They Don't Believe in Representative Democracy, Part 2

The strangest part of the Democrats' suicide pact to pass Obamacare is their blatant disregard for the will of their constituents. Wasn't part of civics class about how we elect representatives to go to Washington to do our bidding? Somebody needs to tell these people they work for us. Not that they care about that because, remember, they know better than you.

Apparently, Democrats are working on the RINOs from Maine to invoke cloture. This is the sort of thing that gives rightwingers fodder for their "throw out the moderates" stance. If Collins and Snowe showed any backbone, it would be encouraging, but I don't expect that.
