8 ‘Republicans’ vote in favor of UN treaty granting ‘global rights’ that would infringe on U.S. sovereignty
They call themselves Republicans, but they really are just Democrats in Republicans clothing. In fact, it seems more and more Republicans are turning into Democrats before our very eyes as Weeper of the House John Boehner purged conservatives and libertarians from key House committees. Now, 8 so called ‘Republicans’ voted in favor of a UN treaty that would grant ’global rights’ to some, and infringe on U.S. sovereignty. The treaty needed 66 votes to be ratified in the Senate, and got a total of 61 with the 8 Republicans voting in favor, thankfully not enough to ratify. The so called ‘Republicans’ who voted in favor of the treaty included the usual suspects such as the Maine Twins Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe. Also outgoing RINOs Scott Brown and Dick Lugar voted in favor of the treaty. As usual, old crusty John McCain also decided to play ‘maverick’ and voted for it, along with Lisa Murkowski. Then you have two others who I found it odd to be voting for this. New Hampshire’s Kelly Ayotte and Wyoming’s John Barrasso. I guess I should have known better about those two also.
The treaty was supported by Obama and Bob Dole, so that should tell you all you need to know.
