Republicans Say They Oppose Debt Ceiling Increase After They Vote For It

Today, the House of Representatives passed H. J. Res. 77, a resolution that changes no law at all, but expresses disapproval of President Barack Obama’s increase of the debt ceiling. The resolution states, “Congress disapproves of the President’s exercise of authority to increase the debt limit”.

The odd thing is that, among those voting for this resolution against the debt ceiling increase are a huge number of Republican U.S. Representatives who, only a little over a month ago voted in favor of the debt ceiling increase.

They flip flopped on the issue, stating that they were for the increase of the debt ceiling before they were against it. Their names are:

  1. So my representative voted for the debt ceiling increase and is now against it. What a mess. I am going to have problems voting for Rich. It all depends on who runs against him.
