To start this is an email that I sent to Yoder last night:
Dear Honorable Representative Yoder,
The more that comes out on the details of the CR the more it "is a crock and it does stinketh".
If the Federal Government shuts down, so be it.
This is not the time for small ball, it is time for you guys to put on the big boy pants and actually make a difference.
I know that you will be pressed by Boehner and McCarthy to get on board but we have your back if you vote Nay. A Yea vote, not so much on having your back since this is a joke and Boehner got rolled. From the analysis that I have read the net reduction is really only 2 billion since it added in the previous reductions from the earlier CRs and the baseline for the reduction was from the insane budget that the Obama administration previously proposed. The deficit will continue to rise – how in the heck is that a cut?
Us "unwashed" out here are sick of this crap - do the right thing.
Frankly, I don't expect much out of Yoder. I had to put a bag over my head at the polls to vote for him and Brownback (Brownback at least gets half of the equation correct).
Unless they had a secret vote this isn't done yet since it needs to go back to the house, as amended, and some pressure from the constitutes might help - sadly I doubt it will make any difference.
