Eighth district Congresswoman Emerson has stood up to Eric Cantor while Seventh District Congressman Long has decided to stand up against the Humane Society. The KC Star published an editorial critical of politicizing the Joplin tragedy. For a moment it seemed Eric Cantor changed his tune ever so slightly; however he made it clear on Face The Nation he is still using the tragedy as a policy lever.
It is nice Congressman Long is speaking out about something; however, undermining the will of Missouri voters on a State issue while serving in the Federal Government is one of the things about government I thought was making his voters Fed Up with big government.
