    • On December 01, 2010, by tigntink - Could you actually voice what your issue is with the bill itself and not some vague insult against Phil Hare? I don't know the guy or even what district he is in but when I see comments I expect to see actual information about the bill. You shouldn't hate a bill because someone you don't like voted on it. You like or dislike it based on its wording and what it does.

    • On November 30, 2010, by kevinmcc - I see Phil Hare voted on the bill. The scumbag was elected out of office, removes his email form, and is voting on lame duck bills we do not want. If the Democratic party keeps digging their hole deeper they may not get out.

    • On December 10, 2010, by kosmopolitisch - I am new to OpenCongress and I appreciate your reply. It's refreshing to have access to a resource that make government more transparent. And even more so, it's encouraging to know that there are individuals who still make choices based on facts and their values systems instead of on the party and personalities involved.
