  •  John Sweeney our wonderful Congressman (none)
    Also live in Sweeney's district.  Sent him an e-mail inquiring on his budget vote that cut Pell Grant funding.  Since I have a son in college this really affected our family.  Informed him that I would share his vote with other families in his district but surprise, surprise he didn't answer me.
    Was surprised that he voted against the gay marriage ammendant.  Sure his only reason for doing this is the desire to run against Hillary Clinton in 2006.  Which would be great as he would undoubtedly lose and we'd get rid of this bully.  Jerry Solomon, the guy he replaced was even worse.  He ranted and raved on the floor of congress that it was important for his wife to have an assault weapon to protect herself which didn't go over well with the people in the district.  He also got into a verbal altercation with Robert Kennedy, Jr about the right to allow people to have assault weapons.  Rather insensitive considering what happened to his father.  He had to step down because people in this heavily republican district said they won't vote for him for dog catcher.  But only because he voted against allocating money to it.
    •  FIxing America, one state at a time (none)
      Might as well start with Washington.

      Conservatives have made moderate Republicans an endangered species; I say we make them extinct.

      There's no reason for Republicans to hold positions of statewide authority with a Blue-leaning constituency.

      They can muster control of Congress and the White House using nothing but Red country going forward.

      I spent four years cajoling moderate Pubs, and at the end of the day, they joined in the catcalling and the demonization of Americans in order to play to the GOP in-crowd.

      Now they come around, letting us know that they're still our friends, but they've got an image to keep up.

      Eff that. They can go get kicked around by the 'beautiful people' until the latter get tired of it.

      Because we are shut of them, completely.

      Who's your daddy? Washington. :)
