Maybe because he's a congressman and not a senator.
Only the senate has voted on it. Ron's son Rand voted against it.

Because he wasn't there that day. He did vote against HR 1540, which is the provision that everyone is upset over, right?
Vote On Passage: H.R. 1540
ETA: It's a good question, though. NDAA has to go through, but what matters is that he voted against the provision that is under scrutiny, and he was the only one from Texas to vote no out of their 32 representatives.
Interesting to note that almost all from Massachusetts voted no, while all of Alabama, Florida, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and all (except Ron Paul) from Texas voted aye. And one of only 6 Republicans that voted against it.edit on 27-12-2011 by Sek82 because: ETA
