One Less Dem in 2010

Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) steps on his tiny little member. He told the Nutroots that he would vote against the interests of his own constituents. In his own words:
MASSA: So what happens in my town hall meetings frankly is important, because I am in one of the most right wing Republican districts in the country, and I’m not asking you guys to go back to wherever and send people to me. This is a generic statement of what can I do? Well that’s one thing we can do...

MASSA: I will vote for the single payer bill.

PARTICIPANT: Even if it meant you were being voted out of office?

MASSA: I will vote adamantly against the interests of my district if I actually think what I am doing is going to be helpful.

MASSA: I will vote against their opinion if I actually believe it will help them.

So Lets hope that he people of NY District 29 will remind him of the first line from his Official Web page
As your member of Congress, my #1 priority is serving you. This is your Congressional Office and your Congressional staff and your opinion on the critical issues facing Western New York matters.

Let's hope he has a job lined-up for 2011.
