Senator Jim Bunning goes rogue

The left is completely flipping out [see Memeorandum] over Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) holding up an emergency 30 day extension of unemployment benefits.  Why is Bunning holding up “the process”? Simple, he is trying to make the Democrats keep to their Pay-Go legislation.  Bunning wants the Democrats to use unspent money from the stimulus to pay for the extension.

Here is the funny part; Bunning is retiring. He has absolutely no one to answer to but himself. Sounds familiar?  It should, it is pretty much the same situation many Democrats are in as they watch their re-election chances go down the drain.   While Nancy may want these Democrats to vote for ObamaCare, she may instead find herself with a bunch of rogue Democrats.   I for one hope they all go rogue on Nancy, she has more than earned it.

If I am not mistaken, there is another tidbit hiding in this bill - reducing Medicare payments to doctors. Something that should be in the ObamaCare bill I would think.

Good for Sen.Bunning. Someone needs to hold this Congress to their own laws. I'm sick of Congress thinking they are above the law.
