Save the space. These five will always vote the party line. They have their talking points so well memorized that they can recite them in their sleep.

Several weeks ago I sent a letter via email to Bingaman, Udall and Lujan. I had spent a great deal of time thinking out my positions and articulating them. I asked in the letter that if they were going to respond with talking points, not to bother.

Within a week I did get a reply from Bingaman (probably written by a staffer, which is fine with me). It did address my issues directly and it was obvious they had taken the time to read my message. We obviously don't agree philosophically, but at least they did respond.

I haven't heard a peep out of Udall or Lujan. Nothing new for Udall, though. I've written to him many times over the years and never once got a reply. Looks like Lujan is following in his footsteps.

I agree with Petchy. These guys vote the party line whether its in the best interest of New Mexicans or not. I hope voters remember this come reelection time.

Glad to see the votes going for the interest of New Mexicans instead of being split. I applaud our congressional delegation. That is why we elected them! That is why we turned New Mexico blue. Thanks to each and every one of them.

the best interests of the NM and the nation are being served by moving forward. The other guys have got nothing to offer. When they rejoin the country and bring some ideas to the table instead of working for more failure then they will find people willing to listen to them.

These clowns vote however Pelosi and Reid tell them to. Teague is turning out to be just as left wing as the others, like voting for HB146, the bloated with pork, anti-business and anti-public access bill. What a bunch of no brainers we have, just being lap dogs for Pelosi and Reid, disgusting.

I see we have a couple of contributors here who have memorized the left-wing talking points.

Be very afraid of Nancy Pelosi! She's the most powerful person in the country right now, and if she's not a socialist she's pretty darned close to it. She has the power to pass legislation without debate or amendment. Fortunately it has to also go through the senate where there's a ghost of a chance of blocking the really bad stuff.
