Sixty Six who resisted “Sugar-coated Satan Sandwich” Debt Deal (Part 32)

Sixty Six who resisted “Sugar-coated Satan Sandwich” Debt Deal (Part 32)

This post today is a part of a series I am doing on the 66 Republican Tea Party favorites that resisted eating the “Sugar-coated Satan Sandwich” Debt Deal. Actually that name did not originate from a representative who agrees with the Tea Party, but from a liberal.

Rep. Emanuel Clever (D-Mo.) called the newly agreed-upon bipartisan compromise deal to raise the  debt limit “a sugar-coated satan sandwich.”

“This deal is a sugar-coated satan sandwich. If you lift the bun, you will not like what you see,” Clever tweeted on August 1, 2011.

Congressman Yoder Votes Against $2.4 Trillion Increase to National Debt

Congressman Yoder Votes Against $2.4 Trillion Increase to Our National Debt

“Today I voted against a $2.4 Trillion increase in our national debt.  I believe we missed an opportunity for historic spending reform in Washington and that we have once again passed our problems on to another day.  Although I commend our leaders for working out a temporary solution against choppy political waters, I could not join in an effort that did not solve the problems that got us in to this spot in the first place.  To borrow a phrase, I was not persuaded by the logic that Congress would gladly pay Tuesday for a hamburger today.  I look forward to many future efforts to join my colleagues on both sides of the aisle as we continue to work towards growing the economy, spurring job creation and fiscal reform that that will combat the national debt.”
