Opinion: Don’t Re-Elect Labrador

Raul Labrador is a nice guy. I first met him at a Roundup in the summer of 2008. He is affable and smart. Thus, I'm not sure that the Congressman from Idaho's first Congressional district actually believes the things he says to get elected. Labrador works hard to keep rich people rich at the expense of the rest of us. Here is a breakdown of three main reasons he should not be re-elected: (1) He wants to privatize social security. ... (2) The congressman wants void the affordable healthcare act. ... (3) He wants to end subsidies for renewable energy sources but still favors tax breaks for big oil. ... (4) On top of all of that he still wants to repeal the 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution/Michael Strickland, Yahoo Contributor Network. More here.

Question: Has Congressman Raul Labrador done enough in his first year to win your vote for re-election?
