- Rep. John Kline voted NO on the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act (Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education (GIVE) Act. This will reauthorize and reform the national service laws. Guess John doesn't believe in volunteerism or Education.
- Rep. John Kline voted NO to amend the executive compensation provisions of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 208. This act prohibits unreasonable and excessive compensation and compensation not based on performance standards. The bill intended to curb bonuses of executives at financial institutions that receive Troubled Asset Relief Program money. Kline must of thought that voting against limiting fat cat's million/billion bonuses might affect hi fundraising....afterall...can't have CEOs mad at Kline for limiting their outrageous compensations?!
- Rep. John Kline voted NO to the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. This bill gives the FDA regulatory authority over tobacco, but would not allow the agency to ban cigarettes or other tobacco products. John must feel that there's no reason to protect the public health.
- Rep. John Kline voted NO to the Congressional Budget for Fiscal Year 2010. This is where the house pass their version of the national budget for fiscal year 2010. SO in essence he couldn't work as a team with his own body to reach consensus.
Right now people are deeply worried about staying employed and taking care of their families. Democrats with the help of moderate Republicans are trying to set right our economy and improve the country. They are reaching across partisan lines to make a difference by working as a team. Meanwhile...Kline is stuck in his old ways of 'my way' only....sigh...it's going to be a long predictable year for Kline. Unfortunately his allegiance to ideology hurts his all of us.
