Congressman Roger Williams: Starting Strong
Cahnman's Musings was very critical of Roger Williams during his runoff against Wes Riddle. We got to know Roger better during the general election campaign. In that spirit, we commend Roger's strong start to his Congressional career.
In his first consequential vote as a Congressman, Roger Williams voted AGAINST the Hurricane Sandy boondoggle.
This is an encouraging sign. Disaster 'relief' bills are a place where Congress frequently substitutes cheap sentiment for effective policy-making. That Roger Williams saw through the cheap demagoguery to recognize this boondoggle speaks highly of him; well done sir.
