With Dems like Mike Ross...

Posted By on Mon, Sep 21, 2009 at 11:20 AM

... who needs the Repubs?  Rep. Mike Ross spoke to the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce this morning.  He maintained his opposition to a public option even though polls show more people in his district favor it than oppose it.  He said he couldn't support a public plan because when he returned home for the August recess, his constituents made it clear they didn't want it.  I guess the squeaky wheel gets the grease, huh? 

PS FROM MAX: Be sure to read that link to the Daily Kos polling, which was specifrically of Ross' Congressional District. A bare plurality favors a public option But I'd say the bigger news is that Ross' numbers in his own district aren't so hot. High unfavorable numbers. More disapprove of his actions on health care than approve. Gives you some idea of who attends those town halls.
