Do You Think This Politician Is Looking Out For You At The Health Care Summit?

Rangle is sitting at the summit today saying he is representing you and fighting the good fight. Or is he representing the people who paid for his cruise?

WASHINGTON – Rep. Charles Rangel, the most powerful tax-writing lawmaker in Congress and a 34-year veteran of Capitol Hill, knowingly accepted Caribbean trips from a corporation in violation of House rules, the House Ethics Committee ruled Thursday, The Associated Press has learned.

    Charlie Rangle would have been indicted months ago if Ms Nancy had not intervened and slowed down the investigation. He has done questionable things and should not be in the group.

    I think that at most, 2% of our Representatives and Senators are looking out for the people.

    Once elected, they go into "re-election mode" and say what they need to say to win. Not give the people the cold hard truth and tell them they need to "cut back here", they "can't have that" and so on...

    TO Ed:

    Sorry, the Democrat list like that one you posted is nearly twice as long...

    Apples and oranges.

    I agree that if he broke the rules, he should be punished. But that doesn't mean that he is wrong on every issue. And on the issue of health insurance reform, the Democrats are right more often than the Republicans...even Charlie Rangel.

    Rangel is also one of the biggest tax CHEATS in Congress.

    No, he is not representing me. Thank God he's not my state's Congressman.
