Our esteemed Senator George Barker, representing the 39th Senate District which covers part of Prince William County, voted against the bi-partisan majority that passed SB 283 through the Senate today in another stunning example of a liberal politician wrapping themselves in the thin camouflage of “moderate” garb. Barker must think it’s a great idea to require Virginians to enter into contracts with private companies under threat of jail time, because that’s exactly the way he voted. I’m sure that will simply overjoy many of his constituents.
You just gotta love how when their on the campaign trail, candidates lead you to believe that they’ll act in one way and after they’re elected do just the opposite. Heck, a vote like this isn’t even consistent with the oath of office Senators take, which pledges them to uphold the constitution.
I’d encourage everyone to send a copy of the Bill of Rights to Senator Barker. Apparently he could use some remedial reading.
UPDATE: It’s worth noting that Chuck Colgan voted in favor of the 10th Amendment, while Toddy Puller voted against it. Both of these Senators represent portions of Prince William County as well. Many thanks to Chuck for listening to his constituents on this, and shame on Toddy Puller for ignoring them.
