Re: “Sens. Lincoln, Pryor to vote for Kagan UPDATE

Blanche Lincolns' voting record speaks for itself;

Arkansas residents had voted to prohibit same-sex marriage 74 to 26 percent... Lincoln voted against the federal Family Marriage Amendment.

In October 2008, Lincoln voted for the $700 billion bailout package that passed the Senate 74 to 25.

In February, she voted for President Barack Obama’s $787 billion stimulus plan that passed the Senate 60 to 38.

Yet in 2003 she and Pryor opposed President Bush’s $350 billion tax cut because they said it would "send the nation’s deficit soaring."!

Lincoln lobbied hard for her seat on the Finance Committee*. On the committee, she has worked to make the child care tax credit REFUNDABLE to people who pay no income tax.

In 2006 she voted against a bill that would make it illegal to take a minor across state lines to obtain an abortion without parental notification or consent.

Voted YES on continuing federal funds for declared "sanctuary cities". To create a reserve fund to ensure that Federal assistance does not go to sanctuary cities that ignore the immigration laws of the United States and create safe havens for illegal aliens and potential terrorists. This vote is a motion to table the amendment; voting YES would kill the amendment.

Voted YES on allowing illegal aliens to participate in Social Security.

Voted NO on eliminating the "Y" nonimmigrant guestworker program.The guest worker program provides that 400,000 people will be able to come in to assume jobs in our country per year--adding to the 12 million illegal immigrants already here.

She has repeatedly demonstrated she is NOT for the taxpaying citizens of Arkansas. She talks out of both sides of her mouth and needs to be shown the door.
