a Southern man don't need him around anyhow...

U.S. Senate: Legislation & Records Home > Votes > Roll Call Vote

How is it that Senator David Vitter (R-LA), who works out of Lafayette and lives in Metairie, can not vote on Senate Amendment 1660, whose stated purpose is
"To establish a congressional commission to examine the Federal, State, and local response to the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf Region of the United States especially in the States of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and other areas impacted in the aftermath and make immediate corrective measures to improve such responses in the future.

How can he lack the balls to vote? How can he not cast a Yea vote? In what reality is this possible? Especially after releasing this lackluster PR statement:
For Immediate Release

Vitter Issues Statement on Hurricane Katrina

(Washington, D.C.) – U.S. Sen. David Vitter today issued the following statement from the Hurricane Command Center:

“While I am extremely grateful that the city of New Orleans didn’t take a direct hit from Hurricane Katrina, many, many families throughout southeast Louisiana have suffered major destruction. My heart and prayers go out to all of the families who have experienced catastrophic loss because of Hurricane Katrina.

“I would like to commend all of the local leaders who helped the people of Louisiana prepare for evacuation and who are working even now to prepare for recovery after the storm subsides. Working together, leaders at the federal, state and local levels, will help the families of Louisiana rebuild their homes and their lives.”

It's because he's gotta toe the party line -
Vote, vote, vote Senator
Vote dee party line
Vote, vote, vote Senator
Vote it all dee time.

Especially since he's a freshman senator -- he's gotta step up and show the rest of the assholes that he can take one for the team.

I would tend to agree, but people who vote republican -- and thus against their own interests -- never cease to amaze...
