    of Democrats who've voted with the Republicans, Collin Peterson is on it!  Every damn time!

    As a Minnesotan, he makes me a Democrat, he makes me sick!

    •  Agreed. You just know that Peterson (5+ / 0-)

      is going to be on any such list.  People claim that he has to vote the way he does because otherwise his district would fall to the Republicans.  Only problem with that argument is that Peterson essentially is a republican, so what's the point.

        which is worth something. But, yeah, I doubt there is anyone in his district that thinks this bill is a good idea. There's a difference between voting your district and just being an ass.

    •  This, I believe, is the first time that (0+ / 0-)

      Ron Barber (D-AZ 1st) hasn't been on such a list. A refreshing change from an otherwise centre-right/right-wing voting record.
