Well.. here are a few that are not:
"You Might Remember Bush Took Office With A 200 Billion Dollar Surplus!" Senator Al Franken
Alan Grayson, "Is Anyone Minding the Store at the Federal Reserve?"
Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) Remarks on House Floor on the Iraq war
And here is the expanded, (but not exhaustive by any means) list of Reps/Sens that make a difference (below). They may be pissing into the wind on many bills but they occasionally win one and are slowly but surely being integrated and accepted into the mainstream process. As we work toward electing more progressives we diminish the influences of corporate control on our economy and improve the health of our democratic system as a whole.
Al Franken, Anthony Weiner, Alan Grayson, Dennis Kucinich, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Peter DeFazio, Marcy Kaptur, Henry Waxman, Robert Wexler, Mel Watt, Louise Slaughter, Pete Stark, Barbara Lee, John Lewis, Ed Markey, George Miller, Jerrold Nadler, Eleanor Holmes-Norton, Maxine Waters, Jim McDermott, Pete Stark, Elijah Cummings, Carolyn Maloney, Sherrod Brown, Maria Cantwell, Elijah Cummings, Jeff Merkley, and Bernie Sanders.
Thanks to all who helped me with this list.
