The correct position was to vote against the resolution and defund such things as the Patient Protection and (Un)Affordable Care Act, aka “Obama Care”.  The correct position was to take a stand and vote to do the right thing.

Four of Oklahoma’s Republican delegation failed in this. (Choosing instead to plan for 2014 elections?)
