He is a proud member of the 113th Congress. Least productive in legislative history. Receives $174,000 in salary and full medical benefits. No bills sponsored or introduced to better the state of the middle class.
No job bills. No immigration reform. No common sense gun laws.No wage increases for minimum wage workers. No bills promoting food safety, occupational safety. No bills repairing our infrastructure.
I think we need to demand a refund of the $50 million we spend to fund Congress.
If you would like to address Mr.Collins it won't be during this recess.
No town halls scheduled during this vacation. He must must need the rest after his stressful and busy bodywork schedule.

Please don't' complain - he is doing exactly what Right Wing Wacko Republicans want.

He's standing by, or lounging nearby, watching the rest of the country repair the damage Right Wing Wacko policies cause,
so that he and his Right Wing Wacko buddies can rape and pillage the country as soon as it recovers sufficiently to be raped and pillaged again.

Aparently you don't get it.
It's not a Democratic issue or a Republican issue. No one is getting any representation. He ain't working for no one but himself. And basically he ain't working at all.

Unfortunately upon this mountain, and the Nation as well obviously, many are asleep and simply just don't get it.

As Rome burns, the masses refuse to face the issues of our demise, for want for personal revenge and attack.

A Republican Case for Climate Action
By WILLIAM D. RUCKELSHAUS, LEE M. THOMAS, WILLIAM K. REILLY and CHRISTINE TODD WHITMAN
Published: August 1, 2013
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/02/opinion/a-r... ;

EACH of us took turns over the past 43 years running the Environmental Protection Agency. We served Republican presidents, but we have a message that transcends political affiliation: the United States must move now on substantive steps to curb climate change, at home and internationally.

There is no longer any credible scientific debate about the basic facts: our world continues to warm, with the last decade the hottest in modern records, and the deep ocean warming faster than the earth’s atmosphere. Sea level is rising. Arctic Sea ice is melting years faster than projected.

The costs of inaction are undeniable. The lines of scientific evidence grow only stronger and more numerous. And the window of time remaining to act is growing smaller: delay could mean that warming becomes “locked in.”

A market-based approach, like a carbon tax, would be the best path to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions, but that is unachievable in the current political gridlock in Washington. Dealing with this political reality, President Obama’s June climate action plan lays out achievable actions that would deliver real progress. He will use his executive powers to require reductions in the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by the nation’s power plants and spur increased investment in clean energy technology, which is inarguably the path we must follow to ensure a strong economy along with a livable climate.

The president also plans to use his regulatory power to limit the powerful warming chemicals known as hydrofluorocarbons and encourage the United States to join with other nations to amend the Montreal Protocol to phase out these chemicals. The landmark international treaty, which took effect in 1989, already has been hugely successful in solving the ozone problem.

Rather than argue against his proposals, our leaders in Congress should endorse them and start the overdue debate about what bigger steps are needed and how to achieve them — domestically and internationally.

This county votes Republican... it wouldn't matter IF a Dem would be the better choice.

This entire state is so BLINDLY "red"... just look at the two utter IDIOTS we have as Senators!! Repub prez candidates don't even bother to campaign here any more... they know the have the GA "lemmings" in their pocket.

PLEASE, people... vote the PERSON, not the party! I'd bet not 70% of those voting along party lines have a CLUE where their candidate stands on GA or local issues.

Would you at least TRY to be politically correct? The PC term is "mentally challenged-do".

Since you never seem to be "correct, politically", you might as well be politically correct. >;-)

Zoller would have been far superior.

Collins is a stereotypical stepping-stone politician hack
