Let the purge begin: 2 MA Democrats vote with GOP on Syria Bill

It is not that either Bill Keating or Steve Lynch are worried about any nascent right flank in their district. They have safe seats. What they do possess is a strong grasp of national security and foreign policy issues. They are not ill-informed nor knee-jerk. What do they know that the rest of the one-party delegation fails to understand?

From the Herald:

Keating said the bill enhances security over the program to assist those fleeing Islamic State group violence.

The bill by a veto-proof 289-137 margin Thursday. As for Senators Warren and Markey, we can expect that the lightweights at the JFK library might just consider their indifference to security a Profile in Courage.  The irony is that the bill has some bi-partisan support which should perplex those who harp about reaching across the aisle.
