In the Crosshairs – 18 Senators & 144 Reps


Last night, following the lead of Senator Harry Reid, the Democratic Majority Leader from Searchlight, NV and Mitch McConnell, the GOP Senator leading the Minority, both houses of Congress reopened government and raised the debt ceiling.

Eighteen Senators and 144 House members cast votes that would have sent the country’s economy into a free fall and kept the doors of government locked. These were all Republican politicians with representatives from Texas and Florida predominating.

With many facing reelection in 2014, identifying these Tea Party-usurped politicians is step one for those of us who want to change the dynamics of governance in our country.
