McIntyre to Vote for S-CHIP

I just came across this headline: McIntyre To Vote For SCHIP Bill Will Not Support Presidential Veto. What shady source did I get my info? Well, McIntyre's website itself.

Now if only we could get my representative, Etheridge, to join the Coalition of the Sane (COTS), it'd be a great day.

Comments

Most excellent news.

Washington, D.C. – Congressman McIntyre stated, “As a long-time advocate for children for over 25 years, and as one who has consistently supported family health issues, I will not support President Bush’s veto of the SCHIP bill, and I will vote to override his veto. My objection to the method of funding for this bill and my support of North Carolina’s farmers and the economic well-being of our communities are well-known, but I have always supported the SCHIP program and will do what is necessary to preserve it for the sake of children and families in need. As Chairman of the Agriculture Subcommittee that oversees tobacco, I will also continue to do all that I can to support our farmers and our region’s economy. That commitment has not changed with this vote for our children.”

Let's hope that other NC reps follow suit.

Let me translate McIntyre's statement.....

I have always supported the SCHIP program and will do what is necessary to preserve it for the sake of children and families in need.

meaning....Oh, shit, if I don't vote for this people are gonna remember it. I've been able to confuse them on the Agriculture thingy and keep that $70Mil in subsidies coming to the corporate farmers in my district....and I've got 'em confused as to why we can't get COOL done...and I can blame the Iraq stuff on the Senate...and they've forgotten I voted for torture and to deny habeas and so on...but there are actually 398,952 children under age 18 in North Carolina below the poverty level according to the 2004 Census....and I made a BIG mistake.

My very own personal ass may be at risk here....maybe I'll listen to my constituents just this once.

SE NC Dems

Stan Bozarth

amen

Now, let's get Etheridge on board. But, I am afraid he may be too well entrenched with the statements he has already made. Maybe we remind him he's actually supporting Bush (28%) if he votes against S-CHIP.

Etheridege Contact...

After I saw this diary, I immediately check Etheridge's website and saw no news. I called his DC office and couldn't get an answer to my questions. At least they listened to my rant! I pressed them both on this bill plus the FISA bill that he also voted for in early August before going on vacation. This was my third call to them on FISA and 2nd on S-Chips. Even though neither is my Congressman, I don't hesitate to give them hell as a Democrat.

Just warms the cockles of my heart

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Marshall Adame! PLEASE HELP!

Does anyone have the ability to get in touch with Marshall NOW? There is a FRONT PAGE KOS diary about Walter Jones there. I've added Marshall's bio, but I would like Marshall to get into the fray.

Someone, anyone, contact Marshall.

This is a good opportunity.

North Carolina. Turning the South Blue!

I got in touch with Marshall.

It's all good.

It was cross posted on mydd

I made a comment about this, the short of it is certain Democrats and Rep Jones have had discussions for the past year about a switch. Jones is closer to switching than most realize. It had been understood that if Jones did not make the switch by the end of October both sides were going to wait until after the 2008 elections before resuming them and that was where this was headed but the death of Rep Davis, who was the ranking member of a sub committee which Jones is now the senior member puts a Jones switch this year back in play, though I would say in all liklihood Jones stays with the GOP for now, but talks will pick up after the election.

It would appear the KOS is endorsing Walter Jones

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I have read the posting carefully and it appears to me that KOS is endorsing Walter Jones.

I was very surprized to see that in that venue. Walter is about as conservative as they come, with the exception of his new found opposition to the war. He voted with the President on SCHP and that is about as Republican as one can get.

I considered weighing in on that posting, but, it is so out of place at DKOS that I feel it may have been a plant by the Walter Jones supporters to feel out the Blogs, so I decided not to dignify the posting by weighing into the fray there. If you really think I should post someting there, let me know. Perhaps my view on this posting is askewed and I should write something.

A Politician looks to the next election. A Statesman looks to the next generation.

It was not a plant.

It was authored by Kos.

I would weigh in if I were you. Please weigh in.

I told him what I thought

Which is not suitable for polite conversation.

I'm back.

Yay!

I've been over there - probably doing to much - responding to individual comments. Those folks will know Marshall's name, and have every opportunity to click on site.

Welcome back - I've missed you*.

I am sure that it is not by design, but.......

I am not able to make any comments on that particular article. I can log into KOS and comment on any other article, but am unable to log in comments on that article.

Gave you a rec

I'm nclefty over there, by the way. Doing my best to knock down the "liberal Jones" trope.

Well, I just went to weigh in over there myself.

but it looks like Karma works. If they thought they could get away with supporting Freedom Fries Jones, heh.

DailyKos is undergoing some maintenance right now.
It'll be back up just as soon as possible.
Thanks for your patience.

ICloud..You did more than weigh in!....You go Girl!!

Thank you.

When I read some of the support comments you make regarding my candidacy, I feel like I need to wake up tomorrow a better person than I am today.

Some people can make a difference, but everyone should try.

Marshall Adame
2014 U.S. Congress Candidate NC-03

We all should have that goal, Marshall.

I feel like I need to wake up tomorrow a better person than I am today.

And I didn't write - don't ever write - anything I don't mean. You ARE the best candidate for NC-03. Freedom Fries as a Democrat my fluffy white butt. I don't think so!

Folks - Please Rec

Here is a link to Marshall's post at Kos. Let the Big Orange Satan know that we already know who the next Democratic Congressman from NC-03 is going to be, and it isn't Freedom Fries Jones.
