How Long Does it Take For a New Congresswoman to Compromise?

This campaign ad says that Betsy Markey is ready to go to congress with a ten point plan to cut spending. She says in the ad, "My parents taught us not to spend more than we make". Just three weeks in to her first term in congress, Markey voted to spend $825 Billion that we do not have. Whatever happened to integrity?

They quickly forget the promises they made and the people they represent!

She must need more rolls for her pennies and that's the only way to get more! -jim

Or, perhaps her integrity is in the same place as President Obama's when he made three exceptions to his executive order limiting lobbyists from working with his cabinet.

Eric: I'm afraid the elder politicians in DC quickly pervert what might have been noble yet ambitious ideals.

Jim: I agree. At least for one day the GOP has shown some fight. The past few years have been embarrassing to watch.
