    I'm not trying to instill a false hope, or suggest that we be lax about fighting this, as far as I'm concerned, fire all your guns at once. But I thought it was interesting that she hasn't had one bill successfully implemented.

    Just thought it would be nice to show that there is hope, and lets not let this be her first victory.

    I find it interesting that she has no cosponsors for this bill

    Good to know about her record. I'm still of the opinion that this will die in committee, but it helps that she already has a reputation in Congress as someone who submits stupid bills.

    Well even a blind squirrel finds a nut eventually. Don't uncork the bottles just yet. Lets just hope and pray her losing streak continues.

    Haha, point well taken. I would think the sign that she submits more than average an amount of bills with the fact that none of them ever passing as some indication of that sign. I won't hold my breath though.

    Well, that's not a good sign. Can't say it's not surprising looking at the states that most of the sponsors come from.

    I can't imagine what the people who voted for her think of this record. Well, they're probably not even aware of it. They probably just let themselves think that she's "serving their interests."

    Any person like her, who gets elected to congress because of one simple stupid thing that happened to them (her son and husband being shot) is pretty much bound to just use up oxygen in the Capitol and nothing more. Oh, and cost us taxpayers money -- they do that, too.
