77% of Democrats and one Republican voted AGAINST Rules Of Engagement that would protect our troops

No surprise, Ron Paul voted AGAINST this amendment that would save lives.

H.Amdt. 318: An amendment numbered 38 printed in House… to H.R. 1540: National Defense Authorization Act… (Vote On Amendment)

Amendment requires that the rules of engagement [ROE] allow any military service personnel assigned to duty in a designated hostile fire area to have rules of engagement that fully protect their right to proactively defend themselves from hostile actions.

The results? (tallied here):

143 out of 185 Democrats present — 77% — voted against this amendment; 217 out of 235 Republicans present — 92% — voted for it. As for the two Republicans in Congress running who are Presidential candidates, Michele Bachmann voted for the amendment; Ron Paul against it. How did your representative vote?

Cartogram

Standard Projection

Cartograms give an equal area in an image to an equal number of votes by distorting the image. Senate vote cartograms are shown with each state stretched or shrunk so that the states each take up an equal area because each state has two votes. For House votes, it is each congressional district which is stretched or shrunk.
