    But overall, something drastic needs to happen to even things in NC and all other states, that have massively changed their landscape due to Gerrymandering.
    OH, PA, CO, NC, FL, WI have all been screwed by Republican Legislature.

    Here is what Wikipedia says about Mike McIntyre:

    In 2008, McIntyre authored the Veterans Outreach Improvement Act.[6] The bill, which is designed to increase funding to veterans' programs, was passed by the House unanimously. He has also written legislation to help tobacco farmers receive government subsidies and buyouts. On September 29, 2008 he voted against the $700 billion bank bailout plan [7] He has indicated his opposition to the national Democratic party plans for a health care reform bill[8] and in March 2010, McIntyre voted against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. He said: "After we help jump start our economy, we should again turn our attention to health care reform – but with a clean slate."[9] McIntyre indicated his support for repeal on multiple occasions.[10][11] McIntyre was the only N.C. Democrat to vote against the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."[12] In January 2011, McIntyre was one of 3 Democrats to vote with the unified Republican caucus for the repeal of the recent health care reform law.[13] In 2011, he co-sponsored HR 3, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act,[14] The bill contained an exception for "forcible rape," which opponents criticized as potentially excluding drug-facilitated rape, date rape, and other forms of rape.[15] The bill also allowed an exception for minors who are victims of incest.[14] In July 2011, McIntyre was one of five Democrats to vote for the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act.[16]
