Would you be shocked to learn Toomey has sponsored or co-sponsored unrelated bills/amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act almost every time? I was able to find them all the way back to 2012, which I believe is the first year he'd have been able to vote on it. This isn't about him holding firm, consistent standards, despite what he may say.

Nope, I wouldn’t be shocked at all. The guy is a scumbag and I’ll be happy when he’s out of the Senate, however, this particular objection is legitimate.

Toomey votes with his own self interest. His objection isn’t legitimate, it’s convenient. Chances are if he voted against it, this would have affected him and his own finances personally.

It’s hypocritical as fuck. You don’t get to support him doing the right thing when he’s been doing the exact same wrong thing for the past 12 years.
