And 14 more voted “present”
A total of 100 Democrats either voted against or voted present on a House resolution denouncing the horrors of socialism and opposing the implementation of socialist policies in America.
The list appears below—sorted by state and including vote position. Since many GOUSA team members are from New England, I have highlighted the members from this six-state region.
Every Republican member voted for the resolution. Three were absent.
Every Connecticut member voted against the resolution. No word yet on when Connecticut plans to change its nickname from “The Constitution State” to “Workers of the World Unite!”
Three Massachusetts members – McGovern, Neal and Pressley voted against the resolution. Surprisingly Katherine Clark (D-Cambridge) voted for the resolution. One wonders if the Democratics Socialists of America are going to take back their endorsement of Clark.
Also voting against were Maine’s Pingree, Vermont’s Balint and Rhode Island’s Cicilline.
Both New Hampshire Democrats voted for the resolution.
