Yesterday the House majority kept a major campaign promise and passed a repeal of Obamacare. Of course the vote went along party lines, with the exception of 3 brave Democrats.
I would like to think Dan Boren of Oklahoma, Mike Ross of Arkansas and Mike McIntyre of North Carolina.
In fact I learned that Rep. Dan Boren made a statement before the elections in 2008 that I would like to thank him for : “Calling him “the most liberal senator” in Congress, Democratic Rep. Dan Boren of Oklahoma told the Associated Press on Tuesday that he won’t endorse the presumptive Democratic nominee.”
These 3 give me hope that the Democratic party may survive the attempted take over by progressives. The GOP is going through it’s cleansing now, I hope the DNC follows suit in 2012.
