23 GOP Senators Vote for Violence Against the Constitution Act

The Senate voted today to reauthorize and expand the unconstitutional Violence Against Women Act (S.47). You can read our full analysis on the bill here.

This bill vitiates due process, interjects the federal government into local law enforcement issues, violates the rights of citizens charged for domestic violence crimes on Indian reservations, promotes the homosexual agenda, and expands wasteful programs that have little success in combating domestic violence.

If all the Democrats need to do is give a bill a mellifluous-sounding name and demagogue the issue in order to scare Republicans, we have already lost the battle.

Only 22 Republicans opposed the bill.

Remember this is a fiscal and social issue. We've got a serious problem when there is a consensus that something like domestic violence must be dealt with at a federal level.

Here are the 23 Republicans who have no respect for federalism, due process, and equal protection under the law:

  • Alexander, L. (TN)
  • Ayotte (NH)
  • Burr (NC)
  • Chambliss (GA)
  • Coats (IN)
  • Cochran (MS)
  • Collins, S. (ME)
  • Corker (TN)
  • Crapo (ID)
  • Fischer (NE)
  • Flake (AZ)
  • Heller (NV)
  • Hoeven (ND)
  • Isakson (GA)
  • Kirk (IL)
  • McCain (AZ)
  • Moran, Jerry (KS)
  • Murkowski, L. (AK)
  • Portman (OH)
  • Shelby (AL)
  • Toomey (PA)
  • Vitter (LA)
  • Wicker (MS)

I am not surprised. Mr. Burr is not the worst of RHINO's by any means, but he is still no where near conservative, I have to wonder what the payoff was? Personal satisfaction? Future campaign support? Quid pro quo? Some of the name on the list--McCain, for example--are to be expected, but others are surprising. I have concluded that perhaps most Republican Senators are in fact misrepresenting themselves. They are liberal in all but title.
