Notice you did not see one representative of THE PEOPLE in the above! This is a perfect example of why this guy has to leave. He does not represent the people at all. In prior communications with this joker he does not even have the decency to respond, however, I bet if I was a lobbyist of some fashion with $$$$$ involved he would certainly have time to lend an ear. What a disgrace. I want to vote again, waiting until 2012 is going to be hard on all of us!
Hot debate. What do you think? 14 16

Hopefully he will see the writing on the wall and chicken out like Byron did.

And he kept getting reelected… How, if he did not represent anyone?

Rather than showing up on TV every now and then to (falsely) claim he is some sort of deficit hawk, how about he actually makes a stand to reign in spending. Is he a deficit hawk or a pawn of the Democratic party? He has two choices – actually have some actions to back up his words or get thrown out with the rest of them in 2012. Kent – either have your actions back up your words or just shut up, sit in the back, and start looking for something else to do by winter 2012.

A coalition of farm groups has appealed to Conrad to stay on as Budget Committee chairman. The group says Conrad’s Budget Committee position helps ensure “fair and equitable treatment” of ag issues. Conrad says he’ll be able to influence the next federal farm bill from his current position as Budget Committee chairman.
This is code for: Stay where you are because we are counting on you to keep the billions of dollars of tax payer handouts…I mean government subsidies…. flowing to us farmers so we can remodel our lake cabins and keep our winter houses in Arizona.

There must be a better loan rate on the budget committee. Is he refinancing the beach house again??

Farming: The only business where you buy retail and sell wholesale.
In most other countries farming is subsidized by the government. Here we just loan them money that needs to be paid back with proceeds from the next crop.
