Reichert’s ANWR Vote

Posted by on December 22 at 13:25 PM

On Monday, U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert voted for drilling in ANWR. But he was one of about 25 House Rs who helped kill ANWR drilling in the House Budget Bill just last month. Paper trails like this oughta haunt Reichert now.

To quote Goldy over at HorsesAss, what’s Reichert going to tell his constituents: “I voted against drilling in ANWR before I voted for it.” ?

For a member of Congress that got 1,600 phone calls in a week - he quickly forgot what his base was asking of him when leadership started arm twisting on the defense bill. However, his work on the budget was key to the ultimate win. Don't spank him too bad - we will need him again soon.
