Vote how we say, or else!

As if the Republican Party weren’t in enough trouble, now the party is starting to punish representatives who don’t vote the way the party wants them to.

  • The National Republican party just unveiled its new fundraising program for the 2010 elections that will hold members accountable for their votes if they expect any reelection campaign money from the party (and in typical doublespeak, they call it the “Patriot” program).
  • On Monday, Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele announced on TV that he was open to primary challenges to the three Republican senators who voted in favor of Obama’s stimulus package, calling it “retribution”.
  • And on Sunday, the California Republican Party voted to withhold 2010 campaign funds from the six GOP legislators who voted for Governor Schwarzenegger’s compromise budget last week (and remember, Arnold is a Republican!)
