Dont you find it disturbing that anyone should vote in "lockstep"?
Legislators are supposed to have wisdom, integrity, a wide scope in their point of view, and a duty to their constituents- not loyalty to an ideology or a party above all else. The modern Republican Party disgusts me when I see this going on. And I'm someone who believes in the classic more libertarian aspects of the party... but the robots? we dont need votebots in the government.. it doesnt look good.
So I applaud the NE Republicans who vote out of the "lockstep" and same for the Blue Dog Democrats around the country that are in similar situations... we need more diversity of opinion and open discussion in this country...
not a Politburo- wether red or blue!
