Buried way down in that article is this paragraph:
"...The handful of Republican backbenchers who spoke up agreed, and those included often-rebellious conservatives like Representatives Phil Gingrey of Georgia and Virginia Foxx of North Carolina...."
Congresswoman Foxx knows how to go along with the Big Boys to get along. At heart, she's always been a company man.
Definition of "backbencher": 1. Not a party leader; 2. Someone who exaggerates their actual power, influence, or importance, usually for nefarious purposes.
