19. Rothman voted no
That's your Rep, right? He joined 159 other Democrats in voting against this, as did the 4 Democrats in my state. Are you going to help your own Democrat keep his seat? Or are you going to run around in an anti-Democratic rant that will only make it harder for Rothman - not to mention Menendez who we need to take over the Senate. Why would you want to make it harder for your own Democrats who are fighting hard for you?
