Pushing it over the edge...
The vote was so close because 13 Republicans, including our neighbor to the north, Rep. John Sweeney (NY-20), who's not exactly known as a warm and fuzzy guy, decided to side with sanity. But not Sue. Indeed, as Hotline Online reported, Sue cast the vote that pushed it over the edge. That's right: she was vote #216.
So despite her photo ops and useless press releases touting her pro-education stance, thousands of college students in this district -- and every other district -- will now have to fork over more money to pay for college. If you live in this district, be sure to send Sue a thank you note (or call). And be sure to send us the response. We love to post her useless responses. Heck, we may even hold a contest.
P.S. Take19 officially went public today. You can download our press release here.

this is the second time she cast a vote for these cuts. Wonder how much Delay/Abramoff dirty money she got to do their dirty work.
