Some familiar names here.

"A whopping 26 Republicans joined the Democrats in Congress to vote against an amendment to the DHS funding bill sponsored by Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN). That amendment aims to block funds for President Obama’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), largely believed to be the root cause of the border crisis last summer.

Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) was the first Republican to break ranks. “Ellmers is [the] first GOP no vote,” Politico’s Seung Min Kim Tweeted as the vote began.

The other Republicans who voted against the measure, which passed, are: Reps. Mark Amodei (R-NV), Mike Coffman (R-CO), Ryan Costello (R-PA), Carlos Curbelo (R-FL), Jeff Denham (R-CA), Charlie Dent (R-PA), Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), Bob Dold (R-IL), Chris Gibson (R-NY), Richard Hanna (R-NY), Joe Heck (R-NV), Crescent Hardy (R-NV), John Katko (R-NY), Tom MacArthur (R-NJ), Peter King (R-NY), Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ), Martha McSally (R-AZ), Pat Meehan (R-PA), Devin Nunes (R-CA), Dave Reichert (R-WA), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chris Smith (R-NJ), Fred Upton (R-MI), and David Valadao (R-CA)."

The rest of the piece focuses primarily on Ellmers because she has become a public symbol for GOP dissidence on this issue and once had a loud and disagreeable confrontation with Laura Ingraham over it. In any case she is but one of 26 turncoats.

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck...

We fought like Hell to get Martha McSally into office. In spite of numerous attempts by the Dems to cheat the vote, she won buy 167 votes, and this is how she repays us. Good first vote, Martha. (spit!)

CL, would you consider writing and asking her why she voted this way? Does it have something to do with her representing an AZ district? If she responds, perhaps you could post her explanation here.

I saw her interviewed on a talk show, may have been FNS, and based on that, I am not surprised at her vote....

I can give it a whirl. She is not my rep, but is in the neighboring district. I got burned in the 2010 redraw, and I now have a commie for a rep, and probably always will (until 2020).

For further clarification, McSally won the seat formerly held by Gabby Giffords, and is Tucson. It will be a very tough set to hold.

Long Island. He bends sometimes at the most unlikely (it seems) occasions.
