (R-ID)
Roberts (R-KS)
Sanders (I-VT)
Sessions (R-AL)
Warren (D-MA)

Feinstein, I would expect nothing less, but Boxer? I am VERY disappointed. I really would not like to think it's because she's up in 2016 and is doing it for political reasons.

1. Seems like I read Boxer was not fund raising for 2016 and may not run again

Which makes a "yes" vote even harder to explain.

Feinstein of course will make a few more millions of dollars from the deal.

BTW, that is sure an eclectic collection of "no" votes.

2. Ah, you're right.

I remember reading that now. I've been taking pain meds and I swear it's affecting my memory. Couldn't possibly be age-related.

VERY difficult to understand the reason.

I'm glad to see Warren and Sanders both voted "no."

3. We have not had the briefing on ISIS, Congress has, in view of the agressive nature of ISIS

the YES voters here have proven they understand the problem, the nay voters, who knows.

5. I wonder what the repukes' rationale was for voting No

 

except for the Rug Doctor, who is a committed isolationist.

6. I'm weeping.

 

No surprise about DiFi, but I would have expected better from Boxer.

Senator Boxer is a big supporter of Obama. She is likely not running for re-election, so maybe she decided to support Obama in this since she won't have to worry about voter response.

7. This is part of the email response I got from DiFi's office:

"I understand that you have concerns regarding the possibility of sending U.S. military service members back to Iraq or into Syria. While I understand and share your concerns, I believe that we must confront ISIL in Iraq before it further consolidates its power in the heart of the Middle East. I therefore strongly support President Obama's decision to directly intervene in Iraq to protect U.S. interests."

Got nothing from Boxer or Waters (my representative). I think this response is just another version of "fight 'em over there so we don't have to fight 'em over here".

War Hawk and she only shows up during campaigns...and barely then.
