Shame on my fellow Republicans. I have to say I am really sorry to see politics as usual. I am tired of political parties not doing what is right for the people because they are either Republican or Democrat. It seems the issues facing our country are not important anymore - only to vote how your fellow party members tell you to vote.
I say to Rep. Greg Smith, I wish we had more politicians like you. Thank you for not being afraid to step away from your party and vote to help the people.
My hats off to you for taking a stand on your principles!!
