So Why Is Rep. Gene Taylor A Democrat?
Not only did Mississippi Blue Dog Democratic Congressman Gene Taylor vote against cap and trade, health care, and climate change legislation, he voted for John McCain in the 2008 election.
Mr. Taylor, in an interview with the Biloxi Sun Herald, says he’s also not planning to vote again for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Mr. Taylor’s Republican opponent, Steven Palazzo, a Mississippi state legislator, keeps tying him to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Mr. Taylor said he had backed Ms. Pelosi because of her post-Katrina pledges to add wind damage to federal flood insurance coverage. But that was then.
So why not switch parties and put progressive like me out of our misery. Says Taylor: “Both parties are screwed up. They’re screwed up in different ways.”Click here for reuse options!
