Many in the Kansas City area are represented in the U.S. House by Democrats Dennis Moore in Kansas’ 3rd District or Ike Skelton in Missouri’s 4th District. Both of these representatives claim to be moderate Democrats. In fact, they usually vote with left-wing Democratic Party leaders Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and President Obama.
They both voted for the $787 billion stimulus bill and for the American Clean Energy and Security Act that will raise utilities’ taxes, which will be passed on to Americans in higher utility bills. Both bills were drafted by the Democrats, completed in the early morning and voted on without time to be read or debated.
It is time to scrutinize the voting records of Moore and Skelton.
