"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Sell Outs

The final vote on CAFTA was 217-215 in favor of the deal, the closest margin possible, as a tie vote would have prevented approval...
The Democrats who supported Bush's agenda faced little or no pressure from the White House. Nor did they show anything akin to courage or consistency. They simply voted with the White House because, either they agree with the president's misguided approach to global trade or they thought they could trade their votes for big contributions from the corporate interests that see the NAFTA/CAFTA model of free trade as an opportunity to improve business bottom lines at the expense of workers, the environment and communities in the U.S. and Latin America.
Meet the Democrats who voted in the interest of corporate welfare, and sold out the American people:

Melissa Bean of Illinois
Jim Cooper of Tennessee
Henry Cuellar of Texas
Norm Dicks of Washington
Ruben Hinojosa of Texas

William Jefferson of Louisiana
Jim Matheson of Utah
Gregory Meeks of New York
Dennis Moore of Kansas
Jim Moran of Virginia

Solomon Ortiz of Texas
Ike Skelton of Missouri
Vic Snyder of Arkansas
John Tanner of Tennessee
Edolphus Towns of New York

Remember who voted in your best interest, when you go to the polls in November of '06.
