A few days ago I wrote a diary on Senator Kerry’s long list of accepting PAC money from corporations . Today Mcjoan has a diary on the FISA bill.
She list 12 Senators who have vowed to support Senator Chris Dodd’s filibuster. Now I am very happy JK voted nay on this bill, but why isn’t the Senator taking a stand and supporting Dodd and Feingoldhttp://www.dailykos.com/story/2006/1…
Now I understand why Senator Rockefeller is voting for amnesty. You receive over $40,000.00 in legalized brib… I mean donations, you vote how the people who butter your bread. Or as in Senator Kerry’s case, snatch the PAC money from the Telecommunications PAC, vote nay on a bill you know won’t pass and walk away. But why is not JK shouting from the rafters that telecommications amnesty is wrong and is standing with the 12 other Senators supporting the filibuster.
We need Senators and congresspeople who support public finance of elections. WE need to find and vote for people who are going to support the majority of the people who vote for them. WE DO NOt need the Kerry’s and Rockefellers, et al who are going to support the richest 1 percent.
That is why I am supporting Ed O’Reilly, progressive democrat for Senate.
The post I wroteDiary
has a link to ALL of the PAC money JK collected.
