This morning I read an editorial in the local paper imploring Congress to pass the inclusive version of the VAWA. Imagine my surprise to find the author is a Republican Congressman. So thank you Rep. Richard Hanna, maybe there is a tiny bit of common sense remaining in Congress. Since I will be part of your district next year, I truly hope so.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    is probably one of my favourite Republican Representatives. Don't get me wrong, I disagree with him on more than not, but he seems to genuinely want to do work and doesn't subscribe to most of his party's most extreme positions.

    If you're gonna be represented by a Republican, you could do a lot worse than him.

      I didn't vote for him, and I'm not sure where he stands on most issues, so I was glad to see this.

        But he voted against the PATRIOT Act, against defunding NPR and Planned Parenthood, and generally votes for LGBT rights and pro-choice positions.
