All true in my opinion. The question is not why they didnt vote for the bill. The question is are they hypocritical for courting people's grief when they would not support the families in a meaningful way.
I won't go so far as to call it hypocritical, but it's definitely distasteful for anyone to try and politicize a National Tragedy.
No one said the other side was doing it for the goodness of their heart. 155 republicans voted against it with 4 democrats as well.
How do they justify memorial and not life support? politics aside, is it hypocritical of the individual?
