Nay votes by Republicans on Dec. 1st and 2nd

Lost emailsThese NO votes by Republicans were cast on Dec. 1st and 2nd. One wonders if those who voted NO objected to the specific bill or were signalling general dissatisfaction. All three bills passed easily; no Democrat voted NO. These three votes are listed in chronological order.

Considered as unfinished business. H.R. 5629 — “To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to strengthen the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office, and for other purposes.”

On motion to suspend the rules and pass the bill, as amended Agreed to by the Yeas and Nays: (2/3 required): 374 – 11 (Roll no. 532).

Amash
Fleming
Foxx
Gohmert
Jones
Labrador
Massie
Stockman
Weber (TX)
Westmoreland
Yoho

Considered as unfinished business. H.R. 3572 — “To revise the boundaries of certain John H. Chafee Coastal Barrier Resources System units in North Carolina.”

On motion to suspend the rules and pass the bill, as amended Agreed to by the Yeas and Nays: (2/3 required): 410 – 7 (Roll no. 536).

Blackburn
Griffith (VA)
Mulvaney
Poe (TX)
Stockman
Weber (TX)
Williams

Considered as unfinished business. H.R. 2366 — “To require the Secretary of the Treasury to mint coins in commemoration of the centennial of World War I.”

On motion to suspend the rules and pass the bill, as amended Agreed to by the Yeas and Nays: (2/3 required): 418 – 3 (Roll no. 539).

Amash Broun (GA) Massie

Representatives Amash, Massie, Stockman and Weber opposed two of these three bills; no Representative opposed all three. That suggests that opposition was to a specific bill rather than a general revolt. For example, Amash et. al. may have objected to the cost of minting a commemorative coin. Rep. Amash often eventually explains his votes, so we may someday learn his reasons.

    Some things defy explanation. In the case of the GOP, however, I think the following pretty much explains the last 6 years.
