are you referring to John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, and Hillary Clintoon?

they voted for it along with the mass majority of their peers.

or are you saying that after their vote and they changed their minds for political reasons they are exonerated for their decision to go to war?

Gee, what a surprise. Facts show that they and the United Nations bought into the false intel also. As usual though, pass the blame off and point the finger the other way. Why didn't you show how the GOP voted?

Because Liberal Linda P in her post was insinuating that the Liberal Democrats had no involvement in approving the war with Iraq which the Liberal Democrats voted for too and was trying to insinuate that it was just only Conservative & Liberal Republicans is what Linda P was insinuating.

People with law degrees are to be excluded from running for office. Most of our members of the House and Senate are lawyers. You can see what that has done for us ! In addition to jacking their wages up to $176.000/yr, they can't get anything done. Speaking of wages, their wages should be no higher than the average wage earned by their constituients, government wage earners are to be excluded from the calculation for "average wage". To get their current wages up to the $176,000, they said a wage in that neighborhood would attract the "best and brightest" people to run for office. Once again, you can see what that has done for us.

Poverty in John Boehner's District

by Greg Kaufmann

For forty years, Tina Osso has worked on food and poverty issues serving nearly all of speaker John Boehner’s 8th Congressional District of Ohio. She came to that work in 1973, when the oil embargo resulted in her losing her job, and she unexpectedly found herself in line at a food pantry, where she began volunteering.

“It changed the course of my life,” says Osso.

Ten years later, she founded the Shared Harvest Foodbank where she still serves as executive director today. The food bank distributes food to pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, nutrition programs for seniors and children, and operates antipoverty programs as well.

Osso describes herself as “an aging hippie, a political activist and a stand-up comedian wannabe, trying her best to do the right thing at the right time.” But among her colleagues she’s earned a reputation as “a longtime people’s advocate,” according to Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, executive director of the Ohio Association of Second Harvest Foodbanks in Columbus.

“She has her finger to the pulse of those in need in the 8th District as much as anyone, and that need is greater now than it has been in decades,” says Hamler-Fugitt.

Indeed in 2009, childhood poverty rose over six points in the Boehner district to reach 19.1 percent , or 29,173 kids. Overall, 14 percent of Boehner’s constituents live below the federal poverty line of $22,400 per year for a family of four. Shared Harvest’s work has more than doubled—it distributed approximately 7 million pounds of food in 2007, and 16 million pounds in 2010.
