Remember key vote on shutdown, debt ceiling come election time

October 28, 2013 

Remember election time: Rep. Vern Buchanan voted "yes" and Sen. Marco Rubio voted "no" on ending the government shutdown and raising the debt ceiling.

It's time congressmen and senators put people ahead of party.

As a Democrat I will openly admit: I appreciate a congressman who puts people before party and in this case Vern Buchanan did so and even though I don't always agree with his policies, I thank him.

Unity is the only way to solve America's problems. Perhaps this is a start.
