Chocola votes against stem cell bill

In case anyone heard about Yosemite Sam finally popping his veto cherry, now 6 years into his presidency, and started wondering about how our homefront reps voted, Count Chocola (R-Halliburton) voted a big fat no. This was on a bill to permit the allocation of federal monies to be used for expanding the number of embryonic stem cell "lines." As in, to improve the quality of the specimens and thus the research into a potentially life-changing and life-saving form of medicine.

And for all you naysayers out there, this bill specifies that only embryos already slated for destruction can be used, so your right-to-life issue with stem cells does not apply here. Chalk one more up to Chocola's near-perfect Bush shill voting record!

And speaking of Bush shill voting records, Randy Neugebauer (R-Lubbock) voted against it, too.
