So Much for Civility

Ever since the shooting in Tucson, the left and the media have been calling for a more civil discourse.  I must have missed the memo where comparing Republicans to Joseph Goebbels and the Nazis is considered "civil discourse" as Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) does here while debating the bill to repeal the health care reform bill.

The bill easily passed the House 245-189.  Speaking of the health care repeal bill, can you tell me what the following list of Congressmen have in common?
  • Ben Chandler (D-KY)
  • Collin Peterson (D-MN)
  • Dan Lipinski (D-IL)
  • Heath Shuler (D-NC)
  • Jason Altmire (D-PA)
  • Jim Matheson (D-UT)
  • John Barrow (D-GA)
  • Larry Kissell (D-NC)
  • Stephen Lynch (D-MA)
  • Tim Holden (D-PA)
Besides the fact that all of these Congressman have a "D" after their name, all are members of the House that voted against the original health care reform bill, and they voted against the repeal bill.  If the original bill was so bad that you felt compelled to vote against it, what has changed that now makes you vote to keep the bill in place?  Doesn't seem logical to me.
