MISSING IN ACTION
It's bad enough when your representatives vote for legislation that works directly against your best interests. It's a damn tragedy when Bush's god-awful budget could have been defeated by seven, count 'em, SEVEN votes, and rather than be in DC on the Floor casting your vote, you are MISSING IN ACTION (MIA).
My friend, Autocrat, at River City Mud Company, gave me the heads' up. To top it off, the MIA House member is a DLC Board Member and Blue Dog Dem as well. Read how they are tearing him (the House Member) a new one at http://rivercitymud.blogspot.com/.
How do you explain your votes to send people to debtor's prison and being MIA to prevent a budget that completes the process (of going to debtor's prison) for most Americans? That's treason...
