Our two United States senators, Jon Kyl and John McCain, seem to be stuck in a negative rut. They were against the stimulus package, they voted against the repeal of the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell legislation, and they came out against the ratification of the START Treaty. Both senators have a large degree of negativity associated with them via their voting records.
Their only original “positives” seems to have been the “build the danged fence” and the “10-point immigration solution plan,” neither of which we’ve heard much about since the November election.
Whether we elect Democrats or Republicans, liberals or conservatives, males or females, we need to change the personnel representing Arizona in the U.S. Senate. Two crotchety, old and negative U.S. senators from our state should be replaced by people with a more positive outlook toward problem solving.
We need people in the U.S. Senate representing us that will propose, not oppose, solutions to the problems that our state and country face.
Doesn’t U.S. Senators Terry Goddard and Kirk Adams have an intelligent, positive and vibrant ring to it?!
