Congressman Michael Arcuri is asking Democrats in New York’s 24th district to re-elect him again this year, but really, why should Democrats bother to support Arcuri?
Mike Arcuri has opposed climate legislation, and worked to help the Republicans block health care reform last year until the Tea Party movement could sink it. Last week, Congressman Arcuri voted to extend George W. Bush’s Patriot Act, without any reforms whatsoever.
Blue Dog Arcuri is no friend of the causes that Democratic voters care about. Why should Democrats help him keep a hold on his seat in Congress?
