What a lying fat t urd.

She SPONSORED the bill. I wrote her for WEEKS before it was passed.


Good luck getting anything out of her office. She and Cardin are both useless; they care nothing for their constituents.

They won't investigate misconduct at federal agencies either; all they do is send the agency's statement with a letter that says, in entirety, "this is what they said. Sorry we couldn't help."

Contrary to her statement a Senator's responsibility is not to prevent a government shutdown. It is to represent the interests of her people.

The legislative process was not intended to streamline the passage of laws, but hinder it. By forcing drawn out discussion of issues, the theory was, the only laws passed would be those on which there was consensus, and which were in the people's interest.

A nything to justify staying in office. . .

No one ever finds out who writes these bills. They need to be held accountable.

Why do we need elected officials make our laws? Via the Internet couldn't we govern ourselves?
