House Appropriations Chairman Dave Obey (D-Wis.) said Friday he canceled meetings with a New Orleans delegation because a Louisiana lawmaker had defied party leadership on a procedural vote the night before.I was always under the impression that Representatives were supposed to vote for their constituents interests. While procedural votes are necessary, it seems ludicrous to punish someone for them.
And he’s warning others who do the same thing that they’ll get the same treatment.
Did Obey ever think he was perhaps wrong? He certainly doesn't get that he is being petty.
