Country First?

Quick Hit --

When Senator John McCain was the Republican candidate for president he adopted the slogan of "Country First."  Unfortunately, he also grew fond of saying that then Candidate Obama put the Democratic Party ahead of our country.  Not so...  The voters didn't buy McCains crap.

Well, it is evident by her votes that Republican Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) puts her party loyalties first, above the needs of her congressional district in Michigan.  How else do we explain her votes on the stimulus bill and the fair wage act?

Does she want Michigan to fail?  Does she want the United States thrust into a deep and lingering economic depression?  She's rich and out of touch.......

Yep, she doesn't worry about re-election in a gerrymandered district without a strong Democratic opposition.  Miller has a ton of money on hand for herself and her very own PAC to enrich the campaign coffers of her Republican cronies.  She no doubt will end up with some cushy lobbyist job or made head of some Republican support group after this gig in Congress.

It is too bad for the folks in Michigan.  She doesn't seem to give a rat's ass about the poor, unemployed, and struggling folks back home.

Yep, what a crying shame.
