After Cao voted yea, baby Cantor stormed out per Huff Post
"After several minutes, Cao cast a yes vote from his seat, making the bill bipartisan. Reps. Jim Oberstar (D-Minn.) and Mike Honda (D-Calif.) waded into the Republican side of the aisle to get to Cao, rub his shoulders and slap him on the back.

Cantor stormed out as the Democrats applauded their defector."

9. Domino effect!
If our first Vietnamese Republican congressman gives in to socialism, the rest of the GOP will crumble.

Then even Republicans will believe that government can promote the general welfare.

:scared:

13. He should, especially considering his district. If he hadn't voted yes, he would have been toast...
...in 2010. I'm sure that was a factor.

I've heard him speak on the teevee. Seems too nice to be a repug.

14. How interesting that it would be Cao that was the lone defector. Cao replaced the ultra-corrupt
Jefferson.

Remember, Rep Jefferson was the one that was caught taking bribes, notably having thousands of dollars, in $10,000 increments, socked away in his freezer.

Cao showed he voted his principles, instead of his wallet or campaign coffer.
