Smoke and mirrors...
Meanwhile, a second, but related vote that would have required screening of 100% of all cargo entering the U.S. -- as opposed to the less than 5% that is currently screened -- failed by a vote of 202 to 222. Wanna hazard a guess as to which way Sue voted? Wait for it....yep she voted against it, even though six decidedly more principled Republicans crossed party lines on this critical issue involving our national security.
Of course, that didn't stop Sue from saying this in her press release: "Its vital that we continue these efforts to address port security weaknesses and improve cargo screening measures both abroad and here at home."
Don't the people who live here in the 19th deserve something better than a Congresswoman who says one thing and votes something else?
