Quote from tewdles
I have been wondering for awhile, why do our elected officials care more about Grover Norquist's thoughts or opinions than they do ours...their constituents?
Interesting question for which I have no answer. It happens on both sides of the political aisle. Ben Nelson was a well-liked and long-serving Democrat from my home state of NE, which leans heavily Republican in most areas. He acknowledged receiving overwhelming feedback from constituents against Obamacare, yet cast what might be considered the deciding vote in its favor. It cost him his political career.
