99% of House joins 100% of Senate in Supporting Israel with HRes34
by $
Friday Jan 9th, 2009 7:37 PM
On January 9, 2009, one day after the fascist US Senate voted 100% to support US/Israel terrorism in Gaza with Senate Resolution 10, the House of Representatives, with House Resolution 34, voted 99% to support the same genocide with only 5 No votes. Democrat Barbara Lee did NOT vote No; she played around in the “Present” pool, inexcusable in the face of genocide perpetrated with $15 million a day from the American taxpayers.

The text of the resolution was written by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, AIPAC, a Zionist lobbying gang of filthy rich swine who claim to believe in the Jewish superstitution, and are just as much capitalist thugs as the Christian capitalists. House Resolution 34, with the same text as SRes10, may be found at
http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:H.RES.34:

THE SPONSORS ARE ALL WELL KNOWN "LIBERAL" DEMOCRATS AND THEIR REPUBLICAN FRIENDS, WHO CAN NOW SAFELY BE CALLED NAZIS, as the atrocities in the illegal attack on Gaza by US/Israel would certainly make Hitler proud. It was originally sponsored by House Speaker, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, and her co-sponsors, Democrats and Republicans together were:

Rep Ackerman, Gary L. [NY-5] - 1/8/2009
Rep Berman, Howard L. [CA-28] - 1/8/2009
Rep Boehner, John A. [OH-8] - 1/8/2009
Rep Burton, Dan [IN-5] - 1/8/2009
Rep Cantor, Eric [VA-7] - 1/8/2009
Rep Clyburn, James E. [SC-6] - 1/8/2009
Rep Hoyer, Steny H. [MD-5] - 1/8/2009
Rep Larson, John B. [CT-1] - 1/8/2009
Rep McCarthy, Kevin [CA-22] - 1/8/2009
Rep Pence, Mike [IN-6] - 1/8/2009
Rep Ros-Lehtinen, Ileana [FL-18] - 1/8/2009

Unlike the Senate voice vote, there was a Roll Call for this support of fascist genocide, Roll Call 10, found at:

http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2009/roll010.xml

The Yes vote was 222 Democrats and 168 Republicans; the No vote was 4 Democrats and 1 Republican; the Present vote was 22 Democrats and Not Voting were 8 Democrats and 8 Republicans.

IT IS AN INSULT TO VOTE PRESENT OR NOT VOTE AT ALL IN THE FACE OF GENOCIDE, ALL PERPETRATED WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS, AND THIS OUTRAGE HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR 61 YEARS, PERPETRATED 100% BY DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS AT ALL LEVELS OF OFFICE which is why you have to vote socialist or Green if you want peace in the Middle East.
