The unkindest cut — Ron Kind votes for war money
Another cave-in by House Dems. Another $162-billion for war.
At least 151 Dems voted against it, even if it was a token gesture and they knew the bill would pass.
Wisconsin’s Ron Kind was one of 80 Democrats who voted yes. (The number keeps shrinking; last time it was 85.)
Even Dave Obey and Nancy Pelosi, who cut the deal, didn’t vote for it.
What is Ron Kind thinking? Perhaps we should all call him and ask.
