Last Chance for Blanche
Blanche Lincoln will be in Northwest Arkansas for her Farewell Tour before going to work peddling influence for a high-priced lobbying outfit on K Street. Rumors are that she might actually show up in a venue that allows her constituents to ask questions and get some explanation for her bizarre voting record.
If so, I want to ask her how it put Arkansas first to:
Sponsor the deficit-inducing reduction of the estate tax for billionaires,
Sponsor the climate killing resolution to strip the EPA of its already limited powers,
Vote against the DREAM Act,
Vote against Pell Grants and student loan reform
Vote against repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell
Oppose the Public Option for citizens needing health care
Vote against majority rule when employees vote to have a union
Take millions in campaign cash from lobbyists and out of state corporate PACs
Support NAFTA and CAFTA to encourage the flight of American jobs
Continue to support unchecked the longest war in U.S. history
Vote for thousands of dollars in federal subsidies for John David Lindsey
This could be your last chance to ask, and if you Don't Ask, she Won't Tell.
