In the below video Sen Kerry confronts Sen Rubio about quoting then Senators Obama and Biden from 2006 saying they would vote against raising the debt ceiling.
Sen Kerry indicated that since the vote was a forgone conclusion, that Obama's vote was symbolic and didn't matter.
Yes, Senator Kerry, they took a "principled" stand against their party when it didn't affect the outcome.
To be considered a principled person, however, you have to maintain that stand. What they really did was take a stand against the vote once it was a sure thing so as to secure their re-elections. It's a common thing. It's done all the time and it's one of the reasons that we voters are so disgusted by politicians.
If they'd believed what they said in 2006 they would not be opposed to what the "Tea Party" Republicans are attempting to do.
