Ros-Lehtinen manages a bill to bellyflop defeat in US House

Very pleasing to see my representative in the US House, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, fail today. The story can be read here in The Cable blog from Foreign Policy magazine. As chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, she was floor manager for this misbegotten bill trying to punish the United Nations, but even her own party was far from unanimous on her side. Republican Peter King of New York said denying the money would create a security hazard that could endanger tourists and UN employees, not to forget residents of New York.

It’s a particular misery to live in FL-18 and have Ros-Lehtinen be my representative. Usually it makes me feel way out of it. The English language seems broken, especially around the word represent. Today is a sort of rehab day.
