Ohio just got rid of Dennis Kucinich, but we’re still saddled with Sherrod Brown, one of the most extreme leftwingnuts in the Senate.
Jason Hart at Breitbart.com has a rundown of Brown’s gawd awful run in the Senate.
As we kick off 2012, we enter Sherrod Brown’s second decade in Congress. Senator Brown (D-OH) served 7 terms in the House – starting in 1993 – before his 2006 election to the Senate. I’m 28, and Yale graduate Sherrod Brown has been peddling his blue-collar class warfare elixir in Washington since I was in 4th grade.
Ranked as the leftmost senator in 2009 and 2010 by National Journal, Sherrod has a lifetime 7.77 rating from the American Conservative Union (ACU). What sort of 19-year voting history gives someone a record left of Dianne Feinstein and Harry Reid?
Here are some of the lowlights of Sherrod Brown’s first 6 years in Congress, accompanied by his ACU ratings:
- 1993: Sherrod voted for the Brady Bill, D.C. statehood, missile defense cuts, preventing employers from replacing strikers, and Clinton’s “Emergency Stimulus” spending and tax hike package. He opposed school choice funding and missed a debt ceiling vote. ACU Rating: 9.0
- 1994: Sherrod voted for the assault weapons ban, a $30 billion Omnibus Crime Bill jammed with pork, and a motion to kill the House Post Office ethics investigation. ACU Rating: 14.00
Brown joined his fellow mealy-mouthed Dems by comparing ObamaCare opponents to ‘segregationists’. His love affair with unions and big government, and his apoplectic fits over conservative/Tea Party values is legendary.
