Both of my Senators - who are Democrats - voted with their party in the recent gun control confrontation. Leahy also participated in the sit-in, and Bernie made a fairly disgusting speech after all four measures failed. So he is no longer an Independent in his heart. So... neither Senator represents the will of the Vermonters who installed them in Congress, but rather the political party they caucus with. I expected better, even though Leahy is no longer a Vermonter, but a D.C. dweller for several decades now. I've been an Independent for all my voting life, and now I am forced to vote a straight Republican ticket, state and federal; except for The Donald. Magnum, will you accept the Prez job if elected?
