Voting Present

Republican Outrages
Today, during colloquy, Leader McCarthy said: “The gentleman can argue with me all day of things I vote ‘Yes’ and things I vote ‘No’ on.  The only time he'll ever see my vote up there for ‘Present’ is a quorum call.”

It seems he’s forgotten his vote on May 15, 2008, which was… drumroll, please… “PRESENT.”  It was not a quorum call or a non-binding resolution – it was a substantive bill to fund our troops. Next time, he ought to take a better look at his voting record.
