CA-10 No Longer suffering the Blue Dog Vote

Congratulations to the many, many people in CA-10 who no longer have to suffer the Mis-Representation of a 'Blue-Dog' Congress Member.

It is a relief to not see your own representative listed in articles such as the one below on "Health INSURANCE Reform":

Congratulations for being such a strong and active district making every effort to "Hold your Congress Member Accountable"

Please post your own thoughts below as well.

How They Voted on Health Care Reform

March 22, 2010 - by Donny Shaw

As I reported last night, the House of Representative passed the final vote needed to send health care reform to President Obama to be signed into law. The bill was approved with a handful of votes to spare, even though no Republicans ended up voting in favor. Here’s a more detailed look at how lawmakers of the House voted.
(If you don’t know who your Representative in Congress is, go to the, and enter your zip to find out.)

The final vote was 219-212.
Every single Republican in the House voted “no.”
87% of the Democrats (219) voted “yes.”
34 Democrats voted “no,” 67% of which are members of the fiscally conservative Blue Dog Coalition.
A list of all the Democrats who voted “no” is below.
