Maybe I missed something. Are we arguing that House members who took a STAND directly representative of, and reflecting the will of the people they were elected to represent, have done something wrong? How have we allowed compromise, simply for the sake of compromise become the mechanism whereby Legislators gain and remain in office? How would tolerating higher taxes, even on a few rich guys, address the fact that our government is too big, spends too much, and involves itself in far too many areas where it has no right to be involved? You don't add more fuel to a fire that is already out of control. Clearly these folks have forgotten that the will of the people, should be the guidance in our governance.
