Another day....another vote with DeLay

While true moderates like Christopher Shays of Connecticut joined 14 other Republicans to vote against a federal budget that makes substantial cuts to Medicaid while giving huge tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans, according to this article, Sue chose to vote yesterday with the conservative wing of her party, which managed to pass the budget by a narrow vote of 214 to 211. How can Sue continue to describe herself as a moderate when she frequently votes with the most conservative members of her party like Tom DeLay? Good question.

Perhaps Sue needs to spend less time in her garden in Katonah and more time talking to some of the people in NY's 19th who depend on access to Medicaid. While she's at it, she might also want to talk to those of us in the district who don't depend on access to Medicaid for our health care, but who know that we'll eventually wind up paying the bill anyway via higher health insurance rates and higher state taxes.
