  •  Sponsoring a bill is far from meaningless (0+ / 0-)

    I didn't say it was meaningless. It says he likes something enough to lend his name to it -- so, it's a step above just voting for something. But, if you're suggesting it puts real beef on the ribs....? To me, "beef" is being a main sponsor -- identifying a problem, and putting forward a solution. Being a co-sponsor isn't really very compelling evidence of real "beef". It's closer to one's voting record than you imply. Anybody can be a co-sponsor. It takes no effort, at all. Hell, you don't even have to read it -- just take the sponsor's word for it.
