I REALLY can't believe how dumb people are. Van Hollen and Cardin are part of the PROBLEM, they are not even close to being any sort of solution. The dems have not come up with a budget in 3 yrs, but then they say the GOP is anti american, anti woman, anti employment, anti clean air, and clean water, etc etc. I am so glad I left the dumbocrap party after 30 yrs. People like cardin and van hollen, etc think that the American people are STUPID...well, all I see is that those who believe their lies and deciept are the STUPID ones. Get the facts right before you vote, don't be a village idiot and just vote party line.
