So Walden, Bonamici and Blumenauer ALL THREE voted for fast-track?

I thought I lived in a "Blue State".

5. Rick knows full well his seat is still in play.

 

And he needs every Joe Six Pack Vote he can muster. As of yesterday,the Range got a gift with the Electric Power Rate break and he knows damn well how that is going to play out. It is a inside game on the Hill and Rick dodged one this time.

8. Yes. BTW I am wondering about that gift to the Electric Power Rate. I do not understand the

impact on all of us. I know that we need to keep the jobs in all those industries but what is going on?

9. Years ago NSP had a special rate for high usage customers and it was called

 

I believe the Penny Rate. All Residential rates that did not have Electric Heat,were charged a hidden surcharge. All those on the Range and had MLP,did not get whacked,just Twin City Metro and Mankato.

3. Well, as far as I am concerned the White House is not actually blue, either.

 

Maybe green - the color of money.

6. Actually all FOUR of them voted for Fast Track if you include Schrader too!

 

Only Peter DeFazio is working for the people in our state in the House. We need to call him to run against Wyden if Wyden fails to vote the right way in the Senate. I would like to think that DeFazio would at some point realize the importance of him doing this, and hopefully doing it quickly to send a strong message to Wyden and other Democrats that there will be a cost associated to working just for the wealthy's interests and not average Americans.

We as a state that voted heavily Democratic last election do not deserve to be respresented this way!

Those in Portland area go to this meeting tonight to help us plan for how to deal with this stuff in the coming days...

11. All except DeFazio

 

He pretty much always votes on the correct side of things.

But that's what I thought about Bonamici and Blumenauer too.
