RedState.org Comments on CAFTA, Lists Democrats who Voted Yea

RedState.org has some good comments on CAFTA.
The Republicans and a few brave Democrats have voted to extend a pro-market, pro-growth trade deal to Central American nations. CAFTA passed by a 217-215 margin in the House which is always more prone to protectionist tendencies than the Senate.
Read the rest. Here is the list of Demcorats who voted yea. Latinos make note. These are the only Democrats that actually did something to change Central America's future.

Roll Call:
  • Bean
  • Cooper
  • Cuellar
  • Dicks
  • Hinojosa
  • Jefferson
  • Matheson
  • Meeks (NY)
  • Ortiz
  • Skelton
  • Snyder
  • Tanner
  • Towns
I have to agree with Adam C.
Kudos to those Democrats who put the country ahead of their party's leadership. It reassuring to see that party doesn't always trump nation to these Democrats
