    A Democrat for whom I worked to elect, is one of the Democrats who voted for H. R. 3.  Sigh.  The signs were there early.  A heavy dependence upon Steve Israel and DCCC campaign contributions in the 2012 cycle, being named a "No Labels" Congressional Problem solver in early January, and a reluctance to sign the Grayson-Takano "No Cuts" letter.

      ...without any help whatsoever from the DNC, DCCC, and DSCC, or what I like to call the "Blue Dog Slush Fund". Maybe then we'll get a bunch of progressives in Congress.
