Howling Latina received an e-mail from my congresswoman, Jo Ann Davis who will go down to defeat in the fall.
Shawn O'Donnell, an excellent Democratic candidate is running against her.
At first glance, HL thought Davis wrote, "I hope that you are enjoying spying..."
But actually she was wishing me a super spring; and then started talking about all the wonderful things she's been up to on the Hill.
She supported H.R. 3893, the Gasoline for America's Security Act, which would make it illegal for oil companies to gouge the public; but alas, the Senate stalled the bill.
Davis also supported H.R. 5253, the Federal Energy Price Protection Act, which bans " price gouge for crude oil, gasoline, diesel fuel, home heating oil, or any bio-fuel. "
Hmmm, didn't see a whole lot of difference between 3893 and 5253, anyone?!?
Davis has also been busy supporting President Bush's instruction for the Department of Justice to investigate "possible manipulation of gasoline prices."
Lady, there ain't no question about it. The oil and gas companies have been gouging the public for the last year.
Davis also supports extending the deadline for seniors without paying any penalty.
Oh yea, and she loves me. I'm a person in her district who ALWAYS votes!
