And yet my idiot Congresscritter voted for this deal claiming it was "for the troops."

And the Congresscritter wins as most of the voters are too ignorant concerning the details of the bill.  Good to see more Senators voicing their opposition against this bill, but I am afraid it is all window dressing.  If it comes down to an up or down vote, the left has the votes to pass. 

Interesting that the vast majority of the GOP Senators will vote no, while a significant majority of the GOP Representatives voted yes.
