Rogue Democrats are Put on Notice!

There are 17 Democrats in the House of Representatives who routinely side with Republicans on issues that harm their constituents, as well as the Party and the American people. Bipartisanship is something we should strive for, but it's been sadly lacking, particular in this 112th "Freshman" Congress. For this rogue group to vote FOR holding Eric Holder, United States Attorney General in "contempt of Congress" is contemptuous. They also voted recently (7/31/12), again with the Republicans, for banning abortions in DC...even in cases of rape or incest. That's outrageous!

The NRA said they'd "score" their vote on the Holder contempt issue. They need to be made aware that we Democrats are also keeping score...after all, we voted them into office and if they don't understand that they are representing us, we can vote them out!

Nancy Pelosi is named only because I know she will make sure that our petition is delivered. This in no way indicts her as one of the rogue members. (We love Nancy.)

Here's a list of the Democratic Representatives who, apparently, no longer feel any allegiance to their Party nor to those of us who pay their salaries and benefits:

Curious that it's virtually the same group of 17. There were also several Democrats who abstained. 108 Abstained on the Eric Holder vote ~ unbelievable!!! We don't send you to Washington to "abstain" ~ we put our faith in you that you're there to represent our best interests...not lobbyists or your fear of backlash from "The Tea Party". You are put on notice that we are watching and actively scoring you....

      I see a trend of Republicans that cannot get into office switching to run as a democrat. Hidden agenda. Must be stopped!

      Just jump sides if you don't share our values! Faking it is rather objectionable!
