CHOCOLA: Thad Cochran has a liberal record in the U.S. Senate
Sen. Cochran has a liberal voting record. That’s a fact. Even the staunchest defenders of Cochran will never deny that Cochran has voted for the following things:
p He voted to create the Department of Education under Jimmy Carter in the 1970s.
p He voted for the 1990 income tax increase under President George H.W. Bush that broke Bush’s famous “read my lips, no new taxes” promise.
p He voted to fund ObamaCare and to raise the debt ceiling — he’s actually voted to raise the debt ceiling 20 times.
All of those are facts. Period. They are not in dispute.
