Let's see if the claims that this was done against the will of the people is true or not.
1) What is the name of your representative?
2) Is he Democrat or Republican?
3) Which way did he vote on health care?
4) Did he vote the way you wished?
5) Did he vote the way your district wished?
For that last question...you will have to show proof. Show a local poll from your local district that shows the district was against it.
If you can't show this...then you haven't done your homework and have no right to complain. Don't refer to the national polls...those shouldn't represent the individual districts or dictate how an individual representative should vote.
Why use national polls when we have a community of individuals spread out over the country that can show local politics???
I'm interested to see the results.

In a University of New Hampshire poll last month, 58 percent of Granite Staters said they disapprove of Obama's handling of health care reform. Reps. Carol Shea-Porter and Paul Hodes, who damaged themselves with their previous votes for health care reform, are being asked to support their President by voting against their constituents. Will Hodes and Shea-Porter vote with Obama again? What will Jeanne Shaheen, who is not up for election until 2016, do?
However, Cuellar says he's not keeping track of how many are "for" or "against" it.
