I wonder why, of all the hundreds of votes in Washington by our representatives, the Courier chooses ones that show the 'evil' Republicans voting against bigger government? Is this supposed to convince us that Republicans are 'heartless'. Actually I am cheering our representatives who have the backbone to vote against higher government spending. Bigger government is the problem, not the solution.
