Thank or Spank

Do you deplore the recent House vote against the Rohrabacher-Hinchey marijuana amendment? Do you believe Congressional endorsement of federal raids in states where marijuana is legal demonstrates disrespect for common sense, compassion, and the 9th and 10th Amendments? Since your Representative took an oath to defend the Constitution, do you consider this vote criminal?

If Congress lacks your consent to mis-govern in this manner, you can register your opinion using this Thank or Spank campaign.

Find out, at the House clerk website, how your Representative voted, so you know whether they deserve your gratitude or their attitude needs to be adjusted.
