Following up on the U.N. condemnation of Sudan's war against civilians in Darfur, and on a couple of posts (here and here) concerning Ron Paul's opposition to doing virtually anything to help those poor souls, I checked out my congressman's record. Oy, vey... He got a "D".
He voted AGAINST the Funding amendment for protection and AGAINST humanitarian aid. In case anyone believes this is an ideological issue, and that I, as a Democrat, am expressing some bias against Rep. Fossella, you should know that such other raving liberals as Senators Brownback and McCain voted FOR these amendments. And...President Bush supported and signed them.
What's up with that, Rep. Fossella? I would really like to know.
