Rep. Nunes To Vote With ‘Lemmings’ On Latest Delay Obamacare Vote

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) told reporters on Monday he’ll vote for the “rule” and the GOP’s new continuing resolution, which would delay Obamacare by one year along with a measure that would strip subsidies for congressional staffers.

“I’m supporting the Speaker,” he said.

Earlier in the day Nunes called Republicans who voted along with the latest plan, which is likely to trigger a government shutdown, “lemmings.”

“I would say the leadership has been backed into a corner by the lemmings,” he said just hours earlier. “But I’d be hesitant to refer to them as lemmings because that’d be an insult to lemmings.”

Nunes reiterated Monday evening said he would also support a “clean” CR if it came up for a vote.”
