No Bonus for YOU!

I've covered almost all of Jim Walsh's bad votes since his re-election, so I've gone back further to the 2003-2004 session. I wanted to first look for some votes where Jim Walsh could have changed the outcome, and I found this gem of disgrace:

Amendment sought to provide a $1,500 bonus to members of the armed forces who have served in Iraq or Afghanistan in fiscal year 2004.

Yep, Jim Walsh voted against giving our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan a bonus for their service. Had Jim not been toeing the Republican Party line as usual, this amendment would have passed instead of going down in defeat.
