Three Cheers for Rep. Shuler

Let's hear it for Rep. Heath Schuler (D-NC) for speaking the truth about the chief architects of the grotesque Spendulous Bill. Wow, a politician who says what he means and means what he says. I feel like we've just come across the last remaining member of a previously thought extinct species.

From Politico today;

Pelosi, Reid have "failed," Shuler says
Rep. Heath Shuler (D-N.C) has further ingratiated himself with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — not — by declaring that Pelosi and Harry Reid "failed" the bipartisanship test on stimulus.

"In order for us to get the confidence of America, it has to be done in a bipartisan way," Shuler said in Raleigh following an economic forum, according to the AP.

"We have to have everyone — Democrats and Republicans standing on the stage with the administration — saying, 'We got something done that was efficient, stimulative and timely.'"

Here's the kicker: "I truly feel that's where maybe House leadership and Senate leadership have really failed."

Shuler, rumored to be mulling a '10 Senate run, was one of 11 House Democrats to vote "no" on the stimulus and was already deep in Pelosi's doghouse. Now he'll have to build a Harry Reid wing.

I love you because you are funny! That is great and I think people need to put their House members on the list of calls to make even though the bill has already left them. They all need to know that we do not approve. I don't want any of them to wonder when they think of H.R.1 if they voted the right way. I want them to know what their constituents thought and what they think of them now. Personally I hope the 2010 elections are riddled with Libertarians. The cesspool of bureaucracy in Washington just plain needs to be cleaned out and both parties need to know they are not the only game in town and we DO have the right to fire them! I am tired of having them eat dinner to get dessert afterwards when they have been misbehaving all day long. Here is to hoping the American people hold them accountable for all of their votes this year, not just the last 10 before their election!

Right on, Rani! I will certainly use this blog space to remind everyone of the audacity of all of these politicians' votes, and how it has impacted our lives come 2010.

I e-mailed each blue dog Democrat & thanked them for voting against HB1 and asked them to do the same to the compromise bill tomorrow!
