On First Day as Democrat, Specter Again Bucks His Party, Votes Against Budget

by Benjamin Domenech on 10:19 am April 30, 2009

Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) began his first full day as a Democrat since the early 1960s at a party-switching celebration hosted by President Obama and Vice President Biden. He ended it by casting another vote against Obama, opposing his budget as too authoritarian in the rules it establishes for the health-care debate later this year. Same Arlen Specter, different party label.
