Con. Mike McIntyre’s (D-Robeson) vote against the multi-trillion dollar spending spree was a good one, but his inability to let his constituents know clearly where he stands at any given point in time is still mysterious.
(WWAY) “I am looking forward to a more comprehensive solution being brought forth and together in a bipartisan fashion to stop all this excess government spending and to get our national debt under control,” McIntyre said. “I’m hoping that will occur in the next 60 to 90 days.” But in the meantime, McIntyre said he does not support the Senate’s plan his House colleagues adopted. ”It will add almost $4 trillion to the nation’s debt,” McIntyre said. “It delays spending cuts and does not provide for the comprehensive tax reform that can help our small businesses create job.”
Once again, lots of rhetoric, but nothing of detail. McIntyre won this year by just over 600 votes, he is officially a democrat, but his votes are often inconsistent with his party. He usually portrays that as being independent, but there isn’t a cohesive way to assert that either. Here’s hoping that we’ll eventually understand where McIntyre stands on how spending should be cut when he champions earmarks, how taxes should be reformed when he hasn’t put a single idea on the table and how we solve the problem when we, as citizens, have no idea where he stands until after he takes a vote.
