Rep. McIntyre Crossed the Line

This is Congressman Mike McIntyre of the NC 7th District. He's one of the bluer blue dogs in the U.S. House.

He's a strong opponent of abortion rights, a strong supporter of teacher-led prayer in public schools, an opponent of more progressive taxing policies, and he voted against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the recently passed health-insurance reform bill. (A complete run-down of his legislative voting history can be reviewed here.)

Yesterday, Mr. McIntyre said that, if given the opportunity, he would vote to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.


That puts Mr. McIntyre slightly to the right of Virginia Foxx, who now sez she only wants to repeal "the most egregious parts of this bill" (Foxx was quoted in a W-S Journal editorial).

What do you say about a supposed Democrat who is more radical than Virginia Foxx? A supposed Democrat who would willingly knee-cap his own party and president?
