Coburn and Scott Punt on Debt Ceiling

On October 16, the House and Senate voted to fully open the federal government, funding Obamacare and abdicating their duties to responsibly manage the debt ceiling. Only 144 House Republicans opposed this embarrassingly one-sided “deal,” joined by 18 Senate Republicans. Of those 18 Republicans, two normally stalwart conservatives voted for cloture – which ended debate on the deal and guaranteed passage. They were Senators Tom Coburn (R-OK) and Tim Scott (R-SC). Scott spokesperson Greg Blair told Tea Party Patriots “Tim Scott voted against the deal to raise the debt ceiling.” No explanation was provided on Scott’s conflicting vote. ...

Tea party loyalists are still somewhat wary of Walker, though, because of past positions on immigration and government support for ethanol, a big issue in Iowa, site of the nation’s first caucus. In 2006, he ...
