Say it isn’t so Steve. Please say it isn’t so.
Among those voting with Boehner were Reps. Steve Stockman (R-Tex.) and Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.), who just three weeks ago refused to support Boehner in the formal vote for House speaker. Later, after the measure easily amassed enough votes to pass, Stockman joined some other conservatives in switching his vote to “no” — a sign that he opposed the measure but was willing to support Boehner if his vote had been needed.
When I wrote below that I was anxious to see the roll call on this vote, I thought to myself that Stockman was sure to be one of the no votes. What a disappointment. And no, switching your vote to a “no” doesn’t count.
