  •  It's pretty clear (0+ / 0-)

    what I was saying and what I was responding to:

    on an issue which is not adversely affecting his constituents.

    He is responsible for responding to the needs of his own constituents, but that is no excuse for not responding to the federation of states that he belongs to, as evidenced by the fact that those states cooperate and help each other and subsidize each other at times.

    •  He did with the 2 years of unemployment... (0+ / 0-)

      extension...now he feels based on balancing his constituents needs and desires with the rest of the country that the unemployment extension should not add to the deficit...

      Not that I agree...but given his constituents...not an unreasonable position to take...

      Obama - Change I still believe in
