Roberts, Moran vote for bill avoiding fiscal cliff; Jenkins, Yoder, Pompeo, Huelskamp vote against it

The percentages of compromise were obviously much greater in the Democrat ranks than that of the Republicans. Radicals will always exist in any political faction. The people with (R) in front of their names just seem to gravitate there in significantly larger numbers. What is wrong with that picture?

Our House members have no concept of representative government void of partisan politics with a personal agendas. Kudos to Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran for voting to move the country forward...

Your comments are well taken. Huelskamp and Pompeo are obvious parts of the radical, far-right that are doing little to move the country forward. Their only concerns are which one will be better viewed as the preferred replacement for Pat Roberts when he retires. That's called job security with a big "R" in front...

Jerry Moran's vote is one I expected, and his comments prove his intent and his continuing service to a bipartisan agreement to best serve interests of the people of Kansas.

Pat Roberts, while voting in favor, tipped his hat with his comments. Roberts remains as a Bush loyalist who is posturing himself with a moderate vote to offset what will certainly be a rigid, partisan stance in future fiscal/budget negotiations.

Tim Huelskamp's vote came as no surprise. Huelskamp lacks a basic understanding of the concept of working together in a representative from of government. Huelskamp's radical, far-right, tea party type views do little to serve the United States and even less to serve the state of Kansas.

As for the rest, I don't vote in their districts, but they represent the typical "Red-State," "my way or the highway," radical conservatism that dominated Bush era politics.
