A Good Day For Conservatives

This was a brutally intense day, but citizens held elected leaders feet to the fire and it resulted in ALL Republicans House members opposing this very bad stimulus bill…and even 11 reasonable Democrats were swayed to vote against it.

Well done!

My thanks to every Washington state citizen who used their voice to make a difference. The battle over the stimulus bill now shifts to the Senate where we will once again fight for what’s right.

It would be great if you would take a moment and thank the our stalwart Republicans - McMorris-Rodgers, Hastings, and Reichert - who dared to face the giant with their vote.

Cathy McMorris Rodgers - (202) 225-2006
Doc Hastings - (202) 225-5816
Dave Reichert - (202) 225-7761

Now this from Michelle Malkin:

I’ve been doing a lot of Republican-bashing the past few weeks. Watching the Republicans crumble on the Geithner and Holder nominations, swoon over The One’s congeniality, and display indecision over the stimulus hasn’t been easy on the stomach or the head.

But credit must be given where it is due. Today was a very good day for conservatism — and a good day for the party whose logo I’ve had to run upside-down for too long.

Thank you, GOP.

And this from FRC:

Although the stimulus bill passed this evening 244-188, the GOP did set in motion a new era of opposition, voting unanimously against a bill that would take government into the final frontiers of universal health care and federalized education. In the face of the most popular incoming President since JFK, Republicans stood together in statement of solidarity. We applaud them for showing real backbone against unprecedented government expansion.

[Thanks Michelle Malkin for the elephant picture!]
