Dems that need re-educating

by Duckman GR

George Miller, CA-7, has a bill, H.R.3763, with 171 co-sponsors, all Democrats. Some Dems are missing, for one reason or another, but this gang of 11 really stand out.

No Co-Sponsor Gulf Coast Wage Cut Repeal
Voted for Bakruptcy Bill
Voted for Estate Tax Repeal

Bean, Melissa L., Illinois, 8th
Bishop Jr., Sanford D., Georgia, 2nd
Boren, Dan, Oklahoma, 2nd
Boucher, Rick, Virginia, 9th
Cramer, Robert E., Alabama, 5th
Cuellar, Henry, Texas, 28th
Davis, Lincoln, Tennessee, 4th
Edwards, Chet, Texas, 17th
Gordon, Bart, Tennessee, 6th
McIntyre, Mike, North Carolina, 7th
Salazar, John T., Colorado, 3rd, brother of Ken, US Senator.

Miller's bill, which seeks to reinstate the application of the wage requirements of the Davis-Bacon Act to Federal contracts in areas affected by Hurricane Katrina is exactly what I'm talking about. Action that DEMONSTRATES values. And these people aren't helping the cause.

Josh Marshall is working this too, so maybe we can put some pressure on them to pony up to the bar.
