Profiles in Courage: Republican Senator Jim Bunning of Kentucky

Senator Jim Bunning (R-Ky) is the lone voice in the US Senate calling for no more business as usual. He has risen from relative obscurity (for a US Senator anyway) to the top Republican that Democrats love to hate.

Billions and billions of dollars slide through the US Senate on a procedure known as Unanimous Consent. These are normally bills that no one objects to, that are necessary for one reason or another, and they pass with no discussion and no actual roll call vote.

Senator Bunning does not object to the content of the bill. He simply wants the Senate to tell him how they plan to pay for it. After passing Pay-Go, a bill that requires the Senate to Pay as you Go, the Democrats are now using the Unanimous Consent maneuver to get around their own feel good legislation.

Somebody has to hold these Democrats accountable for the spending. Where are the budget cuts? Gone it seems.

Senator Bunning has the guts and courage to stand up for America and say “Enough!”.

    Since Bunning is not running for office again it frees him up to vote the correct way and not the popular way. This is a good reason for term limits.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
