      This eventuality occurred to me already, and it would be a much better situation for an independent Congressperson to spearhead this effort. No partisanship.

      Anyway, go Massie! Lets face it, the establishment, the socialists, and the communists hate libertarians and fiscal conservatives more than anything. Many of the other partisan “battles” are Kabuki Theater. That hate will always be there. This stand will not change that one way or another.

      The establishment in Congress plays games all day long, every day.

      Yet when one Congressperson chooses to follow long established rules, the snowflakes break out in hysteria.

      History will judge them.

      Our boys are least popular during times of crisis.

      Where is Amash? I believe he only voted "present" in last weeks vote, so he won't be hung by the electorate. While Massie voted no.

      Massie & Paul are my two favorite representatives of course . I think Massie is missing some opportunity here by not telling everyone who will listen why he intends to vote no . Otherwise I am not sure he is really doing himself any favor in Ky. I would vote no too . I would have to . No way I could bring myself around to airline money .
