I get the feeling John Carney is being had by these charlatans

Congressman John Carney
This morning, Rep. Jim Renacci, a Republican from Ohio, and I organized our first bipartisan policy meeting since the election. Our group — divided evenly among Democrats and Republicans — meets every other week to brainstorm legislation and try to find common ground. We had great turnout today and took the opportunity to hash out our priorities for the upcoming Congress. If you’re not familiar with the group, you can read about it in this short article from 2011.

The Partisan voting record of Renacci:

The percentage of partisan votes represented by this number is then shown. The numbers in each box divided by slashes as X | Y | Z for each year can therefore be read as “There were X number of votes in year X where at least 60, 70, 80, or 90 percent of the parties voted in opposing manners. Jim Renacci voted in Y of those votes, and voted with their party in Z of those votes.

Year 60% Party Line 70% Party Line 80% Party Line 90% Party Line
2012 121 | 120 | 119 | 99.2% 119 | 118 | 117 | 99.2% 112 | 111 | 110 | 99.1% 67 | 66 | 65 | 98.5%
2011 659 | 657 | 623 | 94.8% 611 | 609 | 587 | 96.4% 534 | 532 | 522 | 98.1% 297 | 295 | 292 | 99%
Average 97 97.8 98.6 98.75

A 99% partisan Republican? Keep looking Congressman. Your bipartisanship should be the kind that demands at least some small demonstration of good will by your Republican counterpart.

    I’m certain John’s office knows about these statistics, but you should email them the link anyway, Jason. Why he even bothers with this charade is frustrating.

    LOL… getting your butt kicked in an election clarifies one’s mind. John, stop cuddling up with these people and throw them an anchor.
