Betty McCollum (D-MN) has recently filed bill H.R. 4391 “Promoting Human Rights by Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act.”
Does Congressman Capuano support this bill? Would he consider becoming a co-sponsor? (of the 17 co-sponsors currently listed, only Jim McGovern is from Massachusetts.) How about Ayanna Presley? Would she support such a bill? What would she do to get it passed?
Because I live in the 7th district, and there is competition between two progressives, there is at least the possiblity that the candidates will answer some of the above questions. That’s not a small thing.
Think of the unlucky souls in 4th district where the current representative, despite being a walking advertisement of the dangers of not smoking marijuana–how not smoking can turn you into a mumbling simpleton barely able to express a coherent thought-has no opposition.
