Blue Dog Kurt Schrader Has To GO

This is the final straw for me.

Yesterday he voted directly Against nearly 9000 sick and hurting patients in just his district. There was an amendment offered to HR 5326 that would have DeFunded DEA Raids against Medical Cannabis Patients and their providers.
This amendment changed No laws, Required No states without medical cannabis laws to participate-it simply Honored States Rights by ending Federal interference in this most important health care program!

Amendment:

Roll Call

There are nearly 9,000 patients directly registered with the program in just his district, but he actually voted Against the more than 60,000 sick, injured and dying in the state.
Passing this amendment would have Reduced Tax Payer Expense and freed up FTE of agents to seek actual criminals and promote public safety.
This would have ended federal interference in State Rights matters.

This Blue Dog has to go-One cannot "walk the fence" in politics. I'd rather have a Republican. At least we'd know where we stand.

1. I've been redistricted from Blumenauer to Schrader. I can't stand Schrader so much that I've already

written him about his vote for CISPA bill and his advocacy for Simpson-Bowles Cat Food Commission. If he had a primary challenger I would have voted for that person. Instead, I left the circle blank next to his name. Fuck him.
