What a joke

"As part of the Republican team, we’re fighting for common sense conservative reforms that cut wasteful spending, create jobs and revitalize this great nation,” Jones said. Walter Jones votes against the Republican party more than any other Republican in Congress! He votes with Republicans less than 72% of the time. Even Ron Paul votes with the party more than Jones and he's really a Libertarian. The word is that Jones threatened to cry to the party leadership about Cantor's donation. Cantor endorsed him to make amends. Jones does not support his own party on key issues. He voted against cut, cap, and balance. Cut spending to 2008 levels, cap spending at 18% of GDP, and require a balanced budget. He voted against the Republican budget twice. He voted against The Veterans Opportunity to Work Act. So how is that working to cut spending, create jobs, and revitalize the nation.
