How does any person know what the Cap and Trade (or Tax as many of us believe)Bill contained if no one READ the darn thing? I am upset with Cuellar for his yes vote. I, too, emailed his office twice before the vote, pleading with him not to vote for this thing. The last 300 pages were slid into the box at 3 AM on the day of the vote---I watched the entire process that day. It was sickening to me--it made me feel like our representatives were not listening to their constituents (polls were revealing 20 to 1 against the bill) and were acting in the most unresponsible way possible. Pelosi stood there, blinking, and, as usual, babbled about "jobs, jobs, jobs!" There won't be any jobs, but government jobs, if this thing gets past the Senate. There's more to this than special interests, be they ag, health, energy, environmental--whatever. It was the whole package that we needed to be concerned about---and the House, in my opinion, dropped the ball miserably.
Would you allow a surgeon to operate on you if he had not thoroughly researched your history, x-rays, MRIs, CAT Scans, lab work, and LISTENED to you BEFORE he cut you open? I seriously doubt it. So, what's the difference between this surgical example and that of the clueless representatives?
When our country is led by those who fail to pursue due diligence, who sway with the political winds in order to be re-elected, then we, the people, must be the responsible ones--we need to get busy now, review how these representatives and senators are voting, and if they are not doing the job, use our most treasured weapon--our vote-- to really put change into action! As for Cuellar---the jury is still out for me. A lot depends on what he personally does with health care.
