But what good is Mike McMahon?
On Sunday, he voted against health care reform, citing concerns about decreased funding to hospitals in his district. McMahon also voted against the bill that would withdraw troops from Afghanistan, which provoked a protest outside his Brooklyn office. So, he's not anti-war. He's not reforming healthcare. What good is he?
McMahon, of course, represents a conservative-tilting district, which went for McCain in '08 by four percentage points. And so it shouldn't be surprising that his voting record tilts conservative (he earned a B from the NAACP, for example). The point is, what good is a majority when you can't get Democrats to vote as a bloc? I'll say it again: what good is Mike McMahon?
