FRESHMAN REPUBLICANS JOIN PRESIDENT OBAMA OVER OBJECTION BY REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP TO CUT WASTE IN MILITARY BUDGET

"Strictly by the numbers, the vote was a bipartisan one, with 110 Republicans and 123 Democrats supporting cancellation of the funds, while 68 Democrats and 130 Republicans wanted to leave them in place."

This proves bipartisan can work when everyone has the interests of the people at heart.  Some of these freshman could find themselves in the leadership in two years if the current leadership continues to spend out of control. 

I hope President Obama can find something to give them as a sign of bipartisanship.  The freshman who stood for doing the right thing need to know Obama will work with them.
