Enemies of the People

Both of New Hampshire representatives in Congress made it clear today that placating the unconstitutional, authoritarian whims of Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, and Harry Reid is of greater importance to them than representing the People of New Hampshire.

The Hill reports:

Democrats shot down a Republican effort to force an up-or-down vote on the Senate healthcare bill on Thursday afternoon.

In a 222-203 vote, Democrats beat back a GOP resolution offered by Democrat-turned-Republican Rep. Parker Griffith (Ala.) that would have forced lawmakers to vote on the Senate healthcare bill separately from the series of fixes they hope to make to that legislation.

Roll call here.

In 2006, Carol Shea-Porter made a pledge to the voters in the first congressional district, vowing to "bring New Hampshire values to Washington".

Since when did arrogance, dishonesty, and a burning and insatiable need to piss on the will of the People become New Hampshire values?
