If you’re looking for a one-page compendium on how Lynn Woolsey votes, separated by issue category, check out her On The Issues page. It was there for instance that I found out for the prior post about her vote against making the Bush tax cuts permanent in April of 2002. Find that under the heading, “Lynn Woolsey on Tax Reform.”
No voter will either always agree or always disagree with any given member of Congress. Some of Rep. Woolsey’s votes have cause me no alarm, and have even gotten my approval. Other votes she has cast on the House floor have made me see red and caused me to feel grave concern for the future of our nation. Doubtless the same can be said of any of you. In the end, we have to evaluate whether our incumbent would better serve us by continuing to go to Washington D.C. or by staying away from it.
Seeing that she made the following choices — among many others; only a few examples appear here –indicates that Rep. Woolsey isn’t in step with most Americans.
Even though Marin and Sonoma counties are quite liberal in comparison with many other areas of our nation, most people here don’t want their member of Congress doing things like refusing to take steps to enforce border security, preventing polling places from asking for ID when individuals come to cast their vote, refusing tax-break assistance to struggling small businesses, trying to control the Internet, voting to continue preferential policies on college campuses, being unwilling to legislate against the horrible partial birth abortion practice, or repeatedly voting for salary increases for themselves. Yet, Lynn Woolsey does all these things and more.
It is time for a CHANGE. Let’s vote Lynn Woolsey OUT.
