Patrick Murphy Votes For Freedom, Justice, And the Philadelphian Way

14 Feb

First-term Congressman Patrick Murphy (D-PA) voted with his conscience against a terrible anti-American and anti-Philadelphia bill which passed in Congress(courtesy PWD):

On Wednesday, the House passed a resolution congratulating the New York Giants on winning this year’s Super Bowl “and completing one of the most remarkable postseason runs in professional sports history.”

The resolution passed by a vote of 412 to 1.

Murphy, a diehard Eagles fan who worked at Veterans Stadium as a security guard when he was 16, was the only House member to vote against it.

“As a former 700-level security guard and lifelong Eagles fan, I couldn’t, in good conscience, vote for the New York Giants,” Murphy said Thursday. “The only thing worse would have been a resolution honoring the Dallas Cowboys.”

The Giants shocked the sports world when they defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII on Feb. 3. The upset spoiled the Patriots’ quest to become the NFL’s first undefeated Super Bowl winner since the Miami Dolphins won the Super Bowl in 1972.

Thank you Patrick Murphy. He refused to cowtow to special interests and the New York Giants lobby and instead stood up for his principles. This man deserves to represent Bucks County, Pennsylvania. and the nation for years to come. I salute you good sir.
