    You might find this interesting: Representative Brad Sherman explains:
    KLBJ 93.7 FM - Austin's Rock
    Senator Burgess of north Texas didn't like it either. The very fact that they let it get so bad deserves for them to voted out. :mad0071:

    They just taped it off of C-Span. So it's coming from the Horse's mouth. They just had the guts to Spread it. They just bailed out their cronies, up there not us. We are on our own.

    In an age of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.

    What would have happened if everyone voted what they believed in the first time? We'll never know. Many "nay" votes were for political purposes or to send a message as they thought there were enough voted to pass it without them.

    It's how Washington does things. Let your vote and your voice let your elected representatives know how you feel about it.

    The only thing I worry about Rick Noriega is that his stance on all issues is really vague. He has nothing on his website about gun control. Cornyn, on the other hand supports gun rights.

    Scott Jameson is a Libertarian who supports individual gun rights but he's a bit wishy-washy on other issues. Can someone explain this position to me?
    -Less federal funding for health coverage. (Aug 2008)
    -Supports universal mandatory health insurance. (Oct 2006)
    -Health care is not a federal responsibility. (Aug 2006)
    He wants less funding for health care and says it's not gov't responsibility, but he wants mandatory universal health care?
