Oh boy, how sad. Rep. Henry Waxman is one of the very few sane voices in Congress today. I felt good just knowing he was there and that he always had our backs.
And if you called his office to ask him to support an upcoming bill, he often answered the phone himself and if not it was his voice on the answering machine, not some intern’s. You didn’t really have to call to ask him to support an important-to-the-people issue. You could put money on it that he would vote for the good of the people he represented.
Too bad the majority of Congress do not act on behalf of the people. They’d rather spend their time in Congress running their crazy agendas and blocking the president.
We will miss your voice in Congress; it was always the voice of sanity in insane surroundings. Bless you, Henry Waxman and thank you, thank you, thank you for your service to the people of Santa Monica.
