CT Reps Vote – July 21, 2006

The CT reps was out there trying they were. Trying and trying for personal freedoms. For the the latest updates on stem cells, marriage between a man and a woman, the veto override, Israel, courts and the pledge you’ll want to see what the House has been up to lately. Stupid Bush’s first veto. Damn him and his only veto.

I’m not on the happy side of fence regarding the piss poor tactics the House used regarding the pledge. For those with score cards… Rosa voted NO.
