The 'No' guy

I'm one of the many people who live in California's Second Congressional District, represented by the Honorable Wally Buffoon. No, his last name isn't Buffoon but that name seems just so...right. Anyway, I happen to subscribe to the California news from, a great group that watches your lawmakers for you and reports once a week on their activities. Nothing subversive about that...just the facts. And this weeks newsletter tells me that Wally Buffoon has voted against two bills, one being a bill that would reauthorize FEMA's Assistance to Firefighters grants and Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response program through FY2014. The second being a bill to change the formula that determines the Medicare physician fee schedule, with the intention of preventing a 21 percent reduction in Medicare payments to physicians.

From all appearances, Wally is against Medicare and Firemen. I can guarantee you that these two items will not be in his folksy newsletter that he sends once or twice a year. So, if you really want to know what your representatives are doing. take a look at and subscribe to their free updates for your stste and district.
