SUPPORTED Cap & Trade legislation that would have brought us $7 a gallon gas and as President Obama has stated would make electricity rates necessarily sky rocket.
This one is well known considering that Waxman sponsored the bill in the House and President Obama is famous for making the statement about the need under his plan for skyrocketing electricity rates.
VOTED TO CUT Medicare spending by a half a trillion dollars which would severely hurt seniors. Time to go Henry!
This one is also well known since the Health Care Reform bill just passed a few weeks ago.
VOTED AGAINST missile defense funding, which jeopardized the US and Israel.
Waxman is famous for voting against missile defense program funding going all the way back to 1983 when Reagan first proposed the SDI system.
TRIED to make over-the-counter vitamins and supplements prescription only.
On this one, Waxmans original bill was defeated a few years ago but last week, lo and behold, Waxman inserted this language into the House version of the Financial Reform Bill AFTER IT HAD ALREADY PASSED!
