Cao: My Constituents Are Poor

Louisiana Representative Anh (Joseph) Cao was the only Republican to vote for the health care bill:

“I have a constitutional duty to make the right decision for my district whether or not the decision was popular. I had to make a decision of conscience based on the needs of the people of my district. A lot of my constituents are uninsured, a lot of them are poor.”

  1. we have so many issues, i bet yall would really love it down here…

    meanwhile the odds are very much against cao to survive another term. contributors have asked for their money back and fundraisers have been cancelled.
