You might want to use a source other than The Daily Caller if you want to preach to someone other than the right wing choir, just saying.....

That's hyperbole......I'm not sure we can really expect politicians to get past that. I am pro-life, I disagree with Booker on this subject BUT this doesn't bother me.

This bothers me.

It has a video at the left bottom of Cory Booker. In his own voice. The source is Cory Booker in his own words.

Another huge difference is in the amount of criminal behavior by Republican administrations versus Democrats.

Obama - 8yrs in office. 0 criminal indictments. 0 convictions. 0 prison sentences.

Bush, George W. - 8yrs in office. 16 criminal indictments. 16 convictions. 9 prison sentences.

Clinton - 8yrs in office. 2 criminal indictments. 1 conviction. 1 prison sentence.

Bush, George H. W. - 4yrs in office. 1 indictment. 1 conviction. 1 prison sentence.

Reagan - 8yrs in office. 26 criminal indictments. 16 convictions. 8 prison sentences.

Carter - 4yrs in office. 1 indictment. 0 convictions and 0 prison sentences.

Ford - 2 1/2 yrs in office. 1 indictment. 1 conviction. 1 prison sentence.

Nixon - 6yrs in office. 76 criminal indictments. 55 convictions. 15 prison sentences.

Johnson - 5yrs in office. 0 indictments. 0 convictions. 0 prison sentences.

Democrats had a total of 3 executive branch officials indicted with 1 conviction and 1 prison sentence.

Republicans have had a total of 120 criminal indictments of executive branch officials. 89 criminal convictions. 34 prison sentences.

Republicans have been the most criminally corrupt party to hold the office of the presidency by a long shot. The current administration shows every sign of adding to those numbers.

89 criminal convictions of Republicans versus 1 for the Democrats.

It's astounding.

And appalling.

His vote was made and it was unpopular. Over 70% of the people were for it. He changed his actions after the vote not by his own reasoning but by pressure from voters. He was concerned for his electability not the people. So .....yeah, I can see how that would bother you.

Democratic Sen. Cory Booker announced that he will be pausing fundraising from pharmaceutical companies, a move that comes after months of activist criticism for his vote against allowing drug reimportation to the United States.

He helped kill that. Screw Cory Booker. People will wonder why I do not support him when it's Booker vs Trump. He simply does not understand why this was wrong all along and on top of that, it's unlikely he actually stops taking their money.
