You Job Is To Vote

Republicans are agigtated because Democrats scheduled another vote on a second SCHIP bill today, when some Republicans from California are out following the President around in an attempt to look competent.

"Members should not have to choose between making an important vote in Washington or being in California helping our constituents to get the aid they need to rebuild their homes and their lives,"

Quite frankly, your job is to represent your people in Washington. You have staffs in your districts that handle constiuents. After important work is done in Washington, then you go home and visit victims and offer help. Is it necessary to be there right now? Are people going to be that upset if you say "Due to a busy session this week in Congress, I will be unable to return to my district until Saturday, but my constiuents are in my hearts?" They don't need you, they need food, water and money.

Or are those photo ops for your reelection website so important it can't wait two days.

Or maybe they're just looking for photo ops to put on their campaign websites next year.
