OT: NYT Gives a "Go Blue!" for Congressional Voting

Submitted by Tully Mars on November 2nd, 2011 at 11:24 AM

The New York Times has an article on missing congressional votes.  At the bottom of the article, they say that Michigan as the most congressional delegates that have not missed a vote and follows that statement up with "Go Blue!"  

I just greatly appreciated that they feel the state prefers us to East Lansing. 

(Go Blue is in the fourth to last paragraph of the article)

Shocking that in today's age of technology, there is no way for members of Congress to vote remotely via video conferencing when they are not in DC. Another sad reflection on the efficiency of our government.

Only two of the four Michigan reps with perfect attendence have U-M degrees:

  • Sander Levin: Univeristy of Chicago, Columbia
  • Justin Amash: University of Michigan (Economics 2002), University of Michigan Law School (2005)
  • Candice Miller: Macomb Community College, Northwood University
  • Fred Upton: University of Michigan (Journalism, 1975)
