  •  Before you call Meehan, take a look at his House (2+ / 0-)

    Drilling down into the specifics on his record, there was a big vote on food stamps in the House on September 19.

    Meehan was one of 15 Republicans who broke from the party line and voted with the Democrats against a cut in the program.  Here's a link to the roll call vote so that you can see that.

    That doesn't make Meehan a liberal but it's important to understand that some members cross party lines in both directions.  In the Northeast there are a few Republicans here and there who are more progressive than certain Democrats elsewhere.  

    Asking for an explanation of positions is a way to start the conversation.

    There is no existence without doubt.
