Here is an example of why:


The obstructionist, outrageously vainglorious and hypocritical GOP Party of NO is best exemplified by Rep. John Mica (r) of Florida District 7 on just this one matter of many vital to Florida and America:

President Barack Obama just signed into law the ominbus $410 billion appropriations bill.  It included $263 thousand for the Army Corps of Engineers to study beach erosion on Florida's Northeastern Coast.  It is in addition to an earlier appropriation of $418,000 the Corps has already received for the study.  Of course, the GOP or Party of NO calls this 'pork'. 
(see- http://www.news-journalonline.com/NewsJournalOnline/News/Flagler/flaFLAG02031209.htm)

For years, Mica has told us that Florida's beaches are important for our future, and we must find a solution to begin the work of restoring our coastline- the key to preserving the tourist economy in particular.
 
Mica, reached by the St. Augustine Record at his office after the omnibus bill signing, told them he was glad the appropriations bill passed.  "This has drug out since last September,"  Mica said. 
(see- http://www.staugustine.com/stories/031109/nation_031109_027.shtml)

Perhaps 'drugged' is what he is, since Mica voted NO on the bill!  Can you believe it?
(see-  http://www.opencongress.org/roll_call/show/5268)

As a senior member of the Party of NO, John Mica is NO good for Florida or America (right along with the rest of them)!

FAYE ARMITAGE, will you please stand up and take on at least this clown in the next midterm elections.  We need your leadership in Congress!
