Come and Take it!: Wow, Senator Rubber Stamp Strikes Again

Come and Take it!: Wow, Senator Rubber Stamp Strikes Again: "Barbara Ann Radnofsky called Kay Bailey Hutchison out for opposing emergency appropriations for Veterans benefits. But even worse than that, it is the way she did it, according to Radnofsky in her press release,

'Sen. Hutchison is chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction and Veterans Affairs. In a floor speech on April 12, 2005 opposing Sen. Murray's Amendment for Emergency Supplemental Appropriations this year, she confessed to relying on the Secretary of Veterans Affairs (Congr Record S3457, 3465 et seq), while major organizations had already uncovered the truth in terms of needs.' Radnofsky continued, 'Had the issue of funding for veterans been presented to me as a sitting Senator, I would have vigorously done my homework. We expect our Senator to be an independent voice for Texans, not a rubber stamp for the administration.'"
