Another "tail wags dog" story?

In the recent news I've heard many say that Republican Senators John McCain, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski "betrayed their party" by voting against the recent Republican healthcare replacement bill. I find that statement shocking and disappointing. 

Should you vote for your congressman or Senator to go to Washington and vote how Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell (if they are a Republican) or Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer (if they are a Democrat) tells them to, or should you vote to send them to Washington to represent YOU and YOUR interests? And if your interest sometimes differs with whatever their party leader wants, who should they owe their allegiance to?


  1. We have a "representative" government and politicians should vote with their constituents in mind, not what party bosses expect.

    1. True, and I didn't vote for Paul or Mitch or Nancy or Chuck.

  2. I agree; anytime every single member of any party votes the same way, there is something wrong with the system.
