Conservative Ire Rains on 8 'Aye' Republicans
"In the wake of last week's landmark passage of the House climate bill, conservatives have focused their fury on the handful of Republicans who voted in favor of the sweeping legislation.
Conservative commentators are blasting the eight Republican 'aye' votes as betrayers of GOP principles and, perhaps more important, holding them accountable for the bill's seven-vote margin of passage, 219-212.
The eight Republicans are Mark Kirk of Illinois; Mike Castle of Delaware; Mary Bono Mack of California; Dave Reichert of Washington; John McHugh of New York; and Frank LoBiondo, Leonard Lance and Chris Smith of New Jersey."Source: NYTimes, 07/01/2009
